From 1848, The Felt Factory was home to the Frogmoore Mills. The adjacent Frankford Creek used to power the factory’s machinery. For years it was one of the few felt mills located in the United States and its fabric goods were shipped all across the country. From the 1920s, it was operated by the Philadelphia Felt Company, until Romano’s Catering gained ownership in the 1980s. Since then, it has been a premier destination for weddings and events in the Philadelphia area.

Best Venue Ever!
The Felt Factory is definitely the place to get married! We looked at other venues, but we fell in love with the Felt Factory. Other venues felt too much like a hotel or conference room, and they didn't provide a personable experience like the Felt Factory did when we looked at venues.
We also couldn't beat their pricing. The Felt Factory offered great packages to meet all budgets.
Our wedding day was FABULOUS! The staff took really great care of us and all of our guests, the food was incredible, definitely tasted like a 5 star restaurant! The staff even used some of my centerpieces as decorations for the ceremony since I forgot to provide ceremony decorations. This venue knows their weddings, you won't be disappointed if you book with the Felt Factory!Sent on 12/20/2019
