About United States National Arboretum

Only recently available for wedding receptions; the US National Arboretum offers the largest outdoor space for private events in Washington. A living museum steps from DC sidewalks. Have your ceremony in the shadows of the historic columns, enjoy cocktails in the sprawling Herb Garden and of course, dance the night away in your own private meadow under the stars!
