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.
Battle Pass Scenic Byway Alliance proudly announces Michael Martin Murphey to play a benefit Matinee performance at the Platte Valley Community Center on Sunday, June 12th from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Murphey will do a Saturday night show on the 2nd Saturday of June in future years. Last year his show was the end of August and it received rave reviews.
Murphey performs all over the country every year. His annual Cowboy Christmas Tour is the longest running and most successful musical tribute to the holidays each season.
Murphey lives outside of Gould, Colorado on a ranch, when he is not traveling, and he is a marvelous historian in addition to being a highly regarded Musician. He has a passion about the west and loves WYDOT 70, the Battle Pass Scenic Byway.
Battle Pass Scenic Byway Alliance is a Non-profit organization and since government funds virtually do not exist at any level to do the interpretation, this group took over fund raising to tell the story of this magnificent drive over the Continental Divide and along the historic Battle Creek site that gave the area its name.
Tickets are $35 and may be purchased at the PVCC or by calling 307-326-7822. The front two rows are reserved at $100 a ticket. If you have questions, please call John Farr at 307-710-3277 or Virginia Parker at 307-321-3933.

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.
Joe Elder, Executive Director
The Platte Valley Community Center is located in Saratoga, Wyoming in the heart of the Upper North Platte River Valley. "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.
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.
