The Delta Pointe

All-purpose event center for any occasion

The Delta Pointe Event Center in Boyle is a new venue for any event you may have coming up in your life: receptions, rehearsal dinners, meetings, birthday parties, family reunions baby or wedding showers or any other special occasion that may arise.

Tara Herrin and John Paul Gates are co-owners of Delta Pointe. Herrin also owns Catfish Cabin in Boyle and Gates owns Delta BBQ & Catering. Gates said they came together on this endeavor because they both are in the food service business and do a good amount of catering. 

“And, one thing that we kept running into was people not having a medium to event-sized venue that they could rent for functions,” he added. “Places were either too small or way too big and not cost effective. So, Tara owns the building right next to Catfish Cabin and it was Riley Roo’s Consignment Shop.  The decision was made to close Riley Roo’s and renovate the building to where it could be a very nice event center to be used for rehearsal dinners, wedding receptions, business meetings, training, family reunions, birthday parties, bridal or baby showers; just any type event a person might find themselves needing a venue for.”

Gates said they officially opened in December 2021 doing a sort of trial run with a supper club he belongs to.

“We wanted to see how we could set it up and how the flow of people there would work, and everything went really well,” he said. “So we started a Facebook page, publicizing the venue the next week. And we’ve had a really great response from the community and people calling to inquire about it and booking it for their events this year.”

As far as food and other amenities for someone’s event, Gates said they were a full-service event center.

“We will handle anything the client want us to, such as catering the food from Delta BBQ & Catering or Catfish Cabin. If they would like to have an outside caterer, there’s a small fee for that. We’re running a special through March 15, 2022. Regardless of when the event is this year, if they book before March 15, all tables and chairs are included in their rental. And, we’re very proud to partner with Delta Party Rental if people need decorators for their event or we can do it if they prefer. It’s strictly up to the client. We’re here to make people’s events easier and less stressful and a great success. We can do everything from start to finish or they can just rent the venue. It’s totally up to the client. Events are personal and we want the customer well-pleased.”

Gates said if anyone is interested in touring the building prior to booking it, they would be glad to show it to any potential clients. 

“We also have photos we can send them so they can judge if it’s the right venue for their needs,” he added. “Just contact Tara Herrin at Catfish Cabin if you’re interested. You can call 662-719-4958.”
