When people think of Carlson Center, many things come to mind: Hockey, Basketball and Concerts to name a few, but the last thing they think of is Prime Rib and Halibut Florentine.

Well we are here to let you in on a little secret. The Carlson Center is well on its way to becoming one of the premier catering and event destinations of Interior Alaska. From wedding receptions of 100 to Military Banquets for 500, even conventions of 1200+, the Carlson Center is providing gourmet food and impeccable service to the people who know our little secret.

Our Catering Staff is focused first and foremost on Customer Service. From the start of your event to the finish, we will be there to guide you through the challenges of hosting a quality, unique event. Our Food and Beverage staff will focus on the details, from Event and menu development, all the way down to linen and lighting. With over 50 years of combined experience we will be there to help you with the tough decisions and make you the star of the event. We have sample menus available to get you started, but our Food and Beverage Director and Chef will work with you to select a signature menu in order to make your event as unique as you are. We can set up a wine tasting and use our network of professionals through the Savor…Catering group and NACE to get answers and ideas when we don't have them here in the center. The whole idea is to be there to take care of your needs as a guest here in the building. We have full service AV, sound and tech support on hand in order to make your presentation the talk of the town.

Now some events don't fit at the Carlson Center and we understand that. We also understand that you have to start somewhere. Our food and beverage team will sit down and help you get the ball rolling, if it looks like we are not the right fit we will get you pointed in the right direction. In the end you will find the staff at the Carlson Center to be more than accommodating and truly invested in the success of your event.
