About Pier Spaces

Pier venues provide a unique and stunning backdrop for any event. With their stunning vistas of the waterfront and open-air atmosphere, they offer endless possibilities for creating a memorable celebration or gathering. The pier is typically constructed of wood or concrete and has an open walkway extending into the water, providing beautiful views of boats passing by and the surrounding skyline. Depending on the location, pier venues can be used for everything from weddings and receptions to corporate events, fundraisers, or festivals.

These venues come with various benefits that make them well-suited for hosting events. For example, their size allows them to accommodate large groups with room to spare. Additionally, these locations are often easy to access due to their proximity to local transportation hubs, making it simple for attendees to reach the event site. The open-air nature of pier venues also provides guests with plenty of fresh air and sunshine while protecting them from inclement weather due to overhead coverings available in some locations.

Another great feature offered by pier venues is flexibility in terms of design options; capable of being decorated in a variety of ways such as using colorful bunting or twinkling lights to create an enchanting ambiance. Numerous opportunities exist for those looking for something more formal, including furniture rentals and catering services available at some locations. Ultimately, pier venues provide a versatile, beautiful, practical set, making them ideal places for hosting all manner of events.

The Best Events for Pier Spaces

  • Summer Carnival
    A summer carnival is a great way to enjoy the pier. It can be filled with fun activities like face painting, bumper cars, and more. Guests can also indulge in classic carnival food such as cotton candy and hot dogs. There can be live music to create an even more festive atmosphere. To top it off, fireworks will light up the night sky for those special moments near the end of the event.
  • Beach Concert
    An outdoor beach concert is one of the best events for any pier location. The open-air and waterfront view creates a unique atmosphere that guests won’t forget soon. The stage setup should include props like backdrop banners, flags, and spotlights to brighten things up during night performances. There should also be space where people can set up tents or chairs to relax while listening to their favorite artist or band perform live right before their eyes.
  • Corporate Event
    A corporate event at a pier venue has the potential to be truly memorable. With so much outdoor space available, guests can mingle while enjoying drinks and delicious hors d’oeuvres during cocktail hours or networking sessions before parties begin late into the evening, with live DJs spinning tunes all night. This event also offers access to plenty of water activities, such as boat tours that take guests around the immediate area for some sightseeing and fun after dark.
  • Wedding Reception
    Pier venues are perfect for wedding receptions too. A romantic sunset backdrop provides breathtaking visuals for photos taken by professional photographers after traditional ceremonies have ended inside nearby churches or other venues. The bride and groom can greet their family and friends on the nearby dock with cocktails and appetizers before cutting into their tiered cake just before dinner. Afterward, it’s time to dance away beneath twinkling lights strung up along railings as fireworks explode across the starry sky above them.

What to Look for in Pier Spaces

  • Safety
    The pier should be secure and safe for guests. Investigate the condition of the pier to make sure it can accommodate your party size and type of equipment. Ensure the pier has good safety signs, railings, and other necessary safety measures.
  • Accessibility
    Consider accessibility requirements when choosing a pier venue. Ensure there is enough room to accommodate wheelchair users or other mobility-impaired guests. It is also important to determine if the pier has access points with ample parking to make it easy for all guests to reach their destination.
  • Amenities
    Consider what amenities the venue provides, such as audio/visual equipment, catering services, tables, chairs, etc., to ensure that all necessary items are accounted for before finalizing a selection. Check for the availability of electricity and internet connections at the pier to make your event or project run smoothly.
  • Location
    The location of the pier venue can make or break an event. Research the area and its surroundings to find a spot with enough activity and energy to keep your guests entertained throughout the night. Additionally, it’s essential to consider if any other nearby venues could be used in case of inclement weather.

How to Make Pier Events Better

  • Establish clear goals: Before planning any event, it is vital to have a set of objectives that will guide your decisions. For example, create an atmosphere encouraging attendees to mingle and socialize or have the party focus more on a particular activity. The goal should be achievable and measurable so that you can evaluate the event's success after it’s done.

  • Utilize the pier’s existing amenities: Many piers include bathrooms, seating areas, or even docks for boats and other water recreation activities. Make sure to take advantage of these pre-existing features when designing your event. Consider how people might interact during certain activities. Will there be enough seating for everyone? Is there enough docking space for boats?

  • Book the right entertainment: Whether you’re planning live music, comedians, or DJ sets, book performers who match your event’s vibe and energy levels. Quality equipment like speakers and lighting can also make all the difference in creating an energetic atmosphere that your guests will remember.

  • Manage safety precautions: Safety should always be a priority at any outdoor event, especially near bodies of water. Ensure proper lifeguard supervision if swimming is allowed, check your and your guest's gear for potential hazards like sharp edges or protruding metal pieces, ensure ground surfaces are slip-proof, and designate areas specifically designed for those who may become intoxicated throughout the night.

  • Prepare appropriately for weather conditions: Be aware of potential weather changes while hosting your event on a pier. Have backup plans depending on different types of weather, such as having shelters stored away in case it rains suddenly or some form of temperature regulation if it gets too hot outside during summer events.
