Meeting planners evaluating Park City for their next event often aren't aware that there's more to the area than the gorgeous on-mountain resorts and au courant eateries to be found on Main Street. A quick drive into the valley east of town yields several top-notch venues for consideration.

The DeJoria Center in Kamas, Utah, is part of the High Star Ranch.

The center hosts up to 1,300 theater-style or 550 for a banquet. The  second-story pub called the State Road Tavern is available for dinners and receptions of up to 250 people and features a deck with mountain views. 

The elegant barn of River Bottoms Ranch on the Provo River in Medley seats up to 200 for a dinner, plus 150 under the pavilion. The rustic chandeliers in the barn can be lowered to be adorned with flowers or other decorations of choice.
