Chef Dave Heide is no stranger to the food scene, he’s the owner and head Chef at Liliana’s in Fitchburg. I’ve had the pleasure of working with him before when he prepared a fabulous, creepy, crawly, bug buffet at Madison Children’s Museum Sustainability Sideshow fundraiser. At Charlie’s on Main, Chef Heide’s second restaurant, they won’t be serving up bugs, but instead focus on farm to table menus that are personalized for every event.

Just 20 minutes from downtown Madison, Charlie’s on Main in Oregon just may be the unique wedding venue you’ve been looking for. This beautiful space is available for a full wedding (ceremony, dinner as well as dancing), holds up to 150 people, includes two floors with stairs along with a bridal suite. With a charming vintage feel, Charlie’s on Main has a unique décor with many doors and windows recycled from the Capitol building. (You didn’t hear it from me, but word on the street is that there is speakeasy in the lower level that is open to the public. Might be just perfect for a bachelor party!)

Charlie’s on Main already has some fantastic partnerships including, Celebrations Entertainment and Simply Glamorous Designs Oregon Floral. This space is full of personality, with well experienced staff and chefs who know how to create the perfect atmosphere for dinner, as well as your event.
