Plan your next event at the Dixon Gallery & Gardens. Whether you are looking for a unique location for an office meeting, an elegant venue for a wedding reception or rehearsal dinner, or a stylish space to host a special party, our facilities offer the opportunity to experience the lush gardens and stunning artwork for which we are known. We offer two facilities, the Hughes Pavilion and the Winegardner Auditorium, either of which we can recommend based on your event’s needs.
Whether you would like to host a cocktail party, celebrate your wedding, or escape from the office for an off-site meeting, our two venues serve as beautiful and unique spaces for a variety of events.
For a closer look at our two venues and property, please take our virtual tour, gifted to the Dixon by Simply Delicious Caterings in 2014 as part of a special event. Please note that that the tent frame shown at the Hughes Pavilion is a rental, and certain areas of the property have changed since then (including new carpet in the Auditorium in 2015 and the Hughes in 2016, new seating outside the main museum entrance in 2015, and semi-regular paint color changes in the Catmur Foyer).
To see a dollhouse view and 3D tour of the Hughes Pavilion, please view our Memphis Wedding Venue 3D listing, gifted to us in 2017 through the generous sponsors of this project.
