Plan Your Event

Sierra Vista is small enough to treat you like the VIP you are, but large enough to serve your needs. Centrally located with facilities that can accommodate larger crowds that want major events, or make a smaller gathering feel intimate and unique. Sierra Vista’s events planning team is welcoming, responsive, and professional.

Here, the sun shines almost every day of the year, offering plenty of things to do before and after your event, whether attendees are looking for outdoor recreation, entertainment, or just lounging by the pool. And with both outdoor and indoor event facilities, we will work with you and your clients to have them leave saying, “That was the best event I’ve ever been to.”
