Beautiful Bat & Bar Mitzvah Venues

Proudly serving Westport, Orange, New Haven, Stamford, Norwalk, Fairfield, CT & Surrounding Areas

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 bat or bar mitzvah venues in Westport, Orange, Fairfield, New Haven, Stamford, Norwalk, CT, and beyond.

Planning a bat or bar mitzvah party is an event in and of itself. While the day centers around the guest of honor, consideration must be taken for all who will be attending. When you celebrate in our private event space, 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.
