Ouray has hosted conferences and/or events for groups from five to 500 people. There are two meeting rooms available.
The San Juan Room
The San Juan Room is a warm and inviting room, which offers many windows and wood floors. It has hosted many wedding receptions, birthday parties, meetings, and retreats. It also offers a small kitchen area suitable for a light meal and beverage set-up. We offer a variety of tables, folding chairs, linens, as well as audio/visual equipment, so the room can be set up to your specifications. The room can accommodate up to 150 people so it is a perfect location for an intimate gathering.
The Massard Room
The Massard Room is the largest of the rooms at the Ouray Convention & Community Center. It is the perfect size room to host larger events as it can accommodate over 300 people. Over the years, it has hosted numerous wedding receptions, dances, school functions, community presentations, political debates, and non-profit fundraisers. It is a very versatile room with many options for your event. There is a fully equipped commercial kitchen in the Massard Room with convenient serving areas for food and beverages. We offer a variety of tables, folding chairs, linens, as well as audio/visual equipment, so the room can be set up to your specifications.
Liquor, wine or beer cannot be sold or given away at a public event without first applying for a Special Event Permit. Such a permit can also be obtained from City Deputy Clerk/Treasurer, at 970-325-7064. It is important that you plan ahead since this process takes a minimum of six (6) weeks for approval from the State Licensing Board.
The catering kitchen is located in the Massard Room. It is a fully equipped commercial-grade kitchen that is certified by the Department of Health. Caterers can prepare and serve food on-site which makes hosting events that much easier. The kitchen is stocked with enough place settings to feed up to 300 people.
