"Our wedding day at Homer Striker Field was unforgettable. The venue offered everything we needed and more. The field provided a lush backdrop for our ceremony, and the white pole tent was beautiful and romantic for our reception, especially when the sun went down.  The staff was excellent. They helped plan and provide food and beverage, coordinated with our other vendors, and even offered ideas and expertise on details we may not have thought of on our own. I’m filled with joy every time I look at photographs from our wedding; not because it was the wedding I had always imagined, because it was a wedding I couldn’t have imagined.  The Growlers helped create a day that was a beautiful memory for us and an experience our guests will never forget."

"We got married at Homer Stryker Field in September of 2017 and had an absolutely fantastic experience! We were only the second wedding they have ever hosted, yet they bent over backwards to accommodate our every need. The staff was friendly, helpful and seemed genuinely excited to help in the planning phase. The food was awesome, not just your standard ball park hot dogs and burgers. Really good stuff, from the appetizers down to the main course. We had a tent set up in center field, complete with a dance floor and fun yard games to entertain the guests. All of this and it was very reasonable priced! I would highly recommended this venue to any couple that loves baseball. It's a unique, fun venue with an awesome staff that will make sure your day is truly unforgettable. Ours certainly was! Go Growlers! ."
