About The Blaisdell
This beautiful Georgian mansion featured in the heart of Washburn-Fair Oaks Historic District in South Minneapolis was built in 1915, and has been a part of the Minneapolis bridal community since the 1930s. The ballroom was an addition in the 1950s, and new renovations began in 2016 and were officially completed and opened under new management in May of 2017.
Vaulted ceilings and magnificent staircases mark this manor as an awe-inspiring wedding venue. The warm and inviting facility features soaring 18-foot ceilings, skylights, a traditional front parlor, a subterranean lounge, and a custom bar for weddings, conferences, and corporate galas. Throughout the manor, the capacity is 600, with the ballroom accommodating a maximum of 300 guests.

Kaira Tabor | Venue Manager
Kaira is the lady behind the details. Once you’ve booked an event with The Blaisdell, she will help you fine tune all of the moving pieces and be there to make sure everything is executed flawlessly as the venue coordinator. She loves the new modern yet classic look throughout the building that is easily complimented by the bright and natural light in the parlor and suite.
She may be a small town girl from rural western Wisconsin, but she takes advantage of Minneapolis by finding new restaurants and new spots with her friends and family. If she has the opportunity, she will pack up and go on an adventure or stay at home and cuddle with her cat.
