Outdoor Venues

Every season, the Garden provides a fantastic array of color – a splendid backdrop for any occasion. From a walk down a natural aisle of flowers in the Statuary Vista on your wedding day to holding your company picnic surrounded by the lush greenery of Mayor’s Row the many outdoor options at the garden will make your next event truly memorable.

Outdoor events are at the mercy of the elements. Please consider this when planning any outdoor event and be sure to include a provision for inclement weather. Please be sure that you have read thoroughly and agree to comply with the guidelines governing the weddings and receptions at Norfolk Botanical Garden. Verbal agreements will not supersede the rules and regulations stated in Event Guidelines.
