For couples seeking a unique, historic, and inspiring venue, Glen Echo Park is the perfect choice. The Park is a magical place situated on the Potomac Palisades near Bethesda, Maryland.
Our Bumper Car Pavilion, built in 1923 during the amusement park era of Glen Echo Park, is the perfect spot for small to medium-sized wedding ceremonies and receptions. Glen Echo Park offers additional unique venues for rehearsal dinners, wedding ceremonies, and receptions, as well as Indian wedding sangeets, mitzvahs, showers, galas, and corporate events. The Park is also home to the renowned Spanish Ballroom, a beautifully restored 1933 Mediterranean style Art Deco building that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Ballroom is a formal and glamorous venue for large wedding receptions, galas, and other events.

Our company has videotaped many functions at this park – usually weddings in the Spanish Ballroom or even Bar/Bat Mitzvahs in the Bumper Car Pavilion. Our clients were happy with their choice of venue and our videos will help them remember those happy times forever. Can’t wait to get back to the park again and videotape another function.
One of our favorite wedding venues -- Emily is SO great to work with, their prices are affordable, and they have rules, but not too many ridiculous ones! GREAT venue!
Glen Echo Park is one of the most FUN venues in the area. The open air bumper car pavilion has so much personality and lets you have an 'outside' wedding without a tent, but protected. The other 'rides' entertain your guests and provide a lot of conversation. The staff is easy to work with and very helpful.
