Celebrate your event at the Garden!
Whether it’s a wedding ceremony, a family picnic on the porch, or a socially-distanced happy hour with friends, the Garden makes for a beautiful venue for your next COVID-safe event. Take advantage of the cooler fall weather, our annual sculpture show, and our native plant landscapes, and book your private event today!
Use the sidebar menu to explore the types of events that can be held and different room options at the Garden. Rental rates vary depending on a number of factors, including purpose of use, day of the week, and the space used. In addition to the Allen Education Center at the North Carolina Botanical Garden, we have two on-campus, outdoor venues: the Forest Theatre at Battle Park and the Coker Arboretum.
We are taking many precautions to ensure your the safety of our guests and community, including enhanced cleaning efforts, requiring masks in shared spaces, and offering new outdoor-only spaces where air ventilation and spacing are optimal for private gatherings.
