Picnic House

The Picnic House in Prospect Park is a popular New York City wedding venue located in a charming and historic building in the heart of Brooklyn’s premier park. With scenic views of the 90-acre Long Meadow, outdoor spaces for ceremonies and cocktails, floor-to-ceiling windows, hardwood floors and a working wood fireplace, it provides a bucolic setting for your perfect day.

The Picnic House can be tailored for every taste and budget, and is a blank canvas to create the ideal wedding or event, no matter the season. The Picnic House comfortably seats 175 guests for dinner and dancing or 240 for a cocktail-style event.

The Picnic House is the perfect venue for your outdoor ceremony on the sprawling Long Meadow, alongside the comfortable amenities of our stunning indoor space. We have curated a spectacular list of vendors to recommend for your event. Our elevated stage is perfect for performances, ceremonies & speeches. Recently completed is our beautiful, private Couples’ Suite where you can relax before & during your wedding.

Petite Events are also available for up to 60 guests for ceremonies and toasts.
