The Atlanta Botanical Garden has played a major role in the Atlanta community since its opening in 1976. The 30-acre garden regularly features a variety of elaborate exhibitions and a vast collection of plants. In addition to its scheduled events and public tours, the Atlanta Botanical Garden also hosts private events including weddings and receptions, corporate meetings, and other special celebrations.
In terms of private events, the Garden has a large selection of vendors that provide catering and audiovisual services, dining and decor services, entertainment, florist services, and more. Within the Garden, customers can choose from several event spaces. The spaces offered range in capacity and pricing. Complimentary items that accompany each event rental include a selection of chairs and tables, audiovisual and sound equipment, easels, a podium, and wireless internet. To rent a Garden event venue, customers are required to pay a venue production fee, sign a rental agreement, and provide both a non-refundable and refundable deposit.
