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, and to inquire about rates and availability, please call or email us.

The new 4000 square foot open-air event Pavilion is the main site for social and corporate events, available from March through November, featuring access to the grounds, roll-down rain screens, restrooms, and a direct connection to a new catering kitchen. The grounds, including formal gardens, lawns, and the porch of the 1790s house, are available evenings, and tents may be rented and set up in designated areas. The Visitors' Center building includes the Audubon Room (auditorium), also with access to the catering kitchen, which can be rented either together with, or separately from, the grounds. The Visitor Center is often available during the day on weekdays as well for meetings and conferences.

Popular dates for events 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 available for organizational and corporate meetings, luncheons, classes, and retreats. We offer an indoor space in the Audubon Room (auditorium) and an outdoor setting in our new open-air pavilion.

The auditorium space can be arranged to seat up to 120 participants; and fourteen 8-ft. tables and 120 chairs are available for your use. The Pavilion can seat up to 250 depending on the arrangement of the space, with round tables and 100 chairs available for an additional fee.

A flexible divider allows dividing the spaces in two for breakout sessions, or to shape the spaces to your needs. A catering kitchen opens on to both the indoor and outdoor spaces for easy service of breakfast, snacks, and lunch as needed.

The patio, grounds, and gardens provide a relaxing setting for breaks and, in good weather, breakout sessions. The Auditorium features 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. Wi-fi is available throughout the facility.

Information for Rentals

Historic Locust Grove is a National Historic Landmark, and an accredited museum. While we enjoy making the site available for special occasions, our primary purpose is to share the history of early Kentucky while preserving it for future generations.
