Planning a Private Event

Montpelier is the perfect place to host an event that calls for a unique and special venue - an anniversary party, a rehearsal dinner, or a family reunion. Hosting your event at the stately home of James and Dolley Madison and birthplace of the U.S. Constitution lets your guests know how important they are to you. 

For more information about event and property rentals, please contact Kathy Artus, Director of Events and Hospitality, at (540) 672-2728, ext. 120 or kartus@montpelier.org.
