New Partnership Will Bring More Events to the Greenhouse Annex at Mitchell Park Domes
The Zillis liquor license is also expected to be extended to the Annex, which will expand its appeal as a wedding venue.
MILWAUKEE – More wedding receptions, expos, and special events could be coming to the Mitchell Park Domes later this year, through a new partnership with Zillis Hospitality Group.
The partnership with Zillis, who already provide catering and event services at the Domes, will enable larger events to be hosted at the venue by adding the 600 capacity Greenhouse Annex to their agreement. The Zillis liquor license is also expected to be extended to the Annex, which will expand its appeal as a wedding venue.
Guy Smith, Interim Director at Milwaukee County Parks, said “We receive a lot of requests for events at the Domes as it’s such an iconic venue. Extending our existing partnership with Zillis to include the Greenhouse Annex will allow more couples to have their dream wedding at the Domes and it greatly expands the number, and variety, of events that can be held here during the winter.”
In order to expand the use of the event space at the Greenhouse Annex, Milwaukee County was unable to renew its lease with Fondy Food Market. This means that the Winter Farmers Market will be moving to a new, yet to be determined location, for the 2018-2019 cold weather season.
As well as events at the Mitchell Park Domes, Milwaukee County Parks offers over 120 rentable buildings and spaces throughout the county. Available rentals include some of the county’s most unique wedding venues, such as the Brown Deer Park Boathouse, Boerner Botanical Gardens and South Shore Pavilion. Private events can be held at Traveling Beer Garden locations.
Venue rentals raise over $1.5million for Milwaukee County Parks each year and help support local jobs through services such as professional photography, equipment rental, event planning and catering.
A new digital rental guide was recently published at countyparks.com to showcase the venues available to rent in Milwaukee County Parks.
