The Silo Event Center Ribbon Cutting

The Silo Event Center

Christian County Chamber of Commerce hosted a small but special event at The Silo Event Center recently, a ribbon cutting for The Silo itself.

“Ben and Maria Bolinger opened The Silo in April of 2016,” Event Manager Melanie Noffsinger said. “We recently opened a full service salon and bridal house on the property, with two full-time stylists, Katie and Tricia. It just felt like the right time for the ribbon cutting.”

The facility is Dutch barn inspired with lots of industrial touches, perfect for elegant or rustic events. It sits on 30 acres along Fort Campbell Boulevard, convenient to Hopkinsville and the Clarksville/Fort Campbell area.

“We can seat up to 400 guests in the main room, and there is another space for smaller groups of 70 or less,” Noffsinger said. “We've done military balls, corporate dinners, fundraisers, chamber events, and lots of weddings.

“A lot of the ceremonies take place on our spacious back lawn, and then the couple makes a grand entrance through the giant barn doors that open into the 8,000 square foot main space.”

The Silo already has bookings into 2019. Brides from 15 states will be coming from as far away as Florida, and California.
