Welcome

The Platte Valley Community Center, located in rustic and beautiful Saratoga, Wyoming, is the perfect place to host your next venue. From art shows, wedding receptions, and performing art to formal presentations and meetings, we have plenty of space and a variety of services to accommodate every event.

Featured Events

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.

With 10 instruments between them and 53 strings to tune Otter Creek burst onto the national Folk scene in 2012 with back to back hit albums on the Folk Charts. Since that time they've seen a TV placement on the season 6 finale of TLC's Sister Wives, and the top single of their current album "The Fiddle Preacher debuted at #10 on the Folk DJ charts. Otter Creek has won multiple awards for their virtuosic instrumentals, adept songwriting, and visionary arrangements of traditional and original tunes. They have drawn praise from around the country leading one critic to describe them as “a duo that is both a technical marvel and tastefully perfect.” They use their “superb musicianship underpinned by stunning technique” to perform “songs that appeal to the heart and mind as well as the ear.” (Greg Harness, Rootsworld Magazine).

 

Otter Creek will be working with elementary students from both Encampment and Saratoga to compose verses for a song and performing that song with Otter Creek in the evening!

"The Good Times Valley" is a destination with endless opportunities for outdoor recreation and plenty of cultural and historical events that bring people together for good times.

 

Surrounded by Rivers, Lakes and Mountains

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.

The Platte Valley Community Center is within walking distance to a variety of services in Saratoga and just a short drive from Encampment. So it really doesn't matter where you stay. Both communities boast excellent restaurants, comfortable hotels, motels and resorts, and several "must see" attractions.
