Soak up the sunshine at outdoor event venues in New York City

From spacious parks to lively rooftop decks, there are so many different outdoor event spaces to choose from in New York City. Central Park is one of the most popular outdoor event venues in the city, and locals and visitors alike host everything from weddings to concerts there. Other options for public outdoor event spaces in NYC with grass include attractions like Bryant Park, which is known for its beautiful gardens, while Union Square Park is famous for its central location and diverse selection of restaurants and shops.
As for private outdoor event venues, the five boroughs are packed with stunning spaces like year-round rooftop decks, backyards featuring a swimming pool, and lush gardens perfect for a marriage proposal or baby shower. While weather is often a wild card when planning an outdoor event, many of these venue rentals offer hybrid indoor/outdoor access, so your party can easily move inside for any reason. Plus, tents or canopies are typically available for use in case of excessive rain or sun exposure. Whether you’re planning a kids birthday party, graduation party, performance, or any other type of event, you’ll find plenty of versatile outdoor event venues in NYC.

Explore a variety of large outdoor event venues in Brooklyn

Brooklyn is home to sprawling urban oases, rooftop terraces, and other flexible spaces available to rent for your event. When looking for outdoor event spaces in Brooklyn, it’s important to start your search early. This can give you plenty of time to compare venues and find the perfect place for your event. If you're hosting a large outdoor concert, for instance, you'll want to make sure that the space can accommodate the size of your audience.
Second, take into account the location of the venue. For example, if you're hosting an intimate wedding in Bushwick, you may want to consider an outdoor venue that's centrally located and easily accessible by public transportation. Finally, think about what amenities the venue offers. Does it have enough chairs and tables? Heat lamps? A stage? Make sure that the outdoor space has everything you need to make your event a success, whether it’s a college graduation party or a rehearsal dinner.

With careful planning and attention to detail, you can make any outdoor event unique and memorable.
