About

Riverside Events is a premier wedding venue situated in Boulder, Colorado. This historic site dates back to the year 1914.

Now, located near Boulder Creek, couples can enjoy their ceremony and reception right near the downtown area.

    Great spot for our holiday party!

    We had our holiday party at the Riverside this year and it was a great success! We had about 160 people and everyone enjoyed the space and loved the ambiance.  We fit well in the main large room and it was nice to have the other two smaller rooms for more intimate conversations. The food was fantastic and the party assistants at Riverside were great too! I was taken very well care of every step of the way. For decor, I simply brought in about 12 dz strings of 100 white lights which they strung up for me that afternoon and brought in several flower arrangements from next door and the place looked great! We've had small off-site meetings there as well and are always well taken care of. Did I  mention the food was great!

    We cannot say enough good things about this venue and the staff! I was an incredibly unorganized bride, and Sara was so patient and helpful each step of the way. She was super responsive and helped think of so many little things to make day-of operations go more smoothly for my husband and I. We really felt like the staff did an incredible job working the event, and kept us and the immediate family very well taken care of. They made plates of food for us to make sure we got to eat, set aside a small two-person table with champagne and appetizers for a post-ceremony pre-reception quite minute, and had our drink orders down so well that I don't think either of us personally visited the bar. The venue was perfect for our late afternoon - evening ceremony and reception; we absolutely loved the string lights on the balcony and the fire pit was a nice touch as well. We got a ton of compliments from our guests on the space; the red brick and open lighting really does wonders.

    I cannot say enough great things about The Riverside and all of it's staff! I was part of a group that recently held a charity event there and it is an incredible venue in the middle of Boulder with a huge patio overhanging the creek. The layout was perfect as far as space for dancing, a bar, eating and tables. The staff was so attentive and nice. Truly made the night so much more enjoyable! Sound and lighting was great! Parking was easy. This venue is awesome and I would recommend it to groups of all sizes!!
