The Ridge Reveals New Additions to Event Space

It’s hard to believe it’s possible, but the Ridge Tahoe is now even better with $2 million of investments to improve its event space.

The Ridge recently upgraded the event and conference areas by 2,300 feet for a total of 3,700 square feet on site for weddings, corporate events and retreats. Already a top venue for weddings and other special events in one of the leading destinations for both, the Ridge’s new Castle Rock Event Space stands apart from other venues in Tahoe South.New event space - wedding

The new space for weddings allows for more guests and more fun.

Careful planning went into the renovations of the event space with design and functionality in mind. With the latest additions, the event space can accommodate an additional 100 guests for your wedding and also includes two more rooms for meetings. Meetings and retreat spaces can now host 120 people. You’ll never have to worry about cramped event spaces when you book your special event in the Castle Rock Event Space.

The square footage isn’t the only thing that will impress you about the Castle Rock Event Space: the details in the architecture display acute care and vision for tying the indoors to the resort’s natural surroundings with wood décor, 16-foot high ceilings and large windows that flood the space with ambient light. Many of the materials used in the Castle Rock Event Space were recycled and repurposed, another important element of the Tahoe lifestyle and attitude where eco-consciousness and sustainability prevail. Lori Amus, a local designer, planned the new area with the outside in mind. The rustic elements complement the surrounding trees and offers a seamless transition from outside to in, perfect for setting the tone at your wedding.

And it’s easy to understand why: every wedding includes a wedding coordination team that takes the pressure off the couple’s shoulders to ensure a seamless event including dining, dancing and more. The Castle Rock Event Space now accommodate up to 175 wedding guests. Create memories with the Ridge’s help. Packages are available.
