For more than 125 years, Chautauqua has been THE choice for weddings. Choose an indoor or outdoor venue, each with its own distinctive character, history and architectural features. Our experienced staff will work closely with you from start to finish to ensure your occasion is extraordinary.

Community House


The Community House, known as Chautauqua’s “living room,” was built in 1918. Today, it is host to spectacular ceremonies and receptions of all sizes throughout the year. The main room, known as the Grand Assembly, occupies the main floor and features hardwood floors, a fireplace, a grand piano, and a large covered porch. One level below, the rustic Rocky Mountain Climbers’ Club, with its original stone walls and fireplace, is perfect for a cocktail hour. The Meadows Room is a quiet space appropriate for a kid’s room or catering staging.

Missions House Lodge


Perfect for smaller weddings, up to 16 members of your wedding party can enjoy both privacy and connection in this 1911 Arts and Crafts style gem. Missions House Lodge features eight en-suite bedrooms, kitchen facilities, an elegant covered porch and soaring dining and reception areas. Booking Missions House Lodge will ensure your wedding is one for the history books. ADA accessible.

Mary H. Galey Cottage


Located on the Enchanted Mesa Trail, the Mary H. Galey Cottage is perfect for petite weddings, getting ready or wedding party lodging. You will appreciate the flexible layout, expansive views from the lower and upper decks, and catering-grade kitchen. The cottage is accessible, sleeps up to 12 and can host up to 24 people. The Mary H. Galey Cottage also serves as a Green Room for your favorite musicians, including the Indigo Girls, Herbie Hancock  and The Gipsy Kings.

Ceremony Site

Make your ceremony breathtaking with our outdoor site. Say “I do” under the bright Colorado sky and with a view of the stunning, treelined Bluebell and Mcclintock trails. This venue can also be booked in conjunction with the Mary H. Galey cottage for a seamless getting ready or petite reception space, just steps away from your ceremony.


Chautauqua Green


Located directly in front of the Dining Hall, this expansive 10-acre, grassy space accommodates large groups and offers unobstructed views of the Flatirons. The Chautauqua Green, owned and operated by the City of Boulder Parks and Recreation Department, was originally pastureland and later served as buggy and automobile parking before it was plowed and seeded in 1910.
