Set the Stage at Montpelier

Whether you are planning your dream wedding, arranging a corporate retreat, organizing a company picnic, or looking for a special place for an anniversary dinner, James Madison's Montpelier provides a uniquely beautiful and historical setting for your special event.

Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the heart of Virginia's Piedmont, Montpelier offers nearly 2,700 acres of beautiful gardens, landmark forests, walking paths, and rolling hills dotted with Thoroughbreds.

The Visitor Center at James Madison's Montpelier boasts a luxurious Grand Salon, a smaller cafe, a 60-seat theater, and spaces for outdoor tented events within view of the mountains. You can also host an event in front of James Madison's Temple, within the brick walls of the terraced Annie duPont Formal Garden, or on picnic table by the steeplechase racecourse.

Montpelier can accommodate up to 25 overnight guests for corporate functions in the residential cottages in the Constitutional Village.
