Mount Pisgah Arboretum’s beautiful White Oak Pavilion is a 3,000 square foot building with large glassed-in barn sliding doors that open on all sides to reveal the peaceful scenery and oak savannah landscapes of the Arboretum. The building is easily accessible to caterers, musicians, and guests. Pavilion rental includes day and evening use of the building and the surrounding lawns. Our staff supplies the essentials, leaving you free to create your dream ceremony or reception. Our venue is ideal for the couple who seek a meaningful and beautiful wedding with a strong connection to nature, and who care about comfort and accessibility for their loved ones.
Consider booking well in advance; our lovely White Oak Pavilion hosts weddings and other events almost every weekend during the year.
The Arboretum is open from dawn to dusk every day of the year, and you are welcome to visit the Pavilion to take a look; please be respectful of school groups and special events and do not enter the building when it is in use. Check out our rental and rates information below for more information, then call or email our Site Rentals Coordinator at (541)747-1504 or firstname.lastname@example.org to check availability.
