Welcome to The Platte Valley
The Platte Valley Community center is located in the heart of rustic, beautiful Saratoga, Wyoming. We serve the entire North Platte River Valley. PVCC provides space for gatherings of all sorts, and we know that when you're planning an event, you want to make it memorable. We'll see to it that it is!
You'll find the Community Center is the perfect place to host your next event: The Center has plenty of room for art shows, wedding receptions, and performing arts that need a quality auditorium with comfortable seating and splendid acoustics.
We also welcome meetings and formal presentations and have a variety of services and spaces to accommodate anything you plan.
Lodging and dining are available in several venues around town. And the great outdoors is just waiting for you to come and enjoy!
A Message from Executive Director, Joe Elder
"Good things happen when people get together. This building is a testament to people getting together and creating something. Whether it’s for fun, for business, to sell an idea, to get married or to remember someone, I enjoy matching the many capabilities of Platte Valley Community Center with peoples’ wants and needs.
It is rewarding to help people that live here find the right space to work, play, learn, teach and make art. I also enjoy helping to bring people to this Valley so they can experience the things that connect me to this place: the people, the schools, the businesses, the year-round outdoor recreation and the open spaces."
We are located in Saratoga, Wyoming, in the heart of the Upper North Platte River Valley - also known as "The Good Times Valley." The past and the present come together here, with endless opportunities for outdoor recreation, cultural and historical events, and just plain fun. Come see what good times you can have and what great memories you can make.
The Upper North Platte River Valley lies in between the Snowy Range and Sierra Madre Mountain Range in southern Wyoming, and is spread along the confluence of the Encampment River and Upper North Platte River. Outdoor enthusiasts enjoy blue ribbon trout fishing, scenic floats, and miles of hiking, mountain biking, ATV, snowmobiling and skiing trails.
We're within walking distance to a variety of services in Saratoga and just a short drive from Encampment, so you can spend a night or a weekend comfortably when you come to an event at the PVCC. Both communities boast excellent restaurants, comfortable hotels, motels and resorts, and several "must see" attractions.
