For many people finding the perfect Kansas City event space can be a difficult task.  In some cases the perfect outdoor venue might do, but what if it the weather doesn’t permit?  Event planning is generally high stress for those in the decision making process.  There are a myriad of variables to consider when choosing an appropriate place for your function.  Major points to consider are: Location, Size, Lodging, Activities, Hospitality, Dining, Aesthetic, Value.


For some people an event space is about function and for others the priority lies in providing a completely unique experience for their guests.  At the Circle S Ranch, located 15 minutes north of the East Lawrence exit on I-70, event planners can find a special blend of all event necessities.  Owner Mary Cronemeyer has synthesized the ultimate event space and situated it in authentic rural setting.  The Circle S Ranch is as much of an ideal event space as it is a getaway destination.  Although it is situated on 2000 acres of pristine rollings hills, meadows and pastures, the city of Lawrence is still accessible if need be.  The ranch has multiple indoor spaces that can accommodate groups from 20-200+.  If you want to take your event outside, the Kansas City event space has a variety of  open natural spaces including a prairie garden which has been home to many weddings.

The ranch is a perfect place for corporate retreats and team building.  Bed and breakfast guests can stay in their choice of custom styled rooms and can enjoy many activities including horse back riding and fishing.  After a long day of meetings and exploring the countryside guests can treat themselves to a massage or a glass of wine in the sauna.

There truly is no better way to start a Kansas morning than by sipping coffee on the ranch’s massive porch, while you watch buffalo and long horn steer graze the surrounding pastures.  Kids will also feel right at home and unlike many other event spaces they are free to run around and explore.  Kids will be sure to love riding ponies or searching for newborn kittens in the barn.

Mary and her incredible staff are entirely flexible and open to ideas for events of all kinds.  If you have any inquires about having the Circle S Ranch host your event check out the link below.

This is an absolute treat that we highly recommend!
