The best company Christmas party ever!! - An Eventective User

We arrived with everything ready. Not as many showed up as expected but those that did had nothing but praise. The buffet was yummy and prepared just right. Then into the theater for the Christmas performance, sing alone, all very entertaining and well worth the price. Thank you Desert Star!!

So Much Fun for an Employee Event - An Eventective User

We held our year-end event at Desert Star with a banquet and a show. Employees loved it and now we have great memories to share with each other.

Perfect for a Large Group Birthday Party - An Eventective User from Sandy, Utah

I chose to host my husband's 60th Birthday at Desert Star. They were so accommodating, organized, and helpful when planning the party. I was allowed to go in a head of time to decorate, and the tables were already set up just the way we discussed. They had plenty of staff on hand, and all our guest were served drinks quickly. The staff was very friendly to us and all our guests. The appetizers and buffet were delicious! We had a wonderful time and many of our guests said they would definitely consider holding an event at Desert Star. (Also there was plenty of parking even with two shows and our party all on the same night.)
