REALLY great experience!, An Eventective User from Fort Collins, CO

We loved having our wedding at the Mish. First, it's an absolutely beautiful location. It is extremely convenient to have a venue that can also provide the food and bar aspects without worrying about caterers. We had live music, so the Mish was also perfect for that. Gary and the staff were responsive and easy to work with, it was extremely affordable (and pricing was easily able to be tweaked according to preference and budget) and we had a lovely experience overall. Highly recommend!


Non-Profit Slideshow/ Fundraiser, An Eventective User from Fort Collins, Colorado

The NCCC held climbing their guidebook release celebration on 10/25/18 from 6-10pm. This event consisted of live music, climbing slideshows, sponsor & silent auction tables, outdoor obstacles, and a live raffle. We worked with Gary Duvall to coordinate the rental of the Indoor Dancehall, AV system (including sound person), catered appetizers, and propane heaters & fire pits. Gary and the Mishawaka were very accommodating and made sure we were aware of all the Mish had to offer and was open to discuss any out-of-the-ordinary requests we had. We met with Gary in person twice before the event to discuss details, coordinate payments and sign the contract. He was always on time and his response time to email was always within an hour. We were all on the same page from day one up until the event ended (and even got out of there 30 minutes earlier than expected). The event was a success with over 200 people showing up on a cold fall Thursday evening. The tables and other equipment were ready for us when we arrived for set up, the appetizers were set out right on time, and the AV and sound system worked perfectly as well as the heaters & fire pits. The staff at the Mishawaka during the event were also very friendly and glad to help when we needed anything. Gary even checked back in with us after the event and we are now looking into making this an annual event! The only downsides to the venue (on the event planning side) are: (1) the absence of cell service/ WiFi, and (2) if you are renting the Indoor Dancehall, the main restrooms and backporch entrances are located inside this room so it's difficult to make this space 100% private. The Mishawaka is one of my favorite venues in Northern Colorado and I would recommend it for any event, large or small. The building itself has a very casual atmosphere but with the right decor, it could easily be turned into an upscale rustic wedding location.

We loved having our wedding at the Mish. First, it's an absolutely beautiful location. It is extremely convenient to have a venue that can also provide the food and bar aspects without worrying about separate caterers. We had live music, so the Mish was perfect for that. Gary and the staff were responsive and easy to work with, it was VERY affordable (and pricing was easily able to be tweaked according to preference and budget) and we had a lovely experience overall.
