The Longfellows Wedding Show showcases Longfellows Restaurant as the ideal wedding venue. It provides the setting for over 40 wedding professionals who will be present to offer their expertise to brides and engaged couples. “We strive to offer an intimate show and an enjoyable experience. We limit the number of vendors in each category so it’s not overwhelming for our brides and grooms. Our goal is to provide engaged couples the opportunity to meet and personally talk to the vendors as they enjoy the unique ambiance our venue offers,” said Rebekah Foster, Special Events and Catering Manager.
Longfellows was originally the site of two enormous dairy barns on the first farm in New York State believed to use the process of pasteurization. In 1995, Longfellows Restaurant was established and quickly became a perennial favorite with a reputation of distinction. Longfellows’ exceptional and dedicated staff and management strive to make every experience with them a memorable one. In the words of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow:
“That the feast might be more joyous, That the time may pass more gaily, And the guests be more contented.”
Longfellows has adopted this maxim as their daily mission and they make the pleasure of their guests their ultimate satisfaction. Longfellows is located at 500 Union Avenue, Saratoga Springs and is open daily at for dinner seven days a week. They also offer offsite catering “to meet your every need.”
