Oakwood's Daffodil Brunch Reservations Begin February 1st



The Friends of Oakwood will begin taking phone reservations on February 1st for their popular Daffodil Brunch. This event sells out quickly.

Reserve at 518-328-0090 with your seating choice, name, phone number, and how many people including children. Do not leave a credit card number. We will call for details.  Payment must be received in full within 10 days of your reservation call.  Mail checks or stop in to Oakwood 50 – 101st Street Troy, NY 12180. Limited to 100 people per seating. Children under 5 are free but must be included for seat count. For cancellations, a full refund will be made only if you call by April 10th before 4pm.

Feast on a sumptuous buffet in the ornate Gardner Earl Chapel. Enjoy a Mimosa or Bellini as an optional cash purchase. Take a ride in an antique auto courtesy of Jack Byrne. Weather permitting, some of our thousands of daffodils will be in bloom.
