“My best friend’s wedding was held at BlackRock Center for the Arts, and it was hands down, one of the best experiences I have ever had in my life. I was completely satisfied. And I have a collection of memories that will endure forever. Thank you so much.” – GS
“You and your staff truly made our [wedding] day so very special and if we could do it all over again, we’d choose BlackRock a million times over! It was PERFECT and you really helped our vision come to life. Your diligence, time sacrifice and flexibility made working with you such a pleasure and we can’t tell you enough how awesome you are.” — MB
“BlackRock was a fantastic venue for our wedding reception. My husband and I were nervous about it being upcounty since our ceremony was taking place in Silver Spring and most of our events would take place near Silver Spring, but everyone loved the space and found the drive incredibly worth it. We used the lobby for cocktail hour and were able to set up a projector to show a love story video. Overall the space is incredibly versatile, you make it whatever you want….” –ZM
"We’ve used BlackRock’s Grand Lobby and MainStage for Rodgers Consulting’s Annual Meetings and Holiday Receptions for more than 10 years. The MainStage theater provides a private setting for our annual corporate meeting presentation, and we’ve arranged the Grand Lobby in a variety of celebration settings – from cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at cafe tables to full-service seated dinners. BlackRock’s holiday decor with lights, garlands and live poinsettias provides a beautiful space and the bar and kitchen amenities make it easy for caterers to work their magic. We’ve been extremely impressed with the musicians BlackRock has been able to recommend from their teaching and performance contacts. There is no reason to consider any other venue for our holiday and corporate meeting needs." - Erin Burrows, Rodgers Consulting, Inc.
“The meeting space at BlackRock was ideal for a day-long board retreat. Our team was comfortable in the space, appreciative of the easy location and complimentary parking, and inspired by the private outdoor space accessible from the meeting room. The easy access to the I-270 corridor made it convenient for participants traveling from all regions of Montgomery County as well as the Washington, DC metro area. The daytime use made our retreat effective and the affordability allows us to consider an evening program as well." - Kim Jones, Executive Director, Nonprofit Village
