Classic Country Barn Events

Grimstad-260A family owned authentic barn can be the perfect place for a rustic or country event venue.

We are a family farm event venue with an authentic barn and vintage farmhouse nestled in the rural outlay of Kent, WA, south of Seattle. The Grimstad barn has been transformed into a magical event venue strewn with charm to spare. The old weathered barn wood with its traditional red and white trim creates the perfect rustic backdrop to your event.

We are not an empty barn sitting out in the middle of a pasture needing a visionary to decorate us. While most of our weddings are held outside at the pond, under the trees or out in the lawn viewing the scenic landscape, our barn and farm are decorated with bits of antiques and decor that creates an entertaining venue for you and your guests.

Today events in a barn are taking place all over the country and offer people a chance to hold their event in a very personable and unique location. Just like farm weddings, a barn event can be dressed up or dressed down to match the style and decor of your event and offer endless charm.

Contact us to book your barn event, or for more information.
