Our 39 acres and indoor facilities offer a one-of-a-kind location for wedding ceremonies, receptions, and photos. Brides and grooms have celebrated their special day at Queens Botanical Garden for years — come visit and see why. Whether the Garden is a backdrop for your portraits, you’re exchanging vows in our glorious Wedding Garden, or you’re having your reception on our Terrace or in our Auditorium, your special day will be unforgettable. The Garden is also ideal for bar or bat mitzvahs, birthday or graduation parties, showers, cocktail parties and other special celebrations.
