ABOUT

THE HIGH WIND

Special Events, Birthdays, and Wedding Venue

There’s nothing like these West Texas skies, and nobody knows it better than us. Our event space was initially created to house a family member’s wedding. We decided to design our own wedding venue so we could incorporate the exact details we desired. Something very important to us was versatility. We wanted a space that could be decorated and transformed to fit any event perfectly. The open floorplan was another feature we wanted to have in a wedding venue so that we could comfortably host a DJ, set out tables and chairs, and still have room for anyone who wanted to dance.

Amarillo is the biggest city in the Texas Panhandle and the 14th most populous city in its state. The town lies in the central region of the panhandle and is known for its proximity to Palo Duro Canyon State Park, the second-largest canyon in the United States.

There are several fascinating museums in the area dedicated to various features and historical objects of the Texas Panhandle. These include the American Quarter Horse Association, the world’s largest breed registry, the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum, and the Amarillo Museum of Art.

As a hub for the oil and gas industry and a major agricultural center, the city is home to the headquarters of several major production companies, including Tyson Foods and Cattle Feeders. The town also has a strong sense of community and is notable for its friendly residents and fairly laid-back way of life.
