Booking the Venue

The Jerome is conveniently located in downtown Delano, close to major highways, restaurants, shops, hotels, parks, and several more attractions. Near Minneapolis suburbs, our venue is just 20 minutes west of 394 and 494. Our address is 125 Bridge Avenue East, Delano, MN 55328.

No, we only host one event at a time.

All rentals are available from 9:00 am to 12:00 am. Our hours are set by the city, so we are unable to add any time to allow your event to go later into the evening. Guests, personal items, and vendors must be out of the venue by midnight. If you want to keep the party going, Brickside Grille & Tap and Dave’s Town Club are just down the block and are a great option for an after party.

As an all-inclusive wedding venue, our rental fee includes tables, tablecloths, crossback chairs, complimentary Day-Of-Wedding Coordinator, complimentary centerpieces, professional security during events where alcohol is served, free parking, professional cleaning services, and liability insurance.

Except for rentals in March, The Jerome has all the modern amenities, including central heating and air conditioning, to make for a comfortable year-round experience.

Tours are scheduled by appointment only. Please contact us to schedule a private tour.

Please call us at 763-292-4200 or e-mail info@thejeromedelano.com. A signed Rental Contract Agreement along with a deposit for one half of the rental fee will reserve the date for you. The remaining balance is due no later than 120 days prior to the event. A $500 damage deposit is required 30 days prior to the event and will be refunded, provided there is no damage. We accept cash, checks and Venmo. 

A signed cancellation agreement is required. All deposits and balances paid are non-refundable.
