Events At the Governor’s Mansion

The Governor’s Mansion offers a pleasant setting for hosting teas, luncheons, and general receptions. Events may be requested online by completing an event request application. All events must be planned according to specific event formats and menus provided on the Mansion website. Due to the limited capacity of the residence, the number of guests permitted varies depending on whether you are hosting a reception, a seated meal or a tea.

Please note that because of the volume of requests that are received for events, the Governor’s Mansion is not available for weddings, wedding receptions or fundraisers. Also, due to the high volume of tours from February through May, there is limited availability for any public events during these months.

Rates for use of the Governor’s Mansion are based on the number of invited guests and whether or not the request is from a non-profit organization, a business organization, or for personal use. The basic fee includes use of the first floor, use of the standard glassware, plates, flatware, banquet tables and chairs, and access to an on-site events coordinator. Labor fees, as well as any other optional miscellaneous fees, are charged in addition to the basic fee.

Parking Information
