Getting married in a rustic setting has always been a dream of ours, and our event coordinator, Claudia at Black Creek Pioneer Village (BCPV) by Peter and Pauls definitely fulfilled that dream! Booking with BCPV by Peter and Pauls was an ease, but after booking, our coordinator(s) were changed at least 3 times. However, upon meeting with Claudia during our final details meeting, she really rose to the occasion and put our worries at ease. Not only did she honour everything that was discussed from our initial booking, but she was always very responsive in addressing any of our concerns. Claudia, thank you for your attentiveness and responsiveness, we can’t thank you enough for your help and coordination throughout. You helped us put our worries to ease since we did not have a wedding planner and had planned everything on our own. Also, we appreciated your patience and cooperation with our family appointed day of coordinator. Black Creek Pioneer Village is a beautiful event space and we are so happy that we had booked it! Most people we talked to remember visiting this venue as a field trip and who would have thought such a place could also be the perfect wedding venue. The outdoor buildings provided a beautiful landscape for our wedding photos and really brought that old world charm. If you are looking for something unique and romantic, this venue is the place for you. Given that our wedding was in November, unfortunately, we were not able to have our wedding outdoors, but BCPV has many locations on-site to choose from. We had gotten married in the Fisherville Church, this venue is perfect as it was intimate for our 100 guests, everyone was able to fit in the pews. We had a 5:00 pm wedding in November so the sun did set earlier than the summer months and the candles on the chandelier had to be lit. We also had to bring in some lanterns and had DIY some mason jars with fairy lights for extra lighting. However, this also brought the perfect ambiance for our rustic wedding theme. As for the cocktail hour, this was in the Victoria Room located in the main building of BCPV in the basement. The room fit everyone nicely and we had a few cruiser tables for our guest to mingle. We also DIY a Photo Booth using a few Instax mini cameras, unlimited film refills and props purchased from Amazon.ca. Our reception took place in the Canada West Room which is next to the Victoria Room. The Canada West Room was perfect for our intimate wedding and held 11 tables (8-9 people per table) comfortably. The rustic theme of the room was perfect for our wedding, and we loved that decor was very minimal, mostly consisting of the flowers and lanterns brought over from our ceremony in the Fisherville Church. Overall everything went without a hitch and we are super happy with our choice. We would definitely recommend Black Creek Pioneer Village by Peter and Pauls for any social or corporate event.
Amazing experience. A friend visiting Toronto went and raved so I finally checked it out and she was right. They have gone out of their way to help you really taste what life was like in pioneer times. Two hours not nearly enough. Planning to go for a whole day and really soak it all in. So much to experience!
No spoilers here! Visited Black Creek for their Halloween event, The Haunting at Black Creek. Our host, Jack, was amazing. They made sure to engage everyone from the group and really made it a fun experience. It was neat to learn the history of the building we were exploring. It wasn't as scary as it was made out to be on their website.
Old school but fun. Our daughter might drag her feet about going but once she is there she doesn't want to leave. She loves learning about how things were done in the old days. She loved the Halloween treasure hunt. She loves talking to the actors who learn their craft. She loves all the animals. It's fun mix for both adults and kids for learning. You can also have weddings and host functions there. And if you want to learn about the "mysterious" stone masons, check out their hidden room!
Pricing for all ages wasn't overly expensive. In our experience we probably needed more than one day to try and fit everything in. So much information to learn when standing in each house talking to the staff working there. Alone you need a good quantity of time just to take in the houses, learn how to do candle dipping, having your fortune told by Apple peels. Trying freshly baked gingerbread cookies and apple cider. I would recommend taking the kids to learn some fun history

The Pavilion is perfect for a semi-outdoor event! I always love attending events here and I even chose this venue for my wedding. It really is a lovely venue.

Having an outdoor event is always nice and even more so when you are surrounded by heritage homes and old time structures. There is a charm in holding one's event at Black Creek Pioneer Village, and even more so if you love animals. :) It's a lovely venue.

We loved being part of the unique culinary and heritage experience celebrating local food, businesses and history at Black Creek’s Local Food Festival!
Seeing the heritage educators demonstrating how rural families in the 19th century made a product similar to ours and how they prepared for the harvest was an awesome experience.
We're looking forward to being at Black Creek Pioneer Village time and time again.
