Madrigal Banquet 2020

Madrigal Banquet

An Extravagant Christmas Production for over 30 years!

No other holiday event compares to Glen Eyrie’s Madrigal Banquet! With a thirty-year history, this spectacular holiday event continues to be a Colorado classic.

Set in the grandeur of The Great Hall of The Castle, our 16th century-style banquet is sure to inspire and prepare your heart for this Christmas season.

Filled with festive entertainment by talented musicians and performers, this classic tradition is guaranteed to create unforgettable Christmas memories! Our award-winning Culinary Team has hand-crafted the evening’s lavish four-course meal with savory new flavors that pair perfectly with your sensational experience.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to make significant changes to elements of the Madrigal this year.

In order to ensure social distancing, we have re-arranged the table setups and the location of the performers. Our room capacity is significantly less, and tables are now located at least six feet away from each other. All staff will be wearing masks and we require all guests to comply with state mandates and wear masks indoors except while eating or drinking. In order to ensure that our guests are within the same social groups, we will be selling tickets per table, not by individual seat. As always, we can accommodate Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Vegan and Vegetarian diets but we will be charging an additional $10 per guest to account for the different ingredients and special handling required during this time.

This year, Ticket sales are PER TABLE, a minimum reservation is a 4 seat table for $520 plus tax.

We can accommodate party sizes of 4-8 people, each additional person is $130 plus tax.

(Even if you only have a party of  2 or 3 you must reserve a table that seats 4. We will not be placing separate parties of 2 at a 4-top table as this defeats the purpose of keeping each table a consistent social group.)

Reservations for a 4-top table are $520 + tax, each additional person is $130 + tax, maximum party size is 8. Special diet requests are an additional $10 per person. .

These prices includes all gratuities.

*Ticket Sales are non-refundable. Payment is required at the time of reservation. Please verify all information before ordering.

To make a reservation please call 719-265-7050.
