Weddings & Event Rentals

Carlyle House wedding

This historic 18th century stone house and its exquisite gardens offer an elegant and intimate setting in the heart of historic Old Town Alexandria for both business and social functions. Whether you are hosting a retirement, anniversary, or rehearsal dinner, an engagement party, wedding or reception or a business meet and greet or team building activity, the Carlyle House Historic Museum and Park offers the perfect location. The site is half a block off of King Street and a block and a half from the waterfront – making it easy for guests to walk to and from nearby hotels and popular gathering spots.  Parking is readily available at adjacent parking garages.

The park is available for rentals April 1 through October 31. You may host your event on the tented Magnolia Terrace, in the beautiful garden, or on the expansive front lawn. In addition to evening receptions, we also offer two-hour rentals at almost any time. Maximum capacity varies from 65 – 100 depending upon the location you wish to utilize. The gardens and terrace are wheelchair accessible.
