The event spaces at the Owyhee building are up and running again – with new management and a new name: Agape Event Center at the Historic Owyhee.

Bettina Debenham is owner and wedding planner for the venue. She founded Agape Ceremonies and Events in Eagle in 2014, with the addition of the Owyhee space this past March.

She says she’s excited about the opportunity.

“We are in a prime location in downtown Boise,” Debenham said. “The venue is newly remodeled and beautiful. Thus, being both practical and beautiful we expect this space being filled very frequently with for all of the above events listed above and more.”

The Owyhee has three ballroom spaces that can be operated separately, or as one large room.

“We are open for all types of events and venue needs. This includes, but is not limited to, business meetings, lectures, weddings, receptions, dinner parties, holiday parties, tea parties, whatever parties.”

Debenham says they offer a full-service environment for clients – including wedding and event planners.

As part of the initial revamp of the Owyhee in 2013, the capacity for the event spaces was expanded from a capacity of 220 to 350 people.
