Weddings at The Fort



August 27, 2020

Dear Fort Guests,

Thank you so much for your support and following the CDC requirements when you dined at the Fort this summer! Exciting NEWS for the FALL and WINTER!

I’ve decided we will open PRE-bookings for private dining parties limited to 44 people maximum. For your and our employee’s safety, we will seat your party immediately upon arrival in our pre-designated safe spaces tables. We’ll provide appetizers at served at each table. If the host would like to speak to guests, we will provide a microphone and the host, and guests, one by one, may address your group.

This procedure is to replace a mingling cocktail hour. For everyone’s safety and in compliance with the health department, we cannot allow mingling cocktail hours.

In lieu of a cocktail mingling hour, you may consider offering your guests a tour and history of The Fort and Bent’s Old Fort, of which our Fort is a replica. Trained educators in period dress will lead a group of up to ten people, masks required, on a 30-45 minute walking tour.  If you have forty guests, we will break your guests into four groups of ten and have different starting points of interest for the Tour, so everyone ends the tours at the same time, to be seated for your special party.

The Tours are organized by a Colorado non-profit 501 c 3 organization, Tesoro Cultural Center, ( founded in 1999. The cost of the tour is $10 per person, as a donation to Tesoro Cultural Center.  If you are interested, our Private Dining Manager will put you in touch with Tesoro’s Educational Director to organize the tours, before your party.

It is always required that all guests and host wear a mask, except when eating and drinking at your table.

We look forward to hosting your special event for fine dining at The Fort this fall and throughout the holidays!

Additionally, the new Fort Food Truck will be available for your Private luncheon or dinner at your home or workplace throughout the fall and winter.

Please call our Private Dining Manager at (303) 697-2282 today, as we expect to be booked throughout the season!

Thank you again for your support!
