Weddings & Social Events

Business Meetings & Corporate Events

Locust Grove welcomes groups for weddings, other family events, community events, retreats, and business meetings. To ensure that we can meet your specific needs, please call or email.

The grounds, including formal gardens, lawns, and the porch of the 1790 house, are available evenings, and tents may be rented and set up in designated areas. The Visitors' Center building includes the Audubon Room (auditorium), with a catering kitchen, and can be rented either together with, or separately from, the grounds. The Visitor Center is sometimes available during the day on weekdays as well for meetings and conferences. For more wedding photos, see our Facebook page. Popular dates for weddings are often booked early - please reserve your dates as early as possible, and consider alternative days of the week.

Business Meetings & Organizational and Corporate Events

Locust Grove is an unusual and refreshing setting for a business meeting or other event. Locust Grove is available for organizational and corporate meetings, luncheons, classes, and retreats. The space can be arranged to seat up to 120 participants; and 14 8-ft. tables are available for your use. A flexible divider allows dividing the space in two for breakout sessions, or to shape the room to your needs. A catering kitchen opens on to the room for easy service of breakfast, snacks, and lunch as needed. You can choose any caterer that you prefer. The patio, grounds, and gardens provide a relaxing setting for breaks and, in good weather, breakout sessions. The room itself has a fireplace that can be used in colder weather. Rates are flexible depending on the size of the group and the length of the program. We will make every effort to accommodate your needs for setup and starting times, taking into consideration the needs of the historic site.
