We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding venue! We’re still hearing from our friends and families about how amazing it was. The Powerhouse staff were a pleasure to work with at every stage of planning our big day. Its location can’t be beat, off of the Animas River in downtown Durango.  What a unique and fun space.  Thank you!
