Welcome to 417’s Event Planning Guide. This guide is full of local venues and vendors to help answer the question “Where do I even start?” when thinking about your next event. We’ve been planning events for a while now, so we know a few things about what works and what doesn’t in 417-land. Whether you’re planning a bridal shower, a birthday party, a corporate event, a fundraiser or something else, there are local venues and vendors that fit the bill and are here to help.
We put this together for you, the readers. We have an exhaustive list of venues so you can find a place that feels right. We have a directory that gives you an idea of the prices and options available in Springfield, Branson and beyond. And we have preferred resources so you can find caterers, entertainers and vendors you trust.
So the next time you’re tasked with planning an event no one will forget, use this guide to help. No detail will go overlooked, and you can smile with pride when guests ask you, “How did you pull this off?”—Rose Marthis
