The 20-acre property offers stunning views of the Ashley River and marsh, an abundance of green spaces, centuries-old trees, and generous, on-site parking. While the property doesn’t offer water or restrooms, it is, in essence, a beautiful canvas for any event you can dream up.

Lisa Thomas of Ooh! Events, owner of the well-respected event and wedding production company, is now managing all bookings and event coordination for The BEND.

The Events Pavillion at The BEND

Designed by Reggie Gibson Architects, The Pavilion @ The BEND is an open-air structure and a beautiful marriage of form and function, highlighted by grand wood beams, steel, and a stunning corrugated metal butterfly roof. Concrete pavers form the flooring within The Pavilion and extend beyond the roofline toward the river.

The Pavilion accommodates from 350-seated guests to 600 standing guests – as well as entertainment. Commanding views of the Ashley River and marsh, an abundance of green space, grand trees, and generous, on-site parking make it an ideal space for everything from corporate events and concerts to festivals and fundraisers. Future additions include a riverfront dock and ceremony space.
