The Brakefield Celebrates 3 Years with Expansion

Nestled atop a wooded bluff overlooking the Catawba, Riverwalk’s premier event hosting venue, the Brakefield, celebrated three years of special occasions this Spring.



From weddings, receptions and anniversary celebrations, to family reunions, cocktail parties and corporate retreats, the Brakefield offers the convenience of hosting your event in a single, stunning location.

The Brakefield’s old-world European warmth and unique architectural design invokes a feeling of home while sophisticated décor gives the venue a slight medieval feel throughout.

The nearly 3,000 sf Grand Hall is perfect for grand receptions or more formal corporate events. During the warmer months, extend your event outdoors — from the Grand Hall, French doors lead to the 1,200 sf covered Loggia, offering scenic views while you enjoy more intimate gatherings.


This past June, The Brakefield added an exciting addition to the  property. The Carriage House is geared to the corporate and civic communities in the region and includes a beautifully appointed room accommodating 35-50 guests.A relaxing spot to encourage great ideas and impress your guests, the space boasts a stone fireplace, full A/V compliment and a large deck overlooking more than 180 degrees of riverfront amid a canopy of trees. For small weddings, the venue is available Monday through Thursday and weekends when the main room is not rented and the event is 2 months or less away.

The breathtaking grounds at Brakefield include a back lawn and lush landscape overlooking the beautiful Catawba River and Carolina Thread Trail. This portion of the trail in North and South Carolina runs alongside two and a quarter miles of scenic river for amazing photographic opportunities.
