The MacKenzie-Childs Barn Sale is so much more than shopping — it’s a day of fun, community, and, of course, great deals! Don’t let the day end when your car is packed with Courtly Check boxes: drive the two short miles south to the heart of Aurora for a refreshing meal before the trek home. Here’s everything you need to know about dining in Aurora during the 2019 Barn Sale, which runs from Thursday, July 18 to Sunday, July 21.
Although all of our restaurants have an option to enjoy the summer weather, none have a view of the lake like 1833 Kitchen & Bar at the Aurora Inn. Catch a sunset on the veranda or cool off in our comfortable dining room while enjoying a farm-to-table Finger Lakes meal.
Breakfast: 7:00 a.m. — 10:00 a.m. every day; No reservations—first come, first served basis.
Closed between breakfast and lunch (10:00 – 11:00 a.m.).
Lunch: 11:00 a.m. — 2:30 p.m. every day; No reservations—first come, first served basis. (We will serve our lunch menu in place of brunch on Sunday.)
Join Chef Patrick Higgins and Host Grace Mattingly for a three-course lunch at Aurora Cooks! — our new demonstration kitchen! Pull up a stool and watch Chef Patrick preparing your food while Grace pours you a refreshing glass of wine. We’ve built a kitchen fit for a Courtly Check Queen, and we’d love for you to be a part of its Barn Sale debut!
Your $50 ticket includes a three-course lunch, a glass of wine or non-alcoholic beverage, and tax & gratuity. There are seatings each day of Barn Sale at 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m., 3:00 p.m., and 5:00 p.m.
Our all-in-one stop, the Village Market is perfect if you’re on the move or looking for a quick snack. The market offers packaged to-go meals, cold bottled drinks, organic coffee, fresh-baked treats, snacks, and more.
