Support the Field Museum and the planet

Every event hosted at the Field Museum supports our work: fueling a journey of discovery across time to enable solutions for a brighter future rich in nature and culture.

We care deeply about our impact on the planet—our building is LEED Gold certified—and are eager to work alongside our event hosts to pursue their conservation goals, too. 

The Field Museum and our vendors offer many ways for event organizers to dial up their own sustainability efforts through eco-friendly bar packages, “water bottle free” events, floral arrangements using native plants, and more. 

Choose your desired impact—even a zero waste event—and we and our vendors will help you make it happen.

Customize your event

Our dedicated staff will work closely with you to create the event of your dreams, from choosing the right space and partnering with the best vendors to putting the finishing touches on your event decor and making sure everything goes off without a hitch.
