Last summer, we had the opportunity to visit Langdon Hall to experience the Friday Night Dinner Summer Barbeque Series; it was absolutely exquisite and a highlight of our summer. This is the most elegant and extravagant BBQ you’ll ever attend!

Now in its fourth year, the growing tradition pairs great chefs with local wine makers—and this year the lineup is exceptional. Beyond the delicious fare on offer (you can graze and feast for hours), what makes a Langdon Hall BBQ so special is the beautiful and serene setting. White tents line the lush green fields where guests can choose from a delicious assortment of seasonal salads, glistening local vegetables, locally farmed organic meats, cheeses, and a dessert table that could be easily described as divine. Lights delicately wind courtyard trees and you can either take in the view of the gorgeous Langdon Hall estate (Founded in 1898), the sprawling manicured grounds, or the twinkling stars.

The entire thing is gorgeous, and being just one hour outside of Toronto, you can reserve a table for a magical dining experience or stay the night! We can’t recommend this enough!!!
