A gathering space in downtown Raleigh...

Welcome to the Duncan-Giersch Center, a gathering space in downtown Raleigh...

We provide the perfect off-site venue for business meetings or intimate private gatherings. We are located in historic downtown Raleigh. We are just one block from the North Carolina State Capital, at the corners of Hillsborough and McDowell Streets. Our open and elegant meeting space is a rare find in downtown Raleigh. We invite you to share it with us.

The Duncan-Geirsch Center is adjacent to The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd. The Center serves at the Parish Life Center for the church but is also open to the greater community for use. We often host wedding receptions for couples marrying at Good Shepherd, however, we also are host to a wide array of secular events including music recitals, medical symposia, receptions for weddings held elsewhere, along with business meetings for commercial and government interests.

Please explore here what we have to offer for your event and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about how the Duncan-Giersch Center can be a part of your future plans.
