Wedding ceremonies & receptions at The Olympic

Our aim is to be the best wedding venue in Cedar Rapids

Our 10,000 square-foot space can accommodate 300+ guests for a seated dinner event. Our 111 year-old building provides beautiful architecture, history, and warmth for a glamorous and elegant event.

The Olympic provides several areas for you and your guests to enjoy. Located downtown in the heart of the New Bohemia District we are next to several bars to grab a drink. Just across the street at the NewBo City Market is the Bankers Trust Stage where you can have a beautiful outdoor ceremony. Take a walk down to the Czech Village for some beautiful shots and more great local bars.

Inside our facility we have a bar for your guests to sip on a cocktail. The mezzanine has our light and airy wedding suite for your bridal party to get ready, and is surrounded by large magnificent windows, perfect for those gorgeous closeup shots. Our large stage is perfect for your head table, band or DJ. Below that stage are our prep kitchen and second Green Room suite. Our Green Room provides a second warm and cozy area for your party to get ready for the day.
