At Abbey Gardens, our mission is to re-green a former gravel pit into a community destination.
Through restoration and reforestation projects, a market garden rooted (literally!) in nutrient rich produce, public trails, our retail space The Food Hub, and our programming and events calendar, our goal is to establish ourselves as a gathering place for our community. Hosting events and festivals is an important part of how we serve our neighbours, and we can’t wait to hear the sounds of live music and entertainment drifting across our 380 acres!
Food & Drink
Some of our events feature appetizers from our kitchen team at The Food Hub, and we have refreshments available for purchase at our snack bar. In addition, Into The Blue pizza truck is located by the parking area and features wood fired pizza.
There are two accessible parking spots located right in front of the tent, and room to turn around for guest drop off. Event parking is located at Haliburton Solar and Wind, across from the tent space, or at Haliburton Highlands Brewing (depending on their event schedule).
The marquee event tent is the perfect backdrop for our event calendar, and it could be the right fit for your private event as well! From weddings to fundraising galas, and everything in between, contact us to learn more about hosting your next event at Abbey Gardens!
