Crafting Events at Denver Botanic Gardens Chatfield Farms

By Denver Botanic Gardens

Nature itself is the most dramatic and memorable setting. Denver Botanic Gardens Chatfield Farms in Littleton is a remarkable venue with a variety of outdoor and indoor spaces that can accommodate any kind of event or celebration during year-round.

Just off state Route 470 and Wadsworth Boulevard, this slice of countryside is a refreshing escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Chatfield Farms is a historical homestead and working farm on 700 acres set against the stunning foothills of the Rocky Mountains. On this sprawling nature preserve, soaring cottonwoods brush the sky, paths cut through wooded areas, and Deer Creek meanders under footbridges.

Colorful gardens that highlight Colorado’s native plants splash texture and color among the landmark buildings. Wildflowers and the bright reds, shimmering purples, and lush greens of vegetables and herbs are a botanical palette painting the landscape.

There are multiple rental sites available to choose from at the plant refuge and farm. The Green Farm Barn is a charming, country-chic space that includes a patio strung with bistro lights, popular for dinner events. The Polly Steele Center, a quaint furnished house, is perfect for small gatherings. Deer Creek Stables features rustic chandeliers, barn doors that open to the amphitheater, and retractable walls for a flexible indoor/outdoor event space. Adjacent to the stables is Prairie Garden Terrace, a 1,600-square-foot hardwood terrace tucked under a canopy of trees and laced with twinkle lights. The Yurt is a cozy, fun space—think company wellness retreats or private yoga rentals. Enjoy a cocktail hour or tea party surrounded by thousands of fragrant plants at the Lavender Garden Pergola.

Popular events take place throughout the year at Chatfield Farms, and tickets to many of them can be added on to rentals. Guests can celebrate fall with Corn Maze or Pumpkin Festival and in December enjoy a magical winter wonderland at Trail of Lights, a glittering display of light and color.

Experience the beauty of Colorado’s nature and make any event unforgettable.
