Our Venues


Spanish Ballroom

The historic Spanish Ballroom is Glen Echo Park's largest rental space. It can seat 450 guests, including space for dancing. With its high ceiling and spacious dance floor, it’s a perfect space for corporate events, school events, weddings and galas. With its gorgeous Art Deco design, it makes any event something to remember.




Bumper Car Pavilion

The Bumper Car Pavilion started out as one of Glen Echo Park's main attractions and is now one of its most popular rental venues. With its old amusement park charm, it’s a great place for weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, and company or family picnics. Enough space for 200 guests with a dance floor, it may be the perfect location for your next event.  




Ballroom Back Room

The Ballroom Back Room (formerly Ballroom Annex) is a more intimate -- and climate-controlled -- space. It’s an ideal space for bar/bat mitvahs, anniversary parties, family reunions, and adult birthday parties. A rental of the Back Room can be paired with one of our social dances through our Dine & Dance program (see below). Seats up to 80 guests.





Arcade Building

The Arcade Building is the Park's main building, located across from the historic Dentzel Carousel. With a selection of classrooms in two different sizes, it can accommodate many types of small gatherings. These classrooms are ideal for children's birthdays (see Art Parties below), meetings and luncheons.
