Ridgecrest excels in designing custom banquets for a more intimate atmosphere. The event catering staff enjoys working with meeting planners to customize each banquet to meet specific needs.

A wonderful variety of delicious menu selections are available. Plated meals can be served or meeting planners may choose to use a traditional buffet style. Room and table decor can also be customized adding elegance to receptions, teas and other events.

Catered breaks and fellowships are also available to keep conferees refreshed throughout their event or meeting.

All Special catered events, including snack orders, educational/entertainment events, and recreation events must be scheduled through a member Event Coordination Department at 828.669.8022.
