Special Celebrations

Pittsburgh Botanic Garden offers a unique setting for many different events—anniversaries, mitzvahs, birthday parties, reunions, and so much more! Host your next event in the Davidson Event Center—our newly renovated 1870’s barn with a modern, rustic charm. The Event Center features a wall of windows overlooking the natural woodland beauty of Oakdale; rustic chandeliers that tie in with our countryside chic atmosphere; and a large patio providing ample room for seating, mingling, and even dancing! Make the day your own.

  • Stone Fireplace (with complimentary wood and maintenance)
  • Day-of Event Manager
  • Admission to Pittsburgh Botanic Garden for your guests until dusk the day of your event
