Nearing the late summer completion of a substantial renovation, we invite you to plan your meetings, weddings, and celebrations in our historic and sparkling interior spaces, verdant gardens, courtyards and terraces.  

The historic Friends Meeting of Washington, built in 1930 and surrounded by gardens, is a short walk from the Dupont Circle Metro station in Washington, DC, and is close to many hotels and restaurants. 

We can accommodate events of various sizes.  We accept rentals of one room, a combination of rooms, or the entire campus.  With a new elevator, we will be fully accessible.

We imagine garden weddings in the private oasis just beyond our new entrance. Natural plantings surround the lawn and terrace. Musicians tune their instruments. A reception or seated dinner after the ceremony may be set up in the Assembly Room, to the left of the patio (and out of view).  



We anticipate conferences making great use of multiple meeting spaces connected through the elevator lobby and interior corridors or by the grand stair between gardens and terraces outside.  




Event rental prices are affordable, with a sliding-scale that favors non-profit organizations in alignment with our values. WiFi, tables, chairs, and audiovisual equipment are available for no extra charge at events. Our campus is smoke-free. Beer and wine (no liquor) are allowed at select events with prior approval and arrangement.  

With environmental sustainability in mind, we chose renewable cork floors for our three largest rooms. We recycle and compost as much as possible and generate electricity by solar panels on our roof.  We created a green roof above the new lobby and connecting corridors and we landscape with native species.
