Flying W Ranch

Nestled in the foothills of Pikes Peak for more than 70 years, the Flying W Ranch provides guests with a wide variety of memorable venues for weddings, rehearsal luncheons, bridal showers, dinner parties, and wedding parties. The spectacular setting makes the perfect backdrop for your wedding day or rehearsal dinner.

Magnificent mountain views and dazzling sandstone rock formations line up against the unforgettable backdrop of Pikes Peak. Sky-high Ponderosa pines, brilliant bluebird skies, mighty red rocks, and spectacular rustic charm puts our venue a cut above the rest. With just one look, you’ll see why the Flying W Ranch is the perfect event venue for your special day.

Unforgettable Setting, Unforgettable Facilities

An authentic, secluded, and peaceful, family-owned and operated (since 1947) working Colorado cattle ranch with dramatic mountain views, immense red rocks, expansive ranch land, and century-old pines immerse you in an unforgettable and uniquely Colorado experience. Summer, spring, winter, or fall, whether you choose the stunning indoor vaulted ceiling of Saddle Hall with its rolling glass walls (exposing beautiful Colorado landscapes) or one of our matchless outdoor venues, your event will be private, peaceful, and secluded. 

Unforgettable Amenities

Your entrance on a white horse-drawn carriage, pulled by 18-hand jet-black Percheron horses, cannot be described.  Following the ceremony, you and the love of your life leave the wedding site, side by side in the carriage, glass of champagne in hand, and take a trip through rocks like those found in the Garden of the Gods.  The carriage ride will be cherished for a lifetime.  A fit-to-size dance floor, a 20′ x 12′ LED Wall (perfect for special, cherished videos and photos), live music, bridal and groom dressing areas. Miniature donkeys, horses, and endangered American Milking Devon Oxen can be incorporated into your special day. 

The Food, the Food, the Food!

Flying W is known for its succulent smoked meats: smoked brisket, smoked Berbere ¼ leg chicken, and smoked salmon. In addition, 12″ Kansas City bone-in strip steaks are a sweet spot for the Ranch.  Your requests are easily created by our culinary team. Appetizers such as duck terrine, dry-aged carpaccio with basil and aged Havarti, and assorted crostini, can be incorporated into your special days as well.  Our culinary team is creative and resourceful and is constantly looking to incorporate local ingredients and elements into our menus.

Praise for Our Events

John O.

We had an exceptional time at the Flying W! You won’t find a better dinner and Western show in Colorado, and I’ve yet to see a better dinner and stage performance anywhere else either. A wonderful time from start to finish. 

Michael F.

Wonderful family experience. The staff are great and have done a fantastic job of rebuilding the ranch after the fire approx 10 years ago. Variety of activities and animals to see before the dinner shoe, so give yourself time if interested.

Justin C.

We had a great time at Flying W Ranch! Be sure to show up when the gates open. There’s a lot to do before the dinner and show starts. The food was great, and plenty of it. The musicians are very talented and out on a great show. We look forward to going back!

Nicole H.

This place is awesome, every detail! Greeted by go cart on arrival to take you to the dining hall. Beautiful dining hall! Every single person who works there is very accommodating and helpful. There are plenty of activities while waiting for dinner and a show! Food was excellent and plenty.

Susannah Z.

I had my Rehearsal Dinner here. I am actually at a loss of words to express my gratitude to Leigh Ann and Ruth. We felt like family. The grounds are absolutely magical and having the entire place to ourselves was instrumental in creating a feeling of being miles away from civilization and we never wanted to leave. Literally my entire wedding party of thirty-seven people agreed that it was the one of most unique experiences they had ever had.

Melissa C.

What a fun evening at the Ranch! We took a group of kids and put of town guests, there was something for everyone. Great atmosphere, the hike was beautiful, kids loved interactions with the animals. The food was hearty, and the musical talent was superb.

In January, we held our 500-employee celebration of the successful opening of the Colorado Springs store. The event far exceeded our expectations.  The large LED video wall allowed us to have the most powerful awards ceremony ever. In addition, all five hundred of us watched the game.  The food and service were amazing.  Dancing was great, as the acoustics are fantastic.  I highly recommend the Flying W for any corporate event.

Cathi S., ERA Shields

We held our awards event for ERA Shields last year for the first time at Flying W.  Everyone liked it so much, we decided to go back and have it here again this year.  We love, the venue, the food and the service.  There is no place like it in Colorado Springs.
