About the SteamPlant Event Center


The SteamPlant Event Center, located in the heart of scenic Salida, Colorado, hosts over 500 events each year, from private weddings to conferences, community meetings, concerts, conventions, and more. Originally built in 1887 to house the Salida Edison Electric Light Company, the historic building was purchased exactly a century later by the City of Salida. The SteamPlant is a vibrant, thriving part of our community that includes a theater venue, outdoor sculpture garden, art galleries, riverside plaza, conference rooms, and a spacious ballroom.
