Old-fashioned trolleys for the ultimate historic experience


There is no place like the Art Factory!  No fancy catering hall, country club or rustic barn can compare. Art Factory CREATED a new one-of-a-kind, avant-garde wedding program!  We utilize our experience building movie sets and hosting major film productions to Create your personalized Industrial Chic wedding Experience.

"As I'm in a sorority I've been to a dozen of my sisters' weddings the past couple of years.  I wouldn't be able to tell you who got married where - all the halls look the same.  But they're going to remember MY wedding." Sara, Art Factory Bride.

This is NOT your parents' catering hall.

A City within a City

Art Factory is a City-within-a City; nearly 300,000 sf of historic factory loft space on a 5-acre, 21 building campus located 12 miles from NYC. Art Factory has adapted this 180 year old former rope factory which lies adjacent to the new Paterson Great Falls National Historic Park to a vibrant campus used for creative business, community, shopping, dining and events.  Visit the Art Factory to browse our retail shops, dine in our cafe, scout for your film or photo shoot, meet our many creative vendors or check out our amazing wedding lofts and meet with our design team. 

Make a Day of it!

Walk through our gate straight into the  Paterson Great Falls National Park or board one of our old-fashioned trolleys for the ultimate historic experience! Witness where George Washington, Alexander Hamilton and Lafayette paused for a picnic lunch during the Revolutionary war and be awed by the second highest waterfall east of the Mississippi.  Great for hiking, strolling, picnicking,  and learning about the City of Paterson - the first planned industrial city in the United States founded by Alexander Hamilton himself!
