Enjoy a Backdrop of Gorgeous Gardens and Intimate Receptions 

The Taft Museum of Art’s historic gardens, formerly the Catawba vineyards of our historic house's resident Nicholas Longworth, now sit nestled behind the Museum. Our tented brick terrace provides an intimate retreat for outdoor weddings and receptions with the beautiful backdrop of the luscious gardens and open lawn. This 180-person space can be arranged to accommodate a band and a dance floor in spring, summer, and fall.

The Taft continues to modify its event rental policies and capacities to keep our guests and staff healthy and safe. Reach out to learn more:
