The NOCCA Foundation oversees rentals at the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts, a tuition-free arts conservatory for Louisiana high school students. You'll find a complete list of available venues below. (Pricing is available in the pricing section of our storefront.) Here, you can celebrate a dynamic event filled with character.

OUR VENUES
We are now taking reservations for three beautiful venues, all located in the heart of New Orleans' historic Faubourg Marigny/Bywater neighborhoods:

PRESS STREET STATION
Press Street Station is a beautiful, airy event venue that features architectural details from the building's long history as a railway facility and warehouse. A recent restoration added modern updates, including glass garage doors that can be rolled up during nice weather, a marble bar, flat-screen TVs, and a professional kitchen.

Your rental includes the use of the kitchen, as well as tables and chairs. We have four-tops and two-tops for "restaurant style" receptions, as well as six-foot tables for something a bit more "family style". There are also six high-boy tables for cocktail parties, and enough outdoor furniture (shared with Press Street Gardens) to accommodate 24 guests.

  • Capacity with tables and chairs: 74 people inside, 24 people outside, 98 people total
  • Capacity with chairs only, theatre-style: 100 people
  • Capacity standing: 200 people
  • Interior seating: 9 four-tops (36 seats), 12 two-tops (24 seats), 14 bar seats
  • Exterior seating: 4 four-tops (16 seats) and 4 two-tops (8 seats)

5 PRESS GALLERY

5 Press Gallery adjoins Press Street Station and serves as a place to display artwork by NOCCA faculty and alumni. It is a "white box" style gallery that can be used for a wide variety of events. Your rental includes the use of tables and chairs (shared with Press Street Station), including four-tops, two-tops, six-foot tables, and high-boys.

  • Capacity with tables and chairs: 36 people (six rounds of six)
  • Capacity with chairs only, theatre-style: 65 people
  • Capacity standing: 85 people

PRESS STREET GARDENS
Need a lush outdoor space for a birthday party, wedding, film screening, or other event? Press Street Gardens is just what you’re looking for. It’s a half-acre urban farm, an outdoor laboratory, and a beautiful event space that can accommodate a wide variety of groups. It’s also been named one of New Orleans’ most beautiful places to get married.

Press Street Gardens features a large courtyard that can accommodate roughly 200 people standing, as well as the "Louisiana Garden", a large greenspace surrounded by native trees, shrubs, and perennials. Between the two, your guests can peruse the herbs and vegetables grown by students in NOCCA's Culinary Arts program. Want to include your furry four-legged friend in your intimate ceremony? No problem! Press Street Gardens is animal friendly!

When you rent Press Street Gardens, you have access to six high-boy tables, five six-foot tables, and enough outdoor furniture to accommodate 24 guests. (All furniture is shared with Press Street Station.)

  • Approximately 18,000 total square feet
  • Approximately 4,000 square feet in the courtyard area alone
  • Approximately 2,500 square feet in the Louisiana garden alone

    Unique and Beautiful New Orleans Venue

    We had both the reception and ceremony at the NOCCA Institute. The NOCCA Institute was absolutely beautiful and unique on our wedding day. Rachel is a delight to work with- super easy to communicate with and very prompt. We highly recommend the venue for any event!

    NOCCA Foundation's reply:

    Thanks for the kind words, Rebekah! We loved hosting you and Kyle on your special day here at The NOCCA Institute! Warm wishes to you both!
