Mazel Tov! Celebrating a Bar or Bat Mitzvah is an important moment for children and their parents alike. In commemorating a young person’s coming of age, the reception should provide lasting memories as your child progresses into Jewish Adulthood. Our setting, banquet hall, and events staff make Great River one of the top Bar and Bat Mitzvah venues in Connecticut.
Planning a Bar or Bat Mitzvah party is an event in and of itself. While the day centers around the guest of honor, consideration must be made for all who will be attending. Adults can retreat to Monty’s or our outdoor patio for a cocktail hour. Children and teens can take advantage of our spacious ballroom for any games or activities you may be planning.
