The Heidrick Ag History Museum and Event Center excitedly announces the addition of a fourth rental facility, the East Wing, now available for event rental and tours. With a temperature controlled floating space of up to 45,000 square feet, 16’ by 16’ roll-up doors, an onsite full-scale commercial kitchen, and 30-foot tall ceilings, the non-profit event and cultural destination facility can comfortably accommodate the most populous events. Provide your dignitaries a grand entrance into the event seated in a Model A, or maybe even a 1925 fire engine, through an edifice adorn by treasures of California’s rich artifacts. The venue is now available for trade shows, large-scale conferences, and personal special events, with customized accommodations to make every booking completely unique.

With four unique event spaces available including a large banquet hall, unique agricultural equipment museum, beautifully manicured garden courtyard, the Heidrick Ag History Center has been Yolo County’s premiere event venue for nearly 20 years, hosting a range of events from conferences and corporate parties, to weddings and quinceaneras and personal parties.

“Little do most folks know about the treasures that line our walls.” explained Executive Director Lorili Ostman, “Alongside our rare tractors, our collections include classic cars, a vintage airplane, army vehicles, and more, ranging from barn fresh to meticulously restored artifacts.”

Clients looking for a venue outside of the standard four-white walls can host their guests in a stress-free affair, with attention to detail and superior service, alongside an array of amenities available onsite.

“By hosting events here, our clients can incorporate our lovely collections into their theme, photos, and event atmosphere,” she added.

The Heidrick Ag History and Event Center is conveniently located just off of Interstate 5 in Woodland, only eight miles from the Sacramento International Airport. The addition of the East Wing has given Woodland the opportunity to become an event destination, with the facility already booked for a variety of events in 2015, including the Yolo Outdoor Expo in March, as well as the Last Call Car Show in October.

The Heidrick Ag History Museum has been working to cultivate an appreciation of the rich agricultural history, not only in Yolo and its surrounding counties, but throughout California, since founding in 1982, expanding the museum into a banquet facility in 1997. This expansion has worked to manifest a community relationship, as the home of the rarest collection of tractors in the nation.

The museum winter hours are Wednesday-Sunday, 10 a.m.- 4 p.m., with docent tours available. Call 530-666-9700 to make special arrangements for larger groups. Visit www.aghistory.org for more information, and search “Heidrick” on social media sites such as Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest.
