Have your Blacksburg, VA wedding at Southpaw! 

We are a collectively run community space in the New River Valley with a working kitchen and funky aesthetic. We also offer a sliding scale or the option to trade volunteer hours or share other skills in exchange for using the space for your next event. 

We are currently booking through June 2024. 

Honestly we thought this would be a nice way to raise more money for our mutual aid work. We also thought it would be fun to be the cheapest wedding venue in the New River Valley. 

Features include: 

  • cute cozy aesthetic 
  • elevator access 
  • gender neutral restrooms 
  • surround sound audio 
  • PA system and microphones
  • tables and chairs 
  • capacity up to 50 people 
  • ample parking
  • available drinks packages 
  • awesome radical literature for your guests to read 
  • knowing that your wedding budget is going to a local nonprofit and will be used to build community in Blacksburg 

We are happy to provide a list of cool DJ's and photographers, and other local vendors who do great work.
