Northgate Community Center

The Northgate Community Center is part of the Seattle Parks system, and is located just east of Northgate Mall in North Seattle.  Anyone may rent the Hall, kitchen, and meeting rooms.  Our optional fees are for helping you with reservations, setting up and tearing down chairs and tables, helping with decorations, etc.  You may certainly do all of those things yourselves.  We just give you additional service choices to make planning a little easier for you.

As of July 2012 the Hall rents for $30/hr from 11am to 7pm Mon - Fri.  $85/hr evenings and weekends.  There is a $25 one time fee during normal business hours, with an additional $25 for after hours events.  The kitchen rents for $24/hr during the week, $48/hr evenings and weekends (2 hour minimum).  Additional meeting rooms are available if you want changing rooms for the bride and/or groom.  Other fees may apply, you can check it all out for yourself at the Seattle parks website.

Hall Rental  $200 (plus facility cost)
This is a convenience service that makes your life a little easier on your special day.  We work with the Northgate Community Center.  The Northgate Community Center has a phenomenal hall, a beautiful lawn, a playground, and a commercial kitchen that is a perfect all-in-one location for your ceremony and/or reception. 

Here is what we do for you with this service:

 - Make the reservation with the Community Center for you. 
 - Set up and tear down the chairs and/or tables.
 - Help you with decorations that you bring.
 - Help you use the background music system in the hall (just bring your music player).
 - Coordinate with an outside caterer (if needed).
 - Clean up when it is over.
 - Waive the “Pick Your Spot” fee of $100

Our fee does not pay the Community Center for the use of their facilities.  These fees are very reasonable beginning at $60 for two hours during the week. It is easy to find, and there is plenty of free parking.

(Note, we are not responsible for damages caused by the wedding party.)

You can choose to have your ceremony inside against a beautiful backdrop of nature or outside on the lawn.  The sliding doors on the end of the hall allow wide, walk in access between the 1100 sq foot patio, the lawn, and the hall.


At the other end of the hall is a sliding window to the commercial kitchen.  This allows easy access for food service.  The wall opposite the lawn is a side to side tall mirror that provides additional light and a grand feeling of spaciousness.  The hall accommodates 175 standing, 150 sitting theater style, and 100 seated comfortably at round or oblong tables.
