Outdoor Events


The 650-acre natural setting at Bethesda Academy provides the optimal setting for a tented gala, an outdoor concert, a casual Low Country boil or an elegant seated dinner.Here is a quick overview of some of the outdoor event spaces available at Bethesda throughout the year:

Veazey Wedding5The Amphitheater

The Lady Huntingdon Amphitheater is a beautiful site for any function, as the marsh provides the backdrop for the stage. The main seating area can be set up with chairs only (theater style) or with tables and chairs for a dining experience.



Tribble Plaza2 Tribble Plaza

Tribble Plaza is an intimate outdoor courtyard, equipped with four wrought iron tables with eight chairs and two benches. The lawn area can also be incorporated into your event space.



Lawton-Burroughs PlazaBurroughs-Lawton Patio

The Burroughs-Lawton Patio is located across from The Burn and is an open patio space between Burroughs and Lawton Halls – two signature buildings on campus. The Patio is connected to Tribble Plaza by a walkway, and using both areas provides the flexibility of an L-shaped event with ease of flow for your guests.


     The Burn

Located in the center of campus, the Burn offers a perfect blend of open space, canopy coverage of live oaks, and a magnificent view of the marsh. The Burn can be tented (example shown) and electricity is available.





                                              The Pavilion


The Pavilion is located on the marsh. This screened and air-conditioned facility can seat 35 guests inside, with plenty of room outside. It has a rustic charm and is a great indoor/outdoor venue for cookouts and casual gatherings.
