Historic Charm for Your Special Event!
“The DCA’s formal garden and historic rooms served as the perfect backdrop for an intimate summer evening cocktail reception. Many of our guests remarked what a lovely and unexpected surprise the beautifully maintained garden and house were for our gathering. The staff was courteous and willing to work with us to make sure the evening was elegant and enjoyable.”
“KEYS held its fall fundraiser at the DCA. It was our first experience working with the DCA and hopefully it won't be our last. The space was great and we lucked out with a beautiful fall evening to be outside for cocktails. I would definitely recommend using them for a special event!”
— Kids Empowered by Your Support (KEYS) Music
“Our guests had wonderful things to say both about the enchanting venue and the lovely grounds.”
— The Monks of Norcia
“Absolutely loved the grounds and venue of the DCA. Found this on a whim after having to change venues unexpectedly, and ended up LOVING the DCA more than our original venue. We had a beautiful ceremony in the garden, and enjoyed all of the various areas of the house for cocktail hour, and our reception.”
“The DCA was a beautiful location to host our Kentucky Derby fundraiser and it was a perfect night to truly enjoy both the outdoor and indoor venue. Your contribution to the event was an integral part of our efforts.”
— PHILIPPA DOYLE AND MARISOL GRAVELLE-BUSH (DERBY CO-CHAIRS) AND MARLEY THACKRAY (PRESIDENT) YOUNG WOMEN’S LEAGUE OF NEW CANAAN
“Great people, great place! Thanks so much again to the DCA for making our special night what we totally hoped for.”
— Ozden and Erdem
