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!Sent on 11/21/2016

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!
