About Us

The Opal Grand Forks is a wedding banquet hall that is located in Grand Forks, North Dakota. This stunning establishment features elegant decor and refurbished hardwood floors that come from historic origins. The Opal Grand Forks was originally Simonson's Lumber warehouse. Furthering the historic significance of the building, the name is derived from Opal Kunz, an accomplished female pioneer in the aviation industry. Opal had received her pilot license in 1929, and in 1930 she won a flying competition against a group of male pilots. Some of her achievements include the organizing of the Betsy Ross Air Corps and becoming a chartered member of the woman's pilot organization, the Ninety-Nines.

The Opal Grand Forks is able to accommodate 300 guests as a seated banquet. The head table will be placed in front of a stunning marble wall, creating an ideal focus in the front of the room. Venue rental includes tables and chairs, as well as the use of their outdoor patio space. The indoor hall boasts rustic elements such as a wood floor and exposed beams. The large, open windows allow light to pour in, highlighting the entire space in a welcoming and ethereal glow.
