ABOUT SILK FACTORY

Newburgh's Latest Entertainment Venue

Silk Factory is located in the heart of historic Newburgh. Originally constructed in 1910, our venue was used as a factory and through the process called “throwing silk,” silk cocoons were unraveled and woven into silk thread hence the building’s name, Silk Factory. 

An 8000 sq ft event facility which includes a 4000 sq ft restaurant on the 1st floor, an elevator, a 4000 sq ft banquet hall on the 2nd floor with almost 3,000 sq ft for seating, a 320 sq ft raised performance stage and an additional almost 600 sq ft bridal suite/ green room.
Both floors have amazing stages equipped with all pro front and back line sound equipment and livestreaming multi camera video. The second floor larger stage is also equipped with additional professional lighting.
The first floor restaurant area is set up to seat 125 people comfortably. The second floor can seat up to 200 people at tables, 450 people without tables.

The 7 year restoration of this space paid the closest attention to detail and attempted to keep as much of the original architecture as possible. The end result is an elegant yet edgy, rich space filled with carefully curated antique furniture and art pieces sourced from all over the world.
