Hear ye! Hear ye! Come one. Come all. The spring open house at The Nagel Emporium at Abbey Farms takes place on Sunday, April 30, 1 – 4 p.m. The venue is located at 2855 Hart Road in Aurora.

Welcome to Abbey Farms!

Grab a friend or two, tour the venue, and take in the sweeping views of the surrounding grounds. Our rustic-chic barn venue is in its third year of hosting romantic wedding receptions, stylish corporate events, “fun” fundraisers and other special happenings.

According to Wendy Felder, the event gives you the chance to check out a variety of resources at one time. Wendy is the venue and resource manager at Abbey Farms.

“The Nagel 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 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!”
