Private Events

Private Parties, Events & Weddings

Morning, noon, or night, the Oxbow is a dynamic choice for a variety of exclusive parties, events, and corporate functions. We feature highly unique and comfortable indoor spaces, as well as flexible urban outdoor spaces – environments that exude the kind of northern vibe you can’t find anywhere else in the region. We can host nightlife-driven revelries, site-wide celebrations, private corporate lunches, or anything you may have in mind.

We have full audio/visual capabilities, stages and specialty lighting, and quality sound. A range of set ups are possible accommodating both small and larger events. And if your group wants to also spend the night, our 30 boutique rooms, including 12 suites, offer a soft and cozy place to land.


Escape the confines of hum-drum meetings! The Oxbow Hotel and The Lakely make for a unique and upbeat base of operations while you’re in Eau Claire on business. Plan your next board meeting, training, think tank, or networking event with us; you’ll be glad you did, we promise. The Gallery is an aesthetically pleasing private room featuring natural light, exposed brick columns and regional artwork on the walls. A change of scenery might be just what your team needs to get their excitement and passion flowing!

Retreat like you mean it! Escape to our little piece of the Wisconsin Northwoods and unplug, (at least from the cubicle!), relax, refresh and repeat. Here, you’ll get a taste of what we mean when we say, “authentic Eau Claire.” You can enjoy exclusive use of our meeting space, The Gallery, for your group to gather; creature comforts in our boutique hotel rooms, access to our actively programed stage events, and personal assistance planning fun activities for everyone. Ready to adventure?
