Our Story

West End Reception and Events is here to serve Newton and the surrounding areas for all of their special event needs! In 2020 our owner and founder, Doug, opened up our business. Until we came about, there hadn’t been another local establishment that could accommodate up to 300 people. Doug had felt like our business was the missing piece to the town. Since then, we have grown into the most reputable place around for event planning. We are here to give you the most unique experience with event coordination!

Our main goal here at West End Reception and Events is customer satisfaction. We understand that event planning can be challenging and we want to make our client’s experience with us as stress-free as possible. We make sure your event with us is perfect from start to finish. Our team cleans up at the end of the event. From weddings and receptions to family reunions, we know these are special moments for you and your guests and we want to ensure you spend your time enjoying it while we take care of the rest!

We specialize in weddings and receptions, and we offer bridal and groom suites. With our premium venue, we can host parties, meetings, reunions, concerts, fundraisers, and more. We strive to bring your event ideas and dreams to life. We’ll work together with you and your vision to create your perfect day. Our team will ensure the best time for you and your guests!
