The Northern Colorado Home Builders Association was proud to hold our annual Parade of Homes Awards Dinner at The Ranch Bar & Grill. The set-up worked out perfectly, staff was exceptional, friendly, and very helpful in accommodating any type of event that you may want to have. There were 140 attendees that were managed comfortably and we will continue to book these types of events there. The location is convenient, plenty of parking and there is a great selection of food choices through Spectra. Sponsors, attendees, and speakers were all very impressed and pleased to have the event there.
