Frequently Asked Questions

Discover the best places to host a memorial in Philadelphia

Memorial services give people a chance to grieve, connect, and say their goodbyes to the dearly departed. Since they are a sensitive time for all involved it's important to choose a venue that supports their needs. One that's beautiful in an understated way, with a dining room, eulogies, speeches, and other memorial events.
Some of the best venues for a memorial service are funeral homes and memorial event centers. Typically you'll find the memorial venue right next to the funeral home. That way, guests don't have to travel far from one event to the next. The staff running the service are organized, efficient, and provide everything from event set up to catering if you wish.

Memorial event spaces in Philadelphia

Traditionally you hold a memorial service at a church venue, funeral home, or an outdoor area if the home of the deceased isn't an option. Local churches have spacious interiors where you can set up flowers and give people room to converse. They also have kitchens for any food preparation needed as well as community meeting rooms, stages, and other amenities. If people want to give a eulogy or general remarks, be sure to choose a church with a stage and microphones.
Is lunch with family and friends a part of the memorial service? Most Philadelphia restaurants cater to private events of all kinds. Depending on the size of the event, you can reserve a private dining room for the memorial lunch. Or you can book the entire venue if you want to make it exclusive. As a major US city Philadelphia restaurants cover the entire range of culinary options. From classic Southern cuisine to vegan dining, you're sure to find options to please any crowd. Or you can choose an event space and have a catering service provide menu or buffet opinions for the memorial luncheon.

Locations for a memorial service in Philadelphia

You don't have to choose a venue that caters exclusively to funerals and memorials to hold an event. Any space with the right amenities will work. Look into any of Philadelphia's event centers, party halls, banquet halls, or auditoriums. If you want your memorial service to be held in an elegant venue, Philadelphia is the right city for you. There are numerous historic venues to choose from, including local museums, art galleries, community centers, and more.
Philadelphia mansions are a good choice as these venues are spacious yet offer plenty of room for people to have private conversations. Mansions have large grounds for outdoor ceremonies, dining areas to hold the memorial lunch, private screening rooms for remembrance films, spaces for a eulogy, and more besides.
