Open House, Expo Planned at Abbey Farms: The Emporium

Abbey Farms announces that their annual open house will take place on Sunday, April 14, at Abbey Farms: The Emporium, from 1 to 4 p.m. Located at 2855 Hart Road in Aurora, this rustic-chic barn venue is in its fifth year of hosting wedding receptions, fundraisers, corporate outings, and other events. Abbey Farms specializes in creating personalized events that will wow guests.

According to Wendy Felder, venue and resource manager at Abbey Farms, the event gives the public the opportunity to tour the venue and surrounding grounds.

“The Emporium Annual Open House is for everyone and anyone who would like to learn more about hosting an event here,” Felder stated. “Admission is free, and it is a great opportunity to see the beautiful venue and its stunning surrounding landscape and outside spaces.

“Whether you are just starting to plan, thinking about planning, or well into your plans, this is for you,” she continued. “Everyone is welcome!”

Adam Voirin, chief operations officer, further commented on the flexibility of the venue space.

“Each of our wedding receptions is as different as the couples who book with us,” Voirin explained. “If vintage and country is your sweet spot, our reclaimed barn board walls are a perfect backdrop. If your tastes are more sophisticated, upgrade the elegance with perfectly chosen décor and floral arrangements.

“Our wedding partners and preferred vendors will expertly guide you toward achieving the desired atmosphere,” he added. “An event planner is included with a booking, which helps ensure your planning process is simplified.”

Upon arrival, attendees will be greeted with champagne and Abbey Farms’ famous apple cinnamon donuts. Besides touring the venue, attendees can visit with wedding ceremony partners and preferred vendors while enjoying light refreshments and catering samples. Vendors will include transportation specialists, hotel partners, ceremony and design planners, caterers, bakeries, florists, décor specialists, hotels, photographers, DJs, and more.

Although wedding receptions are the focus of the open house, anyone considering an event can find answers to their questions.  This might include corporate events and fundraisers, along with family reunions and graduations.

All attendees will have the opportunity to register for an hourly raffle giveaway of a Picnic Movie Night for Two. The Picnic Movie Night for Two includes: two Pumpkin Daze tickets, two tickets to a movie night with s’mores and a private firepit, $20 gift certificate for concessions, six apple cider donuts, a bottle of wine (from the Abbey Farms preferred wine list), and more.

Pre-registration is suggested by visiting, or attendees can register at the door. For more venue information, visit or call (630) 966-7775, ext. 3.
