About Sonnenberg Gardens & Mansion State Historic Park

Whether strolling through its flower-filled gardens, picnicking under its majestic trees or touring its magnificent mansion, Sonnenberg Gardens and Mansion State Historic Park is a very special place. The 50-acre estate is one of just two public gardens in all of the New York State Parks System. A serene respite just blocks away from downtown Canandaigua, Sonnenberg is a gift to the community from Frederick Ferris and Mary Clark Thompson. Sonnenberg offers two primary venues for private events: an indoor facility (our Carriage House) that can seat approximately 72 or fewer guests when you plan to include dancing at your event, or outdoor gatherings staged under a beautiful curved end white framed tent for larger groups of 70 - 250 or more. For smaller private parties consider our beautiful wine center. With Sonnenberg’s inclusive site/service packages, you are free from much of the stress of planning, so you can concentrate on enjoying every minute.
