About SteamPlant Event Center

Romance on the River

The SteamPlant Event Center is a stylish, urban wedding venue in downtown Salida, Colo. The renovated 1887 steam power plant retains its architectural beauty while exuding a chic atmosphere. For dining and receptions, the venue offers a spacious ballroom with century-old, exposed brick walls, natural hardwood floors and 30-foot ceilings. It seats up to 220 guests, has full banquet facilities and overlooks a picturesque outdoor cobblestone plaza and the Arkansas River. On warm evenings, many wedding receptions extend onto the plaza for drinks, dining and dancing under a canopy of stars. The grounds additionally include a 200-seat theater, several art galleries and boutique convention space with fully equipped conference rooms. Each is linked by a cobblestone walkway that stretches to the banks of the river and is surrounded by stunning views of the Rocky Mountains. Our on-site wedding coordinator has the expertise, taste and energy to create a custom event for any occasion, from small down-home affairs to elegant extravaganzas.

Our cobblestone plaza, on the banks of the Arkansas River, is our most popular ceremony site. The urban SteamPlant façade provides an interesting contrast to a natural backdrop of rushing water and cottonwood trees. Many brides make use of the adjacent Riverside Park, which is a short walk away. It is also nestled on the Arkansas River banks and guarded by an arsenal of century old-cottonwood trees. For more traditional ceremonies, downtown Salida’s historic churches are popular. Given the SteamPlant’s central location, many brides enjoy parading by bike or foot from the later ceremony sites to the SteamPlant. If bad weather arises, we can accommodate your wedding ceremony in our theater, ballroom or conference center.

    I am so glad we had our wedding reception here! I wanted a barn wedding or something with character. The lights and the character of the Steam Plant were perfect. Everyone here was great to work with. I was coming from out of town and Shannon made it easy to communicate via phone and email in preparation. She thought of things I didn't think of when I met with her a month before the wedding. In the end it was perfect. It was beautiful and we had so much fun! I got so many comments about how good it was and what a cool place the Steam Plant was for the reception!

    The SteamPlant in Salida is an awesome venue with a theater, event spaces and great outdoor space right on the Arkansas River and in the middle of down town. Beatrice and Shannon were amazing to work with, both detail oriented, professional, friendly and on top of everything! My client was extremely happy with the whole experience from planning to execution. Thanks ladies for making our job easy!
