Town Preparing to Unveil New Estes Park Events Complex
ESTES PARK, Colo. (January 2014)
– The Town of Estes Park has been working for months on the new addition to their event facilities. Dubbing the former fairgrounds as the Estes Park Events Complex, Town staff is preparing to unveil the new Estes Park Event Center and Pavilion (formerly known as the Multi-Purpose Event Center, or MPEC, and stall barn). The new facilities are expected to open in May and will add large-scale, indoor event space to the barns and outdoor arenas currently offered, making the Estes Park Events Complex much more versatile.
The new Estes Park Event Center is a 33,000 square-foot facility that will accommodate large events from expos and conventions to indoor festivals and sporting events. Complete with concession capability, in-house catering services, meeting rooms and available rental equipment the new building offers new opportunities to the Town’s events department and area event planners.
“When you enter the Event Center, the Grand Lobby will welcome you with beautiful mountain décor,” said Karen Lynch, Marketing & Sales Manager for the Town of Estes Park. “Beyond the lobby are large picture windows that offer an impressive view of the 28,000 square-foot Multi-Purpose Event Hall below.”
The adjacent Pavilion building also offers flexible space, and is 19,000 square feet. The two new buildings will complement each other, as well as the current fairgrounds facilities and the Estes Park Conference Center. Both existing and new events will be able to utilize the new buildings, and planners have already begun booking events. Having expanded indoor event options will allow for additional year-round events and celebrations, helping to sustain Estes Park as a year-round travel destination.
“The two new buildings truly open the door to new markets, year-round entertainment and unique celebrations,” said Lynch. “With a well-rounded, dynamic events complex like this, the possibilities seem endless — we expect it will draw new guests to Estes Park through all seasons.”
The Town of Estes Park broke ground on June 6th, 2013. Despite the floods, both buildings are expected to be open by the end of May, less than a year later. The Event Center and Pavilion were funded by the Town of Estes Park and are being built by Dohn Construction Company at a cost of seven million dollars.
