Bring your dream event to life! The Garden provides the perfect setting for weddings, baby showers, birthday and anniversary celebrations, corporate events, and more.

The Garden offers a unique, intimate venue of amazing landscapes and distinctive spaces and is available for non-commercial use by individuals, businesses, corporations and nonprofit organizations with 501(c)3 status. Gatherings are held in several areas in the garden depending on the size and type of event. Only one special event is scheduled at any one time in The Ruth Bancroft Garden.

We are not currently booking private events in the Garden at this time, but please reach out if you’re interested in pricing. The Visitor and Education Center is projected to be finished by late spring/early summer 2019. Once we have a firm finish date for construction, we will begin booking weddings and other private events.
