Butterfly Pavilion provides a unique space for weddings, unions, receptions, and parties throughout the year. The 2,000-square-foot ballroom features hardwood floors and large windows overlooking a stunning patio and water feature, their Discovery Garden, and Jefferson County Open Space. The ballroom accommodates 150 guests seated or 200 for a cocktail-style reception, with additional space on the patio for up to 100 guests. The residential-sized warming kitchen is perfect for preparing buffets and served meals or putting the finishing touches on cakes and hors d’oeuvres.
Small ceremonies of 40 people or less can be held in their Wings of the Tropics Conservatory, an indoor tropical rainforest biome with over 1,500 free flying butterflies. This space serves as the perfect backdrop for an intimate ceremony. As a truly unique and beautiful addition, Butterfly Pavilion offers private butterfly releases, so you and your loved one can mark your union with gorgeous butterflies taking flight.
At Butterfly Pavilion you can enjoy the beauty and comfort of a truly versatile venue, while knowing your event is making a positive impact on both local and global communities. All proceeds from rental sales support Butterfly Pavilion’s education, research and conservation programs meant to protect and restore invertebrate species and their habitats around the world.
Events held during business hours receive general admission to their interactive exhibits featuring invertebrates from all over the world, while after-hours events can reserve private access to any of their exhibits, including their Wings of the Tropics Conservatory featuring over 1,500 free flying tropical butterflies.
