Wedding & Event Venue

The Grand Hall

Cape Fear Botanical Garden provides an impressive setting for weddings, receptions, showers, retreats, military functions, meetings and more. In addition to outdoor gardens, we also have indoor spaces. The unique features of the Grand Hall include a wall of windows overlooking the garden and spanning from the carpeted floor to the steel beam ceiling, as well as two exposed brick walls. The Grand Hall can be arranged in several setups from three smaller rooms to one large space. When you rent the Grand Hall for your event, you also have access to the Grand Hall Lawn – a lovely outdoor option for a cocktail hour – providing an indoor/outdoor event setting.

Our Event Coordinators will work with you and to ensure your celebration is wonderful and memorable. For inspiration, view our Pinterest board.

We appreciate you considering Cape Fear Botanical Garden as your event venue. By hosting your special event at the Garden, you help support our cultural and educational programming and activities.
