Waldorf School at Moraine Farm is located on the North Shore in Beverly, Massachusetts within the beautiful grounds of historic Moraine Farm. While only 25 minutes north of Boston and conveniently situated off Route 128, driving down the dirt road to Waldorf School at Moraine Farm’s campus immediately takes you away from the city and into a beautiful natural setting. Designed by renowned landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted in the 1800s, the grounds are breathtaking every day of the year.

A variety of indoor and outdoor spaces are available to rent for private events, weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, birthdays, anniversaries, club meetings, musical concerts, parties, and much more.

Following are the specific rental options with details enclosed. For outdoor gatherings, The Quad, The Court, The Field, and Pizza Oven are available to rent from mid June May through late August.

The Field

$80 per hour
$30 cleaning fee

AVAILABILITY — Mid-June to late August.

A large open grassy area surrounded by magnificent trees, this quintessential area beckons for a casual outdoor event with a naturally picturesque backdrop (your photos will look gorgeous from every angle). Set the tone as guests drive from the main road down a long windy dirt driveaway entering upon your event space. After they park their cars, they make a short walk down a path through a small wooded area. Everyone immediately feels at ease in the natural setting, and at the same time, are excited for events to unfold.

Design the most charming outdoor wedding with a relaxed reception to follow under a rented tent (or under the stars). The surrounding grounds offer a variety of spots to capture amazing pictures. Or are you craving a BBQ-themed picnic event with coordinating gingham tablecloths and mason jar drinks? Perhaps an outdoor music theatre more your style. The Field welcomes all of your inspired ideas and creative visions.

For those that embrace the perfectly imperfect elements of nature (i.e. unmanicured lawn and trees that aren’t groomed by hand), The Field makes an ideal setting for all sorts of festivities. The abundance of trees and woods provides a private space to fully unplug from the “busyness” of everyday life. We’ll be delighted to work with you on designing the experience of your dreams.

There is no built-in lighting on The Field, but portable electricity can be provided at no extra cost. All custom lighting is the responsibility of the renter and must be handled by a licensed professional. If onsite catering is needed, a separate tented space can be set up out of the way in an inconspicuous spot near The Field, or use of the nearby school indoor facilities can be arranged. Portable electricity is available
