There’s a reason why real estate agents say Location, Location, Location – it’s that important! The same holds true with your wedding or event. Where you have it matters just as much as who’s catering it, what your decorations look like, and what you decide to wear!
We’re sharing our top picks for the best wedding and event venues in Flagstaff to save you some searching:

This breathtaking resort has a vibe for all seasons. In the winter, it transforms into Arizona’s premier ski and snow resort that rivals the top-notch resorts you’ll find anywhere else on the West Coast. And when the sun drives all the snow away, the lift turns into a sightseeing journey that’s equal parts relaxing and scenic.
For event planners, Snowbowl Resort is one of the best hosts in town. There’s plenty of lodging on-site for guests, plus you’re surrounded by picturesque mountains and greenery as far as the eye can see.
Forest Highlands Golf Course
Call it a golf course, or a mountain retreat, or a place you’d like to consider your home away from home. Hands down, your guests will feel like they’ve entered paradise (and might never want to leave!). The Forest Highlands Golf Course is a prime spot for weddings, in particular, given the rolling fairytale-like hills, bridge-covered ponds, and spacious areas for parties up to 180 guests.
The flexibility of the spaces here makes it an obvious choice. Walk down the aisle to an enchanting woodland ceremony that’s bursting with romance. Then take your pick of a clubhouse reception our outdoor affair with event tents or open-air dining. They work hard to make each event as amazing as you’ve envisioned.
Flagstaff Ranch Golf Course
is the sprawling mountain retreat that every event deserves. Private events are common here, thanks to its warm, inviting clubhouse that looks like it was made for mixers and functions of all sorts. Weddings, meetings, and holiday parties are common here, ranging from small gatherings up to large-scale banquets.
It helps that the food is nothing short of top-notch, all freshly prepared on site by expert chefs. The best part is you don’t have to be a member of the community to host your event here.
The Arboretum of Flagstaff
The Arboretum of Flagstaff isn’t just a fun place to visit, it’s also a great place to party! The folks here are no strangers to event planning, from weddings to rehearsal dinners to meetings and more. The San Francisco Peaks provide a stunning backdrop in the outdoor space, complete with beautiful greenery that’s perfectly befitting an arboretum.
The historic Walter Reichardt House was the home of the arboretum’s founder and now serves as the center’s visitor center, administrative offices, and meeting areas. If you prefer an indoor event, this home will be your host, complete with garden views, a full kitchen, and access to the spacious flagstone patio.
Little America Hotel
Little America is the pure definition of rustic beauty! This elegant retreat features 10 unique event spaces ranging from a spacious boardroom to a grandiose 6,000-square foot ballroom to a sprawling outdoor lawn that can accommodate up to 350 guests. It’s ideal for events that have traveling guests, thanks to its cushy on-site hotel rooms.
Hands down, this is one of the most iconic event centers in Flagstaff, with a long-standing history and reputation to match. The entire hotel has undergone extensive renovations to include modern comforts and amenities, yet still retains the unique facades and details that made it so special in the first place.
High Country Conference Center
From meetings to weddings, High Country Conference Center offers a full-service event service that’s tough to beat. They cater to small day meetings, multi-day conferences, and weddings alike, complete with all the setup, breakdown, and equipment you need for your guests.
