Beale Celebrations located in the heart of Kingman’s historic business
district with its neon trimmed facade, distinctive neon signage created by Legacy Signs, and turquoise color is not easily overlooked. Not even in a vibrant district where neon signage, microbreweries, wine bars, eclectic shops, and diverse restaurants manifest a renaissance in a once moribund neighborhood.
Beale Celebrations, however, is more than just a colorful landmark. It is opportunity made manifest, and a place to make memories.
So, let’s imagine you are planning a wedding reception, reunion, or graduation ceremony with up to 350 people. Can you think of a better location in Kingman? Ample space for tables and dancing, a room designed for caters to set up and serve from, and availability of a full multimedia system are but a few of the available amenities.
However, where Beale Celebrations really shines is when it is used in partnership with area hotels, restaurants that offer catering, and organizations or speakers. Beale Celebrations, and Kingman, are ideally situated for conferences and conventions. The city is located at the intersection of the I-40 and U.S. 93/I-11 corridor. A modern high speed highway connects Kingman with the international airport in Las Vegas 100 miles to the north. The city is located at the hub of a metropolitan network that includes Phoenix, Las Vegas, Tucson, the Los Angles metropolis, Albuquerque, Flagstaff, and even Salt Lake City. There is even direct access from Albuquerque, Kansas City, Chicago and Los Angeles via Amtrak.
Lodging in Kingman ranges from quaint b & b’s in the historic district to modern, quality hotels with business centers. To enhance a convention or conference, there are an array of day trips. As an example, sixty miles east of Kingman on scenic Route 66, Grand Canyon Caverns offers an array of specials for groups including a $20 lunch/caverns tour package. Also available are walking tours of the historic business district, with stops at a territorial era saloon and select locations, led by internationally acclaimed author and historian Jim Hinckley.
In 2014, the city hosted the Route 66 International Festival, an historic event that led to the development of the annual Miles of Possibility Conference event in Illinois, and the bi-annual European Route 66 Festival. In August of 2018, at the second European Route 66 Festival, there were discussions pertaining to the city again hosting an international festival. A focal point for the event, if it should take place will be Beale Celebrations. That is but one example of the importance the facility now plays in the historic district renaissance. It is also an example of how important Beale Celebrations can be to making Kingman a destination for dynamic business with vision.
Dare to dream. Dare to imagine. Beale Celebrations can meet all of your needs be it a reunion or political dinner, conference or convention. Beale Celebrations, and Kingman, at the crossroads of the past and future.
