Weddings and Anniversaries
The Helendorf is ideal for weddings and anniversaries! Quite simply, there is no site more picturesque for making or renewing vows than on our Riverside Terrace overlooking the banks of the pristine Chattahoochee River.
(We recently held a 50th wedding anniversary for over 250 people in our banquet hall, heralded as a huge success! As our gift to the happy couple—especially given the size of their party—we provided our facility free of charge.)
Every June, the Helendorf hosts the Yaarab Shriners Helen Summerfest Ceremonial—culminating in a Grand Parade of both newly inducted and long-standing members.
The Helendorf takes pride in supporting charities like the Shriners and other community groups. Recently we were honored to host “Newborns in Need”, an organization that makes handmade items for infants. In fact, “Newborns in Need” used our banquet hall to set up their sewing machines and sew—making wonderful clothes for those in need.
The Knights of Columbus are regulars on the Helendorf property, hosting fund-raisers and Fasching parties.
Auto and Motorcycle Rally’s
No matter the season, the Helendorf is always playing host to auto enthusiasts and motoring adventurers, including:
With ample parking for all guests and a large lower parking lot for display parking, the Helendorf is driven to satisfy!
