If you are concerned that we may not be capable of catering your event.  We invite you to look at our current clientele.  We've been in business for over 30 years and have catered almost every type of event imaginable.  Talk with us and you will see our expertise will show and make you feel confident in hiring Fanfares. 




Sorry this took me so long to send.

I wanted you to know we were absolutely thrilled with the catering you provided for our African American History Signature event at the DuSable museum.  Many of our attendees raved about the food and service…insisting it was the best ever.  The presentation was exceptional and the staff a joy to work with.


It was a real pleasure working with both you and Erica.


Thank you again for your contribution in making this year’s event memorable.



Lyssa Cordingley, CMM
