We are pleased to be able to offer our outdoor venues for private event rental. These include the Great Lawn (up to 300 guests), Fountain Courtyard (up to 150 guests), Julia Brown Courtyard (up to 150 guests) and on-site parking areas (up to 150 vehicles). We have a modest kitchen space with refrigeration and counter space for food preparation.
