About Laurel Park

Laurel Park is a historic wedding venue located in Laurel, Maryland. This establishment began its history in 1911, joining the racing ranks. 1914 saw the purchase of the track and the celebrated Col. Matt Winn, well known for putting the Kentucky Derby on the map, overseeing the management of the property. After changing a couple of hands, Laurel Park was purchased by the Schapiros in 1950. After successful expansion and numerous races, Schapiro's reign was succeeded by Frank J. De Francis and the Manfusos, Robert and John, in 1984. Millions of dollars were funneled into the property in the subsequent years, resulting in the creation of the Sports Palace, lavish clubhouse renovations, and various improvements scattered throughout. Joseph A.De Francis took on the responsibility of the venue following his father's passing, revitalizing it to suit modern-day interests and demands.

Facilities and Capacity

Laurel Park is pleased to host a variety of occasions from bridal showers to ceremonies. This venue has eight event rental options. The first is the Carriage Room which allows 800 people to attend your wedding. The next space is the Ruffian Room which holds a capacity of 200 guests seated. There is also a Sports Bar that allows for a maximum of 500 people. Should a party need a bit more space, they can rent out the entire second-floor clubhouse, inclusive of the Ruffian Room and Sports Bar. Otherwise, couples are able to make use of the Director's Room which is perfect for a 75-person cocktail party. Sixteen individuals fit within the Grand View Dining Boxes, and both the Sky Lounge and the White House Lawn fit 300 guests.
