Frequently Asked Questions

What is FoxView?

FoxView is ten acres of natural surroundings with a 6,000 square foot venue for the community to rent for private parties or public events. In most areas, this is referred to as a "community hall" except in our case FoxView is more than simply a hall. In addition to the Ballroom, our Lodge and Michigan's Smallest Church is also available to rent for any occasion or function, as are the ten acres of property surrounding it.


Can I get married at FoxView?

Yes, you can get married here, or host your reception, indoors or out. The Ballroom is capable of hosting 300 guests. The Lodge can host up to 65 guests. Michigan's Smallest Church can fit 10 guests plus the minister inside or provide a scenic backdrop for any religious ceremony outdoors. Other areas on the property can accommodate small or large weddings, or car shows, or even hot air balloon festivals!

What other kinds of events can people rent the FoxView facility for?

The list could be endless, but FoxView can accommodate a birthday party, anniversary party, family or class reunion, and even a car show, quilt show, or art exhibit. Our outdoor acreage is perfect for summer concerts, flea markets or even motorcycle rallies. If you'd like to attract an audience from Grand Rapids, Marshall, Battle Creek, Lansing, Ionia and of course Nashville, Hastings, Charlotte, Bellevue, or Vermontville, FoxView is centrally located within a 30-minute radius from each of these locations.


What's up with the instructional classes and even a Zombie Zoo?

Between dates booked by the general public, FoxView also hosts public activities and entertainment, including the Drive-Thru Zombie Zoo during Halloween or the popular Drive-Thru Santa Circus for a Christmas activity. In addition to outdoor events, our Ballroom has been used for events as varied as Pirate School, a Comic-Con, and Licensed to Carry a Concealed Weapon Classes.


Is alcohol allowed, or does FoxView have a liquor license?

To keep costs low for bridal couples, FoxView does not have a premise liquor license, allowing private parties to provide any choices of alcohol they want. If so, all alcohol must be provided by you and offered without any fee to your guests. During an event of 30 or more people, it must be served by a licensed bartender who has successfully completed MLCC-approved training, and who is covered by liquor liability insurance. We can recommend licensed bartenders from our Recommended Vendor List who can serve your guests the alcohol you provide.


Alcohol service must end one hour prior to the conclusion of your event. Shots, Shotgunning and Keg Stands are not permitted. Tip jars are allowed if that's your choice.Call us for more details if you're planning an event for under 30 people.


Is it true FoxView can customize an event or party for other people?

Yes, we can help plan your next group activity or family get-together! We can assist in creating an all-day event or evening activity for any size family, school, or group. Past requests have included carnivals, fundraisers, 5k runs, silent and live auctions, magic shows, and multiple festivals you can see in our Past Events.
