HISTORY

In 1908, Architect Newton C. Gauntt, a native of Illinois, designed the First Baptist Church. It was built at the cost of $26,182, according to National Register nomination documents.

The First Baptist Church has been a prominent, highly visible landmark in Downtown Yakima for over 100 years.  It has served many purposes and people over the last century, making it loved and seen as a monumental piece of Yakima’s history.

We plan to honor the historical integrity of the building as we open the doors to continue and serve the people of this city and beyond by providing them with a Yakima event venue where the historic and modern collide.

  77. My husband and I had our wedding reception at the Baptist Event Center this past June, and we couldn't have been happier we chose it as our venue! It is absolutely gorgeous and quintessential our out of town guests and local friends just loved it! Roger was our point person, and she could not have been more professional and fun to work with! He had wonderful and thoughtful ideas, clear and timely communication, and understood the "vision" we had for the night. Roger also respected our budget and was happy to work with us in creating a memorable night that was not going to break the bank. No question seemed too small or redundant for Roger, he was happy to make sure the night was perfect for us. Also worth noting: The food was delicious! Many of our guests are still talking about our catering company crab cakes, clam chowder, and taquitos. And my husband and I really appreciated the minibar and small plates the catering manager made for us to snack on while we waited for our "grand entrance." There were so many special touches the Baptist Event Center provided to make our reception stand out: I can't recommend the Baptist Event Center enough for any event, but especially a wedding, reception, party, event perfect space for anything!
  78. The Baptist Event Center knows how to host a great party and reception. From the very start, the event planner (Roger) was so gracious and welcoming to us and enthusiastic to bring our cocktail party to fruition. He was very organized and always corresponded in a timely fashion. He offered various menu options that were all fantastic and we were able to get to the one that fit best for our event and budget. During the date of installation, The Baptist Event Center was so helpful with the last-minute placement of items for decor and such. And during date of the event, the Baptist Event Center went far and beyond- the servers were fabulous and the food provided was delicious and the petite fours were to die for! 🙂 The open bar was fantastic, excellent service, top-notch all the way! They collaborated beautifully with the rest of the vendors and with the performers. This is our second time throwing an event at the Baptist Event Center, and it’s a favorite venue, added by the architectural masterpiece of this building and interior, historical background, We had so much fun celebrating both at our wedding party and 8 years after for "Roaring 20s NYE Ball" at the Baptist Event Center. Thank you Baptist Event Center staff for the awesome work you do! Cheers!

  85. Wow. That word pretty much sums up the entire experience I had with the Baptist Event Center. Roger teams were the event coordinators for my company's holiday party this year. From the early planning stages to the execution of the event, they couldn't have been more helpful, kind, patient, and accommodating. Our event turned out spectacular. The space was gorgeous. People are still talking about the party and the beauty of the building. I could not have pulled this off so seamlessly without the help of Baptist Event Center team though. I hope to be able to book another event with the Baptist Event Center again soon! Thank you for everything

I was looking online for a venue for wedding near me, and outdoor wedding venues near me and I didn't have much time to look and didn't have a chance to look at places that week I Attended my friend's wedding reception in this lavishly impeccable banquet wedding venue. Amazing so much history here. Beautiful reception with two floors of unforgettable memories. We were greeted by the photo booth guys, followed by a dazzling candy bar buffet with an array of sophisticated colors and treats; all the guests loved filling their bags full of candies & goodies, like little kids again. We headed over to the bar, mingled with others, and listened to the String Quartet play some tunes, and proceeded to the main dining room on the 11th floor. The beautiful couple made their grand entrance, and everyone tried to snap a picture of the lovely couple. We ate a savory dinner and headed back down to the 10th floor to a DJ rocking' tunes and raised the roof! Congratulations on their marriage and happiness forever. This church is where I want my wedding and reception to be this year.

When my boss took my whole department here to celebrate the successful completion of my internship we had a catering company come in and take care of everything as far as food went the hostess, the servers, and the chefs all addressed him by name and brought him his usual drink order. He also chooses this occasion to ask me to stay on board as I finished up my degree this was a pivotal moment in my nascent professional career, ah memories. Anyhow, on with the review, it offers an outstanding, diversified selection of chow, impeccable service and also houses The chefs stood alongside the food offerings and explain to them as you're checking out the goods.
