Special Event Reviews

Best place to hold your next event! I started working with Gary in 2019 to hold my 2020 wedding. It took a lot of work because it took place during the Covid, but it couldn’t have gone more perfect. No matter what vision I had he was accommodating & supportive. I had the most memorable experience! Thank you Gary & Mishawaka staff. ~Fort Collins, CO

Great place to have a corporate event! We planned a fishing excursion on the La Poudre River after a team meeting in Fort Collins. After our excursion we enjoyed a relaxing and fun outdoor dinner at the Mishawaka complete with campfire s’mores and beautiful views. It was a great environment to relax and bond with our team members who came to Colorado from all over the world. ~Boise, ID

Best Venue Ever! The natural beauty of this venue is absolutely amazing. If you’re imagining a classic Colorado mountain aesthetic, this is your place. Gary and his whole crew went above and beyond to ensure that our day was exactly what wanted. The amount of care, effort, and attention to detail from the team was truly remarkable. Could not have hoped for a better experience. ~Timnath, CO

Amazing event space and service! My company had our 10 year anniversary party at The Mishawaka and we were blown away by the service they offered. The event planning staff was informative, prompt, and made the planning process a breeze. The day of, they went above and beyond to make sure all needs were met, and that everyone was having a great time. We ordered a large spread from their catering menu and all left happy and satisfied. The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous, definitely the most beautiful place we’ve ever had the pleasure of hosting an event. I can’t say enough good things about our whole experience, and highly recommend you book your next event at The Mishawaka Amphitheater. Huge thanks to The Mish team for everything! ~Larry

Dream Venue, Great Food, Wonderful Staff! We had our wedding at the Mish and it was the best decision we could have made!! The beauty speaks for itself, but the river and the mountains serve as a dream venue for the ceremony and for photos! The food was affordable and delicious, we got many compliments from guests and there are many choices! Gary and the entire staff was great to work with from start to finish. The day-of staff was extremely friendly at the food and drink stations with many of our guests commenting on the great service! Plus, if you’re thinking band look no further…! No better place as everything is already in place! The cherry on top is the affordability, not only was it everything we were looking for but it helped our budget so we could afford to do some of our dream elements! Would recommend a million times over! Thanks Gary & Mish Crew! ~Littleton, CO

We chose the Mishawaka to have our wedding and it was nothing short of impressive. The staff was attentive and always ready to help with anything we could need. During the planning stage Gary the event coordinator was awesome! Every question was answered quickly and with several meetings throughout Gary helped us get every detail planned perfectly. If you are thinking about using the mish for your event ABSOLUTELY DO IT! This place is magical and you couldn’t ask for a better staff to take care of your special day! ~Bob

The Mishawaka was the best decision we made in terms of planning our wedding. Gary, the event coordinator, is laid back which is a relief among the stress of wedding planning. This venue is naturally beautiful and allows for a lot of flexibility in what you are thinking of doing! ~Tish

My husband and I got married here on October 1st, 2020. Aside from the venue itself being a dream, the surrounding nature was breathtaking. The staff paid attention to the minor details and made the day go off without a hitch (except us, haha). That said, this is a wonderful place to get married and we wouldn’t have chosen anywhere else. ~Isabella
