Welcome to Willow Vale Events

Hillside, Colorado is a quaint and historical township, preserving the ambiance and wholesomeness of a simpler time. From the modest elegance of the four cottages, the reminiscent familiarity of the old-fashioned post office and general store, and the historic Hillside Hall at the edge of the grove of Black Willow trees, this small town is an undiscovered gem.

Located in Southern Colorado on highway 69 between Westcliffe, Salida, and Canon City, it welcomes visitors where the Wet Mountain Valley begins to broaden, east of the stately Sangre de Cristo Mountains. With the harmony of nature and panoramic views, Hillside is the perfect combination of rustic and modern for bringing your family, friends, and guests together for a memorable event.

Hillside is a historic ranching community that dates back to 1859. We continue the traditional use of the area for community events, as well as for music and weddings throughout the year. Although our location is relatively remote, this lends itself to the many benefits of silence, wilderness, endless starry nights, and breathtaking sunrises and sunsets.

Each event and wedding is unique and requires individual planning and accommodations. Contact our on-site event planner for more information or to schedule a personalized tour.
