Family Events

Planning a picnic, family reunion, graduation or wedding rehearsal?

Then consider holding it at the Ararat Center.

The spacious grounds, located only 30 miles south of Albany, NY, offers the perfect space for any outdoor event. Visitors can enjoy barbecues under the spacious pavilion, or enjoy baseball and soccer on the vast open fields. There is even a small playground for children just to name a few outdoor recreational activities offered at the center.

Or, looking to hold an indoor gathering? No problem. We have smaller common space rooms or even larger areas such as the recreation hall, dining room or pavilion classrooms where family and friends can gather for classes, talent shows, arts & craft exhibits and so much more.

We also offer a wide variety of accommodations from small cottage lodging, to hotel and motel type rooms. The property is anchored by several different buildings which can house up to 140 people in a variety of room types. Some buildings include air-conditioning and heat, as well as private baths and cable television.
