Rental Venue Spotlight: UMB Bank Amphitheater Tent

March 2, 2018 Special Events

With over a dozen unique venue spaces, most of which can be booked in any season, Denver Botanic Gardens hosts hundreds of private events each year. Most of our venues are tucked in corners around our 23 acres, but one of the most versatile sits right at the heart of the Gardens: the UMB Bank Amphitheater Tent.

A vast canopy with a spacious interior, the UMB Bank Amphitheater Tent is our largest single rental space, offering endless flexibility for hosting a variety of events. It is a beautiful venue for daytime or nighttime events and features twinkle lights across the ceiling and open-air sides that can be opened or closed as needed.

The tent has the ability to host groups of different sizes ranging from a seated reception for 600 guests, a ceremony or graduation for 1,200 guests, or a cocktail reception for 1,200 people. Smaller-scale events can also use the tent for multiple functions; clients can easily host both a wedding ceremony and a reception under the tent without resetting any furnishings between them.

Guests can mingle during a cocktail hour or can enjoy al fresco dining surrounded by views of the Gardens in their peak. Add in acoustic music, delicious food prepared by one of our preferred caterers and your own decorative touch, and this space will transform your event into a truly breathtaking experience for your guests. Whether you are hosting a wedding, a corporate event, a non-profit fundraiser or gala, the UMB Bank Amphitheater may just be the venue you are looking for.

JR Butler Company BBQ

We are looking for a location for our company BBQ this year. The event consists of Smokehouse BBQ hosting, a free raffle to our employees, ice cream table, volleyball and other yard games (possibly a bouncy house?). We would also play a little music through speakers but nothing crazy or loud. Headcount would be around 200.
Please let me know if this is all possible with you guys.
