Main Level Arena with Drapery Enclosure – Perfect for your Wedding Reception
Curl Mesabi is excited to now include a drapery enclosure in the arena during the rental season…valued at upwards of $5,000 if a decorator puts it up…is now included in the rental fee – available mid-April to September.

Draping includes the ceiling and three floor to ceiling wall enclosures. This draped area, (about 15,000 sq ft) easily accommodates up to 500 people while still allowing room for many other setups that are part of a wedding reception and similar events – including the Curl Mesabi bar area, dance floor, food area and specialty tables. Smaller groups will also be very comfortable in this space.
