Red rocks, majestic mesas, and blue skies make a perfect backdrop for your special event.
With reliably dry, warm weather throughout the spring and summer, an outdoor celebration and or ceremony can be handled with ease. Our resort has spacious and elegant facilities – both indoors and out – that can accommodate large and small groups and weddings.
Mission Bell Amphitheater
Gateway Canyons is a magical place, and the Mission Bell Amphitheater provides a stunning Colorado wedding venue with a wide, covered tiered stage and outdoor seating, opening to our spectacular red rock canyon backdrop. It’s the ideal location for a outdoor Western Colorado wedding.
Palisade Event Center
Just steps away from the Mission Bell Amphitheater is the Palisade Event Center with Grand Hall and Sunset Atrium, which allows seating for as many as 200 guests and plenty of room for your wedding reception. This is our largest wedding venue, and can be arranged for a casual reception or formal, grand affair.
