UPDATE

We now know more about transition happening soon to close down The Hub and open another Avalon Events Center in Fargo. The Fargo Hub, located at 2525 9th Avenue South will close permanently on June 1.

Tom Poole, President of the Fargo based Avalon Management Group, who has owned and operated the downtown Avalon Events Center since its inception 15 years ago, has purchased the Hub and will be Owner and General Manager of both Avalon locations.

The Avalon Events Center in downtown will remain open and will be renamed The Avalon Downtown. The former Hub location will be renamed The Fargo Avalon. A one million dollar renovation project will begin on June 1 with an anticipated opening in the fall of 2014.

The new Fargo Avalon will host weddings and corporate events and will be able to accommodate anywhere from 50 to 2,000 guests in seven ballrooms. Poole says the facility will offer state-of-the-art audio/visual, sound and lights, including high speed teleconferencing capabilities in all banquet rooms.

The Avalon Event Center will continue to schedule concerts in its new Millennium Ballroom, formally known as The Venue. There will not be any public restaurants or bars in the new facility. All concert events that have been previously booked will take place and tickets will be honored.

Free shuttle service will be available to transport wedding parties from their respected hotels to churches, to the event center and back to their hotels. This transportation will also be made available for corporate customers. Wedding ceremonies will be available at both locations free of charge.

Banquet reservations are currently being taken by calling Tom Poole at 701 368-9540.
