All-New Event Barn to be complete in 2019

There’s something that has been missing at our property for years (which by the way, is celebrating our 150-year anniversary.) What you ask? A barn, of course. A ranch, after all, is the most fitting place to put one. The plan for this Event Barn isn’t to house any of Tanque Verde Ranch’s cattle or horses though; it will be far too decadent. Instead, it will host corporate events, celebrations, and weddings.

The Event Barn, when finished, will be 20,000 square feet, accommodating up to 300 guests at a time. It will feature an on-site kitchen, a bar, a grand fireplace, a patio and lawn area for outdoor events, and plenty of windows inside allowing for every guest to soak in the serene beauty of the infinite desert scene.

The Event Barn’s location will be close to Tanque Verde Ranch’s main entrance. The superb new venue will overlook a breathtaking view of the Saguaro National Park at the base of the Rincons with Mica Mountain as its centerpiece. The panoramas alone will be an unforgettable memory for every guest to experience. 


The inside of the Event Barn will provide a vast open space catering to all sorts of dinners, ceremonies, and events. Rustic wood siding, thick mesquite beams, and large industrial chandeliers will hang from the ceiling. The building itself will have a modern take on classic architecture fitting the ranch’s current décor and style.

The back of the Event Barn has large doors that will open to picturesque views and an event lawn with detailed landscaping. The patio and back lawn will be the perfect space to sip on a Prickly Pear Margarita, mingle with loved ones, or escape for a few moments and take in all the Arizona beauty.

Tanque Verde Ranch expects to utilize the Event Barn for a ‘backup’ venue for outdoor events and activities from time to time. It will also be a prime option for locals in the Tucson area to consider for family gatherings and weddings as well. With convenient access from Speedway Boulevard, local guests coming and going to the Event Barn can easily steer clear from the main resort to make for an exclusive and suitable venue for any party. 

The Event Barn is expected to be complete in the Fall of 2019. The infinite desert-scene upon this terrace will illuminate any event. Whether it’s a destination ranch wedding, business function, family reunion, or local event – it will be an unforgettable gathering ground. 

“Tanque Verde Ranch offers many great opportunities for meetings, weddings, and other eventsbut we have always had a sense that something was missing. With the new Event Barn to be constructed in 2019, we expect Tanque Verde Ranch will become one of Tucson’s most desired venues. This will not only accommodate hundreds of guests at a time but will also imprint everlasting memories by the mountainous views, the elegant atmosphere, and more. It will ultimately complete the southwest dude ranch experience,” expressed Mary Ellen, Director of Sales at the Tanque Verde Ranch.
