Indoor Event Rentals

The Forest Preserves’ Volunteer Resource Center (The VRC) has long been an enjoyable meeting location and can be rented out for private parties, weddings, birthdays, communions, baptismal, and organizational meetings. It features an amply spaced room with a stage and an outdoor stone patio separated by a row of classic French doors. This room can accommodate up to 100 guests and has a smaller class room (40 guests) nearby which can be configured for a variety of uses as well.

This space is accented by beautiful high-wooden ceilings, superb acoustics and wood burning fireplace and is hidden in the Forest Preserves of Cook County overlooking the Edgebrook golf course.
