Valley Dale Ballroom is a significant fixture as one of the nationally renowned Ballrooms of the “Big Band” musical era of the 1930’s and 1940’s. Many famous Big Bands and entertainers, including Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Bing Crosby, have appeared at the Valley Dale Ballroom. CBS and NBC even had simultaneous coast-to-coast radio broadcasts at the ballroom during the early 1940’s.
Although established in 1918, Valley Dale is far from being a remnant of the past. Valley Dale remains as one of the last few Great American Ballrooms from this era. While its admission into the National Register of Historic Places preserves its history, its recent extensive renovation secures its future.
Valley Dale Ballroom is a venue with endless possibilities. It can be used for weddings, corporate, philanthropic and other social events. As of 2015, the upscale event/catering company, Made From Scratch, has taken over operations of this iconic facility. You can count on the quality and professionalism associated with Made From Scratch at your event at the Valley Dale Ballroom.
Larry Clark, President of the facility’s new management team, Made From Scratch, explains: “The facility is one of the largest and most breathtaking in the city. Columbus and the surrounding areas are excited to see the doors of this beautiful ballroom open again. This is an exciting time for the Valley Dale Ballroom —we’re bringing light and life back through these remarkable doors and setting the stage for the next 100 years.”
