Our holiday party at the Summit Events Center was great! The food was wonderful and the room was beautiful. We had everything we needed to make our party what we wanted it to be.

The Summit Conference and Event Center has multiple offerings to choose from.  The Summit can provide freshly prepared catering or you are welcome to bring in your own catering (we refer to this as outside catering).  Below are some details about these two main options.

The Summit Catering Option

Here is what is included in The Summit catering option:
Ballroom set up by Summit staff (this includes tables, chairs, tablecloths)
Skirted Tables (for instance – Buffet Table, Cake Table, Registration Table)
China, Flatware and Glassware, Cloth Napkins
Risers for use by your DJ, Band or Head Table
Bartender service for your cash or host bar 
Event Manager and Summit servers
Mirrored Tiles and Votive Candle Centerpieces
Ballroom clean up by Summit staff (after your event is over, you get to go home and we clean up)
7 hours total time on Saturday nights, 6 hours total time on all other nights

Some other items that we can include for an additional fee are:
Table Overlays – many different colors  - $5.00+ per table (no outside rentals allowed).
Chair Covers – many different color sashes - $4.00+ per chair (no outside rentals allowed).
Full Length Tablecloths - $18.00+ per table – many different colors

Please note that outside alcohol is not permissible.  The Summit Conference and Event Center does have a liquor license and we offer a full assortment at our bar.  You can choose to have a cash bar or host bar or a combination of the two.

Our Outside Catering Option

Do you have a favorite caterer you have already worked with?  Or is your uncle a skilled chef who wants to do your meal for your event? The Summit Conference and Event Center is gives you the option of bringing in your own catering.  We are one of the very few Denver venues that do not require licensed Denver caterers and we do not have a list of approved caterers.

When you do choose this option, we charge a room rental fee.  The rate mainly depends on how many guests you expect and time of year (which tells us how much space and staff you will be needing).  Ask our sales staff for a customized quote.

Here is what is included in our self-catering option:
Ballroom set up by Summit staff (this includes tables, chairs, tablecloths)
Skirted Tables (for instance – Head Table, Cake Table, Buffet Table, Gift Table)
Risers for use by your DJ, Band or Head Table
Bartender service for your cash or host bar 
Event Manager
Mirrored Tiles and Votive Candle Centerpieces
Ballroom clean up by Summit staff (after your reception is over, you get to go home and we clean up)
7 hours total time on Saturday nights, 6 hours total time on all other nights
Use of The Summit kitchen to warm your food or keep food cold (no food preparation allowed on site)
Available Ice

Some other items that we can include for an additional fee are:
China Rental – we rent our china at self-catered functions for $.60 per piece.  You can create your own place settings using the pieces that you need.  When you rent our china, Summit staff sets your tables and then we also provide bussing staff.
Table Overlays – many different colors  - $5.00+ per table (no outside rentals allowed).
Chair Covers – many different color sashes - $4.00+ per chair (no outside rentals allowed).
Full Length Tablecloths – many different colors - $18.00+ per table

Self-catering is a great option if you already know who will be preparing your food.  If you are undecided, we would be happy to give you pricing to use The Summit catering as well so that you can compare the two choices.  We think we offer some of the best Denver catering around at very reasonable prices!

Please note that outside alcohol is not permissible.  The Summit Conference and Event Center does have a liquor license and we offer a full assortment at our bar.  You can choose to have a cash bar or host bar or a combination of the two.
