Founded in 2015 by the Whaley Family, the Willow Ballroom at the River Road Exchange is located on the gorgeous, Sacramento Delta. The Willow Ballroom is about 15 miles south of downtown Sacramento in the town of Hood, CA. Our story began over the last hundred years when the River Road Exchange was home to a bustling fruit shipping and processing facility. Connected to the major metropolis by water (the greater Sacramento River) via steamer ships, the goods were transferred to and from the property directly onto rail cars.
Now repurposed into an event center, The Willow Ballroom is open and booking weddings, private events and much more! At approximately 11,000 square feet, the capacity is around 500 people, which makes it one of the largest venues in the Sacramento area. The exterior is urban with beautiful brick walls, and the interior has a vaulted, wood ceiling with exposed brick walls and cement pillars. The expansive interior exudes charm, texture, originality and character. A truly magnificent venue for all sorts of occasions. We hope you enjoy our site and come for a visit soon!
