A Right of Passage
A part of Latin and Hispanic culture, a Quinceañera is a celebration of a girl’s 15th birthday. In fact, the Spanish word, Quinceañera, means 15-year-old, with the feminine form indicating that it’s a girl. This is an important celebration in a girl’s life, functioning as a transition period between girlhood and womanhood.
We’ve celebrated quite a few of these festive occasions with families all over the area. Our beautiful and historic setting is a perfect place to usher your little girl into the wider world of maturity.
A Magical Setting
Have your celebration by the scenic Canal for an event and pictures that are truly magical.
This is a popular option for outdoor Quinceañera celebrations. You can enjoy your non-alcoholic refreshments under one of the shelters with plenty of picnic tables for your feast. There’s also plenty of lawn area for children to spread out and play.
If you’d like a portion of your festivities indoors, or perhaps have the meal and cake inside, our Conference Center is set up for just this kind of occasion. We have a sound system with capacity to play music, tables and chairs for up to 300 celebrators to help make your day a special one.
The goal of every Quinceañera is to celebrate in grand style! What better way than to have your princess join the party on a Canal Boat? You can also have rides for family members to enjoy the day on the water together.
Canal Era Gardens
All the beautiful flowers, plants, and herbs set the stage for a lovely day, and your Quinceañera celebration is no exception. Take a stroll around the grounds of our peaceful park and take it all in.
