Venue Spotlight – Winter Park Events Center – Now Open


Dynamic. Modern. Expansive. 

Dubsdread Catering was on hand for the Grand Premier Gala of the Winter Park Events Center on December 10, 2021, with a cocktail-style event and open tours to showcase the spaces to sponsors, donors, and city officials. Drinks and appetizers were provided throughout the venue and Dubsdread Catering served two appetizers: a Shrimp Cocktail Steamroller and a House Made Sous Vide Bacon with Brussel Sprouts, Sweet Potato Puree, and Maple Fluid Gel over a Southern-Style Biscuit, to the more than 200 guests in attendance.

Officially opened on January 1, 2022, the Winter Park Events Center (WPEC) features distinguished details you won’t find anywhere else. WPEC boasts unique gathering spaces with expansive views and is another beautiful, historic Winter Park location in the heart of Central Florida.
