The Birch Hill Pavilions

Albany, NY Premiere Outdoor Venue

From 450+ guests in the Grand Pavilion, to 150+ in the Pond Pavilion, and even an intimate gathering of 30+ in our Sunset Pavilion, our outdoor venues are the perfect spaces for couples looking for a natural picturesque setting. Whether you envision a casual BBQ surrounded by lush pines and open air, or a five-course served meal nestled along our charming pond, it’s no wonder why couples have been choosing these locations for their dream weddings for years.

Our covered pavilions offer the best of both worlds – day or night. Rent one, two or all three pavilions and celebrate your event outdoors with generous picnic seating. Stay safe from the elements with a roof to protect from the hot sun or light rain. Picnic seating can be replaced with traditional seating for more formal soirées. The grounds can accommodate one dozen to thousands of guests!

Let the Games Begin!

Outdoor Activities and Games
When you hold an event at one of Birch Hill Catering’s Pavilions, you can offer your guests any number of outdoor activities. Our volleyball courts, horseshoe pits, and playgrounds are surrounded by grassy lawns where guests can play Bocci Ball, Badminton, Croquet, or any other activity that you can imagine. Let your guests take a paddle boat out on the pond and enjoy Birch Hill’s resident birds, peacocks and swans.

Whether you are planning a casual or elegant event, with a small or large guest list, Birch Hill Catering can take your concept and create an outdoor event you and your guests will remember – on any budget.
