Facility Rentals

Host your next event on our beautiful 800-acre campus! 

McDonogh School rents its facilities all year round and has an array of indoor and outdoor venues of all sizes for parties, weddings, conferences, meetings, sporting events, arts performances, and more. Availability depends on the school’s use of the space—and other campus-related activities— at the requested time.
