Knox House for Rent

This year’s Decorators' Show House was held in East Aurora at the Knox Summer Estate at Knox Farm State Park. While touring the home over the weekend, I learned that the very impressive main house is now available for private party rentals, including weddings. All profits made during these private events will fund improvements to the house that follow historic preservation guidelines and state requirements.

Because it is now run by New York State, the park has rules and regulations to follow that will carry over to your event. For example, caterers must be insured, liquor permits are required per event, and the curfew in place is 11pm. This is no different than if you were to get married at any other State Park. Although it may seem like a lot to deal with, you will have the peace of mind that your event will go smoothly because you have taken all of the proper precautions that are sometimes neglected at private functions, plus you will have qualified vendors you can trust.

Although the details are still being worked out on their website, there is plenty of information to get you started on your private party. You can visit http://www.friendsofknoxpark.org/house_lease/index.html (source for photos above) for more information. If you visited the Show House or saw the photos in the Buffalo News (source for photo below), you will need to take another look after this weekend when the show ends. After the decorators have removed their belongings from the house, you will get a better idea of what the space can look like for your event.
