What to Expect

You’ve got a lot to think about, and one of the first things on your list is finding a venue. Our Event Sales team is here to help you and make the process go as smoothly as possible.

We’ll work closely with you to determine the best venue for you and direct you to our extensive catering list that gives you many options to fit both your culinary and budget needs.


The World Forestry Center does not have on-site catering, however, we have established good relationships with many competent caterers in the area who are familiar with our facilities, rules, recycling, and cleanup requirements.

Renters are required to use one of the following preferred caterers to provide food and beverage services--you may not bring in your own food. Your caterer may also help you with linens and other rental equipment if desired.
