• About Us

    Dear Customer,

    Thank you for considering Celebrations Banquet Facility to be the host for your event. Celebrations is a privately owned Event Venue that is owned and operated by John & Laurie Morse. Celebrations was built by us to fill a need for a premium wedding reception and ceremony venue that is much more than “4-walls” in a city environment. At Celebrations you can enjoy all of the comforts of an ordinary event venue, but with much, much more. You can get married in our custom gazebo while your guests are seated on a large flagstone patio under a premium white frame tent overlooking the beautiful hillsides of the Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York. During the reception your guests can step onto our 1600 square foot deck to admire the beautiful views and manicured grounds, or stroll our 22 acres and enjoy a summers evening New York sunset.

    Celebrations opened in 1999 and has seen over 15 years of continued growth and changes. While our competitors invest more and more into advertising, we have invested our money into continually improving our facility and into you, our customers. We believe that spending more money on better ingredients, better chef’s and experienced staff members will give us a reputation that is second to none in the Ithaca and Finger Lakes area and will ultimately help our business grow. And guess what... It’s working!! We have hundreds of thank you letters and comments from past customers and their guests telling us their event was the best they have ever attended due to our attention to detail and quality, and the efforts of us and our staff. Ask around, talk to others who have attended events at Celebrations and you’ll hear for yourself why Celebrations is the premier Wedding venue in the Finger Lakes region!

    Thank You…

    John & Laurie Morse
