Rentals at NOCCA


Need a lush outdoor space for a birthday party, wedding, film screening, or other event? The Garden 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!

The Garden features a large courtyard that can accommodate roughly 150 people standing, and at the opposite end of the Garden, 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
