The Whatcom Museum offers unique and memorable settings for weddings, receptions, corporate celebrations, musical performances, or other gatherings.
Old City Hall, a Bellingham landmark since 1892, rises above the city with Victorian cupolas and clock tower. Its grand staircase and historical ambiance add warmth and character to all occasions. The Rotunda Room offers exceptional acoustics and an excellent piano.
The Lightcatcher building offers a contemporary setting with dramatic architectural interest. Named for its focal point and most innovative feature — a spectacular, translucent wall 37 feet high and 180 feet long — this modern facility captures and plays with the Northwest’s most precious natural resource: sunlight. Indoors or out, this location is one of a kind. The Lightcatcher courtyard and entry hall are also fun performance venues.
