About The Barn
The Barn is an all-season Wedding and Event venue, located just 20 minutes west of Kanata, ON. The fully air-conditioned facility has two floors, each with a capacity of 120 persons and an outdoor two-tiered patio with a capacity of 135.
Upstairs, in the ‘hayloft’ you’ll find tall ceilings with exposed beams, hardwood floors and soft lighting by carriage and string lights, creating a warm romantic atmosphere. Enjoy sitting by the beautiful stone fireplace. The hayloft provides easy access to the outdoor patio.
On the main floor, the ‘Tack Room’ features a grand stone, wood-burning fireplace. There is access to the patio from this room as well.
The Barn is licensed by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario.
Julia Foley worked at the “Old Barn” when it originally opened in the early 90’s. Back then, it was a pub downstairs and a formal dining room upstairs. It was a popular destination offering great food and local entertainment. The “Old Barn” has opened it doors to other restauranteurs and many musicians over the years. When Julia launched her own event planning business – LOVE Local Ottawa Valley Events – she toured the Ottawa Valley in search of venues to add to her portfolio. The “Old Barn” appeared to be a great location, so she did some research and found out it was looking for a new start.
Julia is currently in her fourth year managing everything at The Barn.
