Durango Wedding Venues- Ridgewood Event Center

Ridgewood Events Center


“Since the very first event at Ridgewood, our own wedding, and years before there was even a building or plan, just that incredible view and 100 straw bales, we knew what a special spot nature had created. We look forward to sharing it with you.”

Alford Family Signature


The Ridgewood Event Center, with its mountain vistas, gardens, meadows, streams, and ponds, is a gorgeous location for your Durango wedding venue. Weddings, retreats, and other special events for up to 200 guests are our specialty.

Located in the scenic La Plata River Valley in southwestern Colorado. The Ridgewood is minutes from Durango, Cortez, and Mesa Verde National Park. It’s also a short drive from Farmington and Aztec, New Mexico, Chaco Canyon, and The Four Corners Monument.

The tall windows of the Ridgewood's stone and pine structure offer panoramic views of snow-capped mountains, lush green meadows, ponds, streams, 100-year-old cottonwoods, and acres of heirloom flower gardens.

The Ridgewood Event Center is open from April through November for your destination wedding, reception, reunion, meeting, or retreat. Let us help you make the planning easy and the day memorable.
