We are all in search of the perfect venue whether you’re getting married, planning a special event, or work in the event industry. A venue that has just the right amount of space for a nice sized group, a beautiful indoor/outdoor area, and PARKING (oh, how we love convenient parking). It can sometimes be difficult to come across such a trio within a reasonable price range… until now. The transformation of a schoolhouse has become a gorgeous new venue in West Michigan! District 5 Schoolhouse, located in Zeeland, between Holland and Grand Rapids, is a wonderful space that we are excited to share with you. This venue provides a versatile environment for any type of event. Whether you’re planning a wedding, baby shower, brunch, or family party you will want to consider this location!


Indoor and Outdoor Ability

Everyone loves a good variety and this venue provides just that. District 5 allows clients to create a unique event with their many areas available for set up. Love the idea of having an on-site outdoor ceremony? They have you covered! Do you want everything outdoors? They can do that too. Oh, and the dreadful idea that it may rain? Don’t worry, this venue can also accommodate your indoor ceremony.

District 5 Schoolhouse provides a beautiful canvas in the form of a venue that can be created to the liking of each client.

The Chalkboards

The most unique, and probably our favorite, aspect of this venue are the chalkboards. As a schoolhouse, the venue kept the original blackboards in the space. These are available for use to decorate for whatever you’d like. We have seen GORGEOUS designs done on these chalkboards. Anything from welcome signs to menu boards, these chalkboards can bring style and an element that is unique to the couple. And if you aren’t comfortable decorating your own chalkboards, there are many talented vendors that you can hire to style and create a wonderful design!
