Whether you are hosting a wedding, conference, meeting, party, or other occasion, the Arboretum is dedicated to making your event a memorable one.
Event Rooms (Indoor)
Indoor venues at the JC Raulston Arboretum bring the outdoors in for your next meeting, conference, reception, or special dinner. The JCRA offers a variety of indoor venues all located in the Ruby C. McSwain Education Center, and each with stunning views of our acclaimed four-season garden. Floor to ceiling windows open onto a garden terrace, making our indoor venues as delightful and memorable as our gardens. Indoor venues are available to rent seven days a week from 7:00 am to midnight (later upon request).
Gardens at the JC Raulston Arboretum offer stunning settings with world-famous plant collections as a backdrop for your special event. Each outdoor event location offers its own unique ambiance and features. Outdoor garden venues are available to rent seven days a week from sunrise to sunset.
