To Our Community,

It is with heartfelt sadness we announce the closing of a mainstay in our community The Wexford Restaurant who’s been serving up hearty breakfasts over the past 63 years.

Many of us have fond memories over the years of getting together and sharing a meal and enjoying some lighthearted conversations with many of the regular staff and customers who called The Wexford home.

On behalf of the Wexford Heights BIA, we thank the Kiriakou family for their years of serving the community, you will be truly missed. More information.


The health and safety of our guests, volunteers and employees is always our top priority. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 we had to cancel our 2020 Taste of Lawrence Festival. Stay tuned for more information for our 2021 Taste of Lawrence Festival!
