What We Provide
Step back in time and hold your next function in a turn-of-the-century barn! This landmark is situated in the community of Shawnessy in a 17-acre green space that includes a playpark, tennis courts, and ball diamonds. We have everything you need to plan your wedding, company BBQ, your community event, or Christmas Party.
This rustic barn was built in the early 1900s and refurbished in the late '70s as a community centre. The Shawnessy Barn is the last standing barn within the city limits of Calgary that is still usable. Its cedar walls surround the most beautiful fireplace, which roars its warmth in the winter, and lends to a quiet comfort in the summer.
The huge sliding glass doors open onto the outdoor patio and the green space providing the indoor/outdoor experience. The ambiance is already there...all you need is your friends!
The seating capacity is 115 people.
