Red Mesa Events: A Historic Downtown St. Pete Wedding Venue with a Modern Twist

When we think of downtown St. Pete, we think of character, charm, and uniqueness, which is the embodiment of St. Petersburg wedding venue Red Mesa Events.

The event venue, originally the home of downtown St. Pete’s first fire station, was fully restored in 2017, while still preserving the original features of the historic building.

The three-story wedding venue features multiple wedding spaces: an open-air courtyard restaurant, Red Mesa Cantina, perfect for rehearsal dinners or bridal showers, a renovated ballroom, open-air bar & lounge, and a rooftop deck, featuring stunning views of downtown St. Pete.
