Butterfly Pavilion




The Butterfly Pavilion is a gorgeous and versatile event venue, located just 15 minutes from downtown Denver. Still, this enchanting venue feels like a world away. From a lush rainforest with 1,600 free flying exotic butterflies and an amphitheater next to a trickling creek, to a spacious ballroom and open patio overlooking a soft palette of colorful annuals, there are many beautiful and unique locations for your ceremony and reception. Declare your love in a romantic outdoor ceremony. While you explore the center and pose for your formal portraits guests can enjoy cocktails and appetizers on the open patio. Reunite with your guests in the beautiful ballroom. Indulge in a delicious meal and then dance the night away. Treat your guests to a butterfly release in honor of your nuptials. For an additional cost, butterflies are presented in a decorative container and released by you or your guests. The dedicated staff of the events department will be more than happy to help you with all the details of your special day.
