For the most intimate event of 20 people or less, the Mayer Garden provides a lovely desert garden setting complete with a canopy of trees, a tiered waterfall fountain and James Waddell’s sculpture Mother and Child.
This picturesque setting has lovely flowers in bloom year-round and a softly flowing fountain in a sunken courtyard of red brick, shaded by overhanging trees. This space includes grassy areas on both sides, which make this space ideal for up to 200 people.
For groups of 250 or less, the overpass provides a very open, beautifully tailored melding of decorative, majestic fountains amidst several different kinds of mature trees. Robert Indiana’s iconic LOVE sculpture is located on the lawn adjacent to Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts.
The Fountain Stage is the perfect location for larger groups of up to 1,500.

Please be advised that seasonal staging and canopy may also be in place November through April for this location.
