  • I went with my fiancé to check out the place in its natural state. We immediately loved it. So I figured I would set up a meeting with them. I called the sales manager, and as soon as she picked up the phone she quickly said I’ll call you back. She never did. A couple days later I got a text message from her. I promptly texted her to see when her availability was to set up a meeting. She told me that following Thursday. A couple days later she canceled on me. I asked when we could reschedule. She said she needed her planner so she could give me an exact time, and said she would text me later that day. I didn’t hear from her until the next week. She apologized saying she couldn’t remember my number. So I gave her my availability, once again, and again I haven’t heard from her, and still haven’t heard anything from her. All in all I would not recommend the Rust belt.

    Hey Alex, Client correspondence is extremely important to us as a venue and we always try to get clients in as soon as possible for tours. I had to cancel our original meeting due to a last minute event booking and you were only seeking evening tours which book a few weeks out. The call you mentioned was on the weekend when we had two weddings back to back and I was on site and didn't have a calendar in hand when you called. All new clients contacting me through text aren't programmed contacts in my phone so it can easily become confusing. We would never want a client to feel they weren't able to come in when they are interested in our venue and I am more than happy to set up a time to meet with you. It looks like I text you on Sunday and never heard back but please feel free to contact me if you have a change of heart!

  • From the beginning of our planning process, Christina and the Rust Belt team were fully on board to having a New Year's Eve wedding and everything that entailed. Their list of preferred vendors was super helpful in choosing vendors who were familiar with the space and could work to blend our vision with their services. We toured several different venues and looked at even more online, and The Rust Belt was always one of our top choices. The atmosphere is incredibly intimate and needed little in the way of decoration to make the space feel like "us". Our guests raved about how cool and different the space was! Their bar packages were also super affordable and easily amendable for any budget. Christina and her team truly went above and beyond to make our day perfect, and I would recommend anyone considering the Rust Belt to just book it!

  • The Rust Belt was the perfect venue for our wedding! The decor is gorgeous and we only needed to provide minimal table decorations to make the space look amazing. It's located in downtown Ferndale, so there are tons of great photo locations and bars to keep the party going once the reception is over. Parking isn't free, however you can pre-pay for guest parking through the city if that's a huge concern. We did that and it worked out perfectly. Christina was amazing and very responsive to any questions/issues we had, and the bartenders on staff at our wedding were great. We highly recommend using this gorgeous venue!

  • We hosted our annual company holiday party at The Rust Belt and we were very pleased. The space itself is gorgeous on it's own and Christina was awesome and very easy to work with. We got so many compliments on how unique and comfortable the space was. Thanks again Christina!

  • My experience with The Rust Belt Market was perfect. This venue is unique, beautiful & so easy to work with. The service was great, and I highly recommend using Holiday Market - who is one of their preferred catering vendors. If you are looking for a setting out of the ordinary, this is the place for you.

  • We couldn't have picked a better venue and group to work with for our wedding day. The Rust Belt is a unique venue for any event. The decor they have there is so special and you really don't have a lot to do outside of what the venue already offers. Although you have to essentially bring everything in for your event they have a great list of preferred vendors you can work with to get your day put together. Christina was a pleasure to work with and made the process really easily. We highly recommend using this unique space for your wedding!

  • If you want everyone who attends your wedding or event to tell you that they have never been to a nicer or more unique venue, then book the Rust Belt Market. The look has a funky, rustic look, and the price is well within reason. The staff and management are helpful, friendly and willing to offer helpful suggestions if you ask. I am still fielding compliments from my friends and family about the venue, close to a week later.

  • We are coming up on a month since our wedding at the Rust Belt and are still randomly hearing great reviews from our friends and family who had an amazing time there! The occasion brought in many newcomers to the area and they were so impressed with how singularly beautiful the space is. We partnered well with Christina, the events manager, who was extremely patient and responsive as we worked clumsily through all the details. She really made things easy, and everything we discussed went smoothly on the day. Michael was a wonderful bartender and helped us concoct our signature bride and groom cocktails before the big day. We heard many compliments about his easy going but attentive service as well. I would not hesitate to recommend the Rust Belt and its solid team to anyone wanting to throw a party that everyone will remember!

  • We hosted our company holiday party at the Rust Belt in December. It was an awesome experience! Our guests loved the venue and enjoyed being able to use the Rusty Bucks to shop. Christina did a fantastic job helping us plan our event. She was extremely patient with us and all of our questions and requests. All of the staff were excellent. Many of our employees have asked me if we can have more events there in the future. We will definitely consider it! Highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for an affordable, fun space for their party. My only regret is forgetting my camera at home and not being able to get more photos. Cost below includes our premium bar package and Rusty Bucks for our guests.

  • What a wonderful venue and a wonderful staff they have running it. If you’re looking to think outside the box for your wedding venue then this is the place. No boring banquet hall like all the other. Just a beautiful unique space to host your event. I would 10/10 recommend to anyone.

  • My fiance and I live in Ferndale, so we loved the idea of having our reception there and showing our guests our city. The Rust Belt was great! All of our guests loved the unique space and the shops being open for the first hour. We chose the bar package that included two custom cocktails and they were delicious!

  • The Rustbelt Market was the perfect venue for both our ceremony and reception. It was a pleasure working with Christina. She was always responsive and very helpful in answering any questions that we had. Overall, the experience was a breeze and relatively stress free. An upside of this venue: the gathering space, for the most part, is already decorated! The couch cove is a unique place to take pictures. You can get away with minimal DIY decorations (save money). Additionally, they have an in-house bar (with a cocktail hour offering) and an table and chair rental. Instead of having to search for separate vendors to come in, these services are offered by the venue itself. We would highly recommend this space to anyone looking to have a memorable day.

    Thank you Ian! You guys were an absolutely joy to work with! We appreciate you sharing with others about our in-house options and Preferred Vendors list. The companies we work with make planning your day stress free and fun. Thanks again for sharing your special day with us!

  • Our daughter and her husband had their wedding at Rust Belt Market. The venue was perfect for them. Christrine was very good to work with. The guests enjoyed visiting the Marketplace before the ceremony. Holiday Market was the vendor of choice. Although there were a couple of things during the planning process, the night of the wedding went very well and guests raved about the food. The staff from Holiday Market was friendly and polite that evening. It would have been nice to get the evening started a little earlier because it went by way too fast! Overall, we are very pleased that our daughter and her husband chose Rust Belt and we would not hesitate to recommend them to anyonw.
