Need a lush outdoor space for a birthday party, wedding, film screening, or other event? Press Street Gardens could be just what you’re looking for. It’s a half-acre urban farm, an outdoor laboratory, and a beautiful event space that can accommodate a wide variety of groups. It’s also been named one of New Orleans’ most beautiful places to get married!

Press Street Gardens features a large courtyard that can accommodate roughly 200 people standing, and at the opposite end of the Gardens, there’s an even bigger lawn. Between the two, your guests can peruse the herbs and vegetables we grow for NOCCA’s Culinary Arts program and for local chefs. The courtyard is lined with picnic tables and a striking wooden shade structure — perfect for the warm days of spring and summer.


  • ~18,000 total square feet
  • ~4,000 square feet in the courtyard area alone
  • ~2,500 square feet in the Louisiana garden alone
