About SteamPlant Event Center

The SteamPlant Event Center is a stylish, urban 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, events 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 events & wedding coordinators have the expertise, taste and energy to create a custom event for any occasion, from small down-home affairs, to boutique meetings and conferences to concerts and elegant extravaganzas.
