Host Your Event at Gaia House

Many people come to Gaia House's weekly programs and special events. But did you know that you can host your own events at Gaia House too?

As a hospitality center, Gaia House is here to serve as a venue for your meetings, community classes, and other events. Several community meetings happen here on a weekly basis, but there are still plenty of times throughout the week when you can reserve part or all of the building. We keep our Saturdays available so that people like you can host private functions such as parties, reunions, workshops, retreats, weddings, and more at Gaia House. We also have a video projector and sound system (including microphone and mixer amp) available to meet your audio and visual needs.
