Events at Avon Old Farms Hotel

Beautiful picturesque setting in Avon, CT

Picture the perfect New England venue. You welcome your guests with a cocktail reception that sets the tone for the events to come. Exchange vows in a garden gazebo or a pergola surrounded by manicured grounds, colorful flowerbeds and a tranquil stream. Afterward, celebrate the night away with dinner and dancing in our Towpath Ballroom.
