Not only is our setting beautiful, but our building has been designed with amenities that will delight event planners, caterers, and the mother of the bride.  From elegant receptions for more than 1500 guests to intimate fireside dining for 100, The Jefferson offers distinctive event spaces overlooking an eight acre lake. Our 18,000 sq ft venue includes a 7,200 sq ft column-free Grand Hall along with two additional 2,500 sq ft rooms suitable for wedding ceremonies, receptions, formals, or parties.  With a built-in stage, a 40-foot long bar, stunning see-thru gas fireplace, spacious Bride's room, and two catering kitchens, we are the ideal setting for your next event.  The finishes throughout the building include a variety of reclaimed materials that add warmth and historic character to our venue.

We are located just five miles from the University of Mississippi and the Square and offer easy bus turnaround along with parking space for more than 650 cars in our main parking lot.  Our satelite parking lot holds more than 500 cars.  In August 2016 The Jefferson received “qualified resort" designation by the MS Department of Alcohol Beverage Control.  Full Bar Service is available. 

The Jefferson takes its name from the fictional town in many William Faulkner novels and short stories.  Contact us for a tour of Oxford's premier event venue.
