 Cedar Creek East is home to the award-winning Smokin’ Willies BBQ.  Wayland, Tania, and their crew are serving up delicious weekly meals and amazing specials that are a treat to all our diners.  Smokin’ Willies is also available for on or off-site catering.


Cedar Creek Hall is a family owned and operated business established in 2018 in Galesburg, Illinois.  Owners, Bobby and Patti Wedell, along with their daughter Nicole Sanchez, Manager/Event Hostess, and members of the family have extensively created the perfect place to host any event for your memorable occasion.  From the moment you walk in you are welcomed as friend and guest.  Which is why, “Where Friends and Family Gather” has been their personal motto from the very first day.  

Nicole has had extensive experience as Event Hostess and will be there to help you in the planning of your special event.  Her knowledge and customization of each event will be extended to every aspect of your occasion.  Nicole is always researching event planning updates and keeping abreast of what is new and exciting in the wedding industry.  As wife and mother, she is very much aware of the scheduling that goes into planning and will work with your schedule to plan the event of your dreams.


Cedar Creek Hall can comfortably seat up to 350 guests but is also able to give you the intimate feeling for smaller events.  With its private antique bar and knowledgeable bar staff available for your event you will experience the exclusivity you desire.  Tables, chairs, linens, projection screens, podium, guest Wi-Fi and a large parking area are just a few of the amenities that are available to you and your guests. 

Cedar Creek Hall has also set the stage for the Wedding Reception of your dreams.  Nicole as your Event Hostess will walk you thru their Wedding Packages that can be designed to your specific needs.  The immaculate West event hall features an expansive dance floor, your choice of chandeliers and the perfect area for your entrance.  They can provide a list of licensed caterers, the option of providing your own meals or you may take advantage of Smokin’ Willies BBQ located on site.  Cedar Creek Hall also has extensive rentals, linens, tableware and lighting plus so much more that is available to all our guests to create a memorable event not to be forgotten.  Their beautiful, picture worthy Bridal Suite is perfect for Brides and their party to prepare and relax before the big event.
