Rental Fees

All venue rentals are “first-paid-first-served”, and must be pre-paid in full and scheduled through the Alaska Botanical Garden office. If you leave a phone message or send an email, we will respond at our earliest convenience. The Garden is not available for rental when ABG is conducting its own events. Please call for black-out dates. A Venue Rental Agreement must be completed and submitted with the full deposit to reserve your date.

Venue rentals are available anytime during regular staff hours (weekdays 8am – 5pm), and by appointment for early evenings and weekends. Rental rates differ depending on size and time of event. Venue rentals are not available when ABG is hosting major events. Due to the nature of our operations, we do not close the Garden for rented events and as such, Garden visitors may be in the area. It has been our experience that in such instances, visitors are respectful. Please refer to our website for staffing and hours of operation.
