Have a patriotic party

The Flag House and Star-Spangled Banner Museum is a great place to hold your next event. Located in the heart of Baltimore, it is convenient with an abundant amount of parking.

Weddings, receptions, meetings, parties and other special events can easily be held at the Flag House and Star-Spangled Banner museum. The main lobby is 1,500 square feet and can hold approximately 110 seated guests or 175 standing guests. The 2nd floor Gallery is 3,000 square feet and can hold approximately 275 seated guests or 300 to 350 standing guests. Also, the Flag House garden is a great place to have an outdoor party. According to the Flag House Web site, the tent size for the garden is 30-by-40-foot. Still not as big as the Star-Spangled Banner flag. An open flow can be created between the garden, tent, lobby and orientation theatre when all the doors are open.

Christy Dennis, the public relations director, said, “There is an approved list of caterers on our Web site and we have had great success with them in the past.” Christy suggests that you look on the Flag House Web site for pictures, pricing and other additional information. If you are interested in holding your next event at the Flag House and Star-Spangled Banner Museum you should call the Special Events Department at (410) 837-1793 or send an e-mail to cdennis@flaghouse.org.
