Here at the Gardens, we can host a number of events from wedding ceremonies and receptions, corporate retreats and meetings, to parties and celebrations. From the iconic dome of the Boettcher Memorial Tropical Conservatory to the painterly water lilies of Monet Pool, Denver Botanic Gardens at York Street is a true Denver landmark. Its extraordinary rental sites include tropical plants, exotic blooms, rare and native species, and water displays across a 24-acre campus.

Whether the occasion is a large and lavish event or a cozy, informal gathering, the variety of indoor facilities and outdoor sites has something for everyone. Choose from any of our eight outdoor spaces or four indoor spaces or pick a combination of the two for a spectacular event.

For more information on hosting your next private event, contact us at or talk with one of our team members at 720-865-3551.
