This scenic venue is the perfect spot to showcase Buffalo for social & corporate events groups ranging from 50 to 150 guests.   The historic building is situated in Olmsted’s magnificent Delaware Park, just off Lincoln Parkway.  It has been recently renovated with a keen eye on the designs of the original era.  The boathouse vibe exudes a casual, natural elegance, with exposed stone walls, and the surrounding ambiance of ‘The Park’.  We feature an indoor-outdoor experience, with a spectacular view overlooking Hoyt Lake, Albright Knox Art Gallery, and The Buffalo History Museum.

We hold weddings on the lower level, featuring the lovely Pan Am Room, which seats up to 162 guests for a plated dinner and comes with the adjoining, spacious, tented lower terrace, where guests can enjoy their cocktails with the view & and dance the night away.  You may host up to 200 guests for a modern stations-style party from May through October using both areas.  The maximum capacity in the off-season is 130 seated (to allow for bar space), and 200 for stations parties using both levels of the casino.


This is a wonderful place to have a wedding…with a comfortable space for dancing and drinks.  We had a wonderful time!


Loved the location of my wedding…it was so romantic with the water in the background, and I loved the outdoor tented area.  The Pan Am Room was updated with air conditioning and modern restrooms – a must for a summer wedding!  I loved the ambiance and everything about the place!


The crew was the best! We were so happy at how beautiful everything turned out! From the Rose Garden ceremony, to the cocktail hour on the tented terrace, dinner, and ending the night dancing back on the patio! The views from the Marcy are breathtaking, our guests were raving about how beautiful it is there and how awesome the food was! I would recommend this venue to anyone!

Magnolia Events was so wonderful to work with.  They executed our creative & culinary ideas to perfection and were a pleasure to work with! The food was excellent and the bartenders created specialty drinks for us –  score! The staff is the best – very organized, up front with us, and very accommodating!  We had a wonderful experience – – thanks so much Marcy Casino!


Our wedding at Delaware Park was perfect. The location is beautifully located on Hoyt Lake and is a great place for pictures. We got lucky and were married on 5/27, Sunday,  Memorial Day Weekend…Spring was in full bloom and the flowers looked amazing in the garden.  We were very happy with the location and our out of town guests were impressed with how beautiful it was as well.


How could someone not love this venue?! It embodies the best of Buffalo.  Being able to have indoor and outdoor options is amazing!  Cocktail hour on the terrace was perfection, I swoon over the exposed brick, the sunsets on a clear night are amazing and so many nooks for beautiful photos. We couldn’t of asked for a better location to celebrate our first day as a married couple.
