Poplar Hall

Poplar Hall


WoodWorks' national award program celebrates innovation in wood building design. Poplar Hall, the event center at The RiverHeath Community in Appleton, was honored with a Regional Design Award.

As the fifth building to be built on the RiverHeath Development, the RiverHeath Event space is by far the most unique building to date, both in architecture and construction materials and the function of the space itself.

The new, free-standing 8,400 square-foot structure consists of glulam and cross-laminated timber framing to create a new event space for live entertainment, corporate events and a wide array of social, celebratory functions.

Although the building has a relatively small footprint, this space has a high density of amenities to cater to all its occupants. These amenities and features include 30' tall windows to the west for brilliant views of the Fox River and a decorative timber tread monument stair between floors.

» Two Full-Service Bars
» Full-Service Restaurants
» Two Indoor Fireplaces
» Green Room & Stage for Presentations
» Zamboni Garage + Ice Skating Rink Floor to Ceiling Windows
» Accommodates 395 Guests

A few of the beautiful sculptures didn’t survive the snow squall last night, but we snapped a few pictures beforehand. The dollar bill was sponsored by Nicolet Bank - Appleton - Nicolet Rd and the other sculpture was sponsored by Poplar Hall. Head to Downtown Appleton soon so you can see all of the sculptures before Mother Nature takes over again!

We had a blast playing at Poplar Hall last night to a pretty covid-safe crowd… down on the fox river in Appleton! Can’t wait to be able to play out more!!!
Sam & the boys had fun on their Wisconsin run this past weekend. We opened Poplar Hall in Appleton, it was somewhat difficult being the first band in, and promises to be an amazing venue for all of us to return to. Great to see those there that came to see us, thank you! Blue Ox Music Festival we’ve missed you too. Having to cancel in 2019 because Sam was sick and postpone in 2020 because the world was sick, was a wonderful & emotional homecoming to one of our yearly favorites. Thanks WISCONSIN!
