The Northfield Ballroom was built in 1981 by Bernard Hughes. As a longtime fixture in the local community, Mr. Hughes saw the need for the growing area to have a place for weddings, graduation parties, dances, and other celebrations. Thus the Northfield Ballroom was born.

Today it serves the community of Northfield and surrounding areas as a bar, restaurant, and banquet facility. The Northfield Ballroom is the proud host for dozens of weddings, birthdays, and other events throughout the year; as well as being a local favorite for lunch and the Minnesota staple: the Friday Night Fish Fry.

The Northfield Ballroom is currently owned and operated by George and Eva Damian and their family.
