About the Pavilion

Whether it’s a birthday, wedding, or retirement party, the Pavilion at Central Park is the perfect venue for your special occasion.  Located on the historic grounds of Denver’s former Stapleton International Airport, the Pavilion is available year-round and features a large main room with soaring windows and magnificent views of both Central Park and the Rocky Mountains. 

This indoor room can accommodate 50 people and includes tables, chairs, and a staging kitchen.  In fair weather months, the Pavilion’s two outdoor patios can increase capacity to 75, allowing you to take your party outside to enjoy Colorado’s beautiful warm days or cool peaceful nights.  An on-site event facilitator is available by appointment to show this facility, and will also be present on your special day to manage the facility for you.

Only one event is permitted per day.
