Corporate Event on the Front Porch

Corporate Event on the Front Porch


If you're looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of downtown or are planning a business trip to the Charleston area, the Charleston Tea Plantation is the perfect venue to host a corporate getaway. You could have your annual business meeting dinner on the Front Porch of the Plantation or host important clients at a catered lunch under the shade of our open air Pavilion. Your guests will be taken aback by the beauty and charm of our scenic grounds. Events can encompass as much or as little of the Plantation experience as you'd like.  Either way, just being on the exclusive grounds of the Charleston Tea Plantation is guaranteed to be an experience in its own. 

Our Pavilion, located in the tranquil tea fields, can be configured to your specifications to ensure the success of your Corporate Event. The venue can accommodate roughly 112 people at 48" square tables or 80 at 60" rounds.  The surrounding area can easily be tented to create additional covered space for your guests.

The front porch of the Plantation Gift Shoppe offers another functional area to set up a dinner meeting, cocktail reception or buffet. Square tables can be used to comfortably seat 64 people or 60" rounds could be used to accommodate about 56. The Live Oaks surrounding this space are shady and inviting, providing plenty of ideal and picturesque places for additional tables and seating. The Trolleys are available for shuttling guests around the Plantation or giving a tour through the tea fields while explaining the farming and harvesting process. This Trolley Tour is narrated by William Barclay Hall, the founder of American Classic Tea. The Factory Tour, narrated by Mr. and Mrs. Bigelow via flat screen televisions, offers a glimpse into the production of our 9 varieties of Charleston Tea Plantation Tea.  If desired, these Tours can be incorporated into your Corporate Event, making it not only a fun and enjoyable occasion for all, but also a one-of-a-kind educational experience!

The Charleston Tea Plantation is the perfect place to entertain clients or to celebrate the success of your current business.  You can make your event as formal or as informal as you would like.  You could host a seated dinner for clients on our front porch or hold a company picnic in the fields surrounding the Pavilion.  Nonetheless, let us help make your next Corporate Event a unique and memorable one!
