With fall around the corner, it’s a perfect time to start planning your next reunion. Columbia County has perfect locations for any kind of get together, from military groups to annual family reunions, either indoors or out!  We’re only a short drive from Augusta and Fort Gordon, but our variety of reunion locations make you feel like you’re really getting away from it all.

Columbia County Amphitheater

Treat yourself and your guests to a venue that is inspired by ancient Greek and Roman architecture. The Columbia County Amphitheater (CCA) has reservable venues that ensure your group will have a place to call your own. At the same time, kids will love the playground, adjacent Columbia County Library and everyone will appreciate the views. 

Savannah Rapids Pavilion

The Pavilion at Savannah Rapids Park is a gorgeous backdrop that serves smaller groups and large parties alike. There’s plenty of options for any kind of event—from small rooms to larger areas with kitchen access, to historic headgates buildings and picnic pavilions. While you’re on the grounds, wander over to the Lockkeeper’s Cottage where you’ll find a selection of local products and deep insights into the history of the South. 

Evans Towne Center Park

Evans Towne Center Park is known for an incredible variety of events, from farmers markets to live music. But did you know, there are also pavilions available for rent? The Columbia County Amphitheater is technically just one of the variety of locations inside the expansive park grounds available for groups. Picnic Pavilions are perfect for setting up a potluck, grilling, and spending quality time together. Find your favorite and make it an annual family reunion tradition! 

Columbia County Exhibition Center

If a primarily indoor location would be best for your group, check out the Columbia County Exhibition Center (CCEC). The grand building offers 15,400 sq. ft. of trade show space and 2,175 sq. ft of meeting space. Since the CCEC can accommodate up to 950 guests for a banquet-style event, it would be the perfect place to impress any corporate audience.

Eubank Blanchard Community Center

Wedding parties and family reunions alike have gushed about their time at Eubank Blanchard. The intimate indoor space has seating for 75, while the outdoor pavilion is great for a more casual event where up to 28 can sit comfortably at the picnic tables. There’s a playground nearby to keep kids happy, and trails for a leisurely after-dinner stroll.

Pine Knoll Farms

One of the most gorgeous venues in Georgia, Pine Knoll Farms is family-owned and is an incredible escape from daily life. The grounds include cabins, barns, and even an open-air chapel—a Southern bride’s dream. If your family and friends have been seeking a place where you can all be together all weekend long, your search stops here.

Pointes West Army Resort

Getting an old unit together? Hosting a family weekend with your current squad? Pointes West Army Resort is the perfect place to get any military group together for some R&R. Cabins are available, or they’ve got hook-ups for RVs. Beach volleyball, horseshoes, time in the sun and water are just a few of the activities awaiting your group. It’s just a 30-minute drive from Fort Gordon or Augusta but promises to be a vacation you won’t soon forget.

Belair Conference Center

The Belair Conference Center is surrounded by nearly 1,000 hotel rooms. It’s wonderfully equipped for family reunions, wedding receptions, and more. Host a big birthday party in just a quarter of the space, or spread out and invite up to 400 guests to a military hail and farewell.
