3. What is the venue’s capacity?


Our barn was previously a dairy barn and thus, it is spacious. For 2019-2020, we offer the main
level barn (200+ guests), the loft and the upper level (100+ guests) which can easily
accommodate up to 300-400 guests. For smaller weddings though, you can choose to utilize the
whole space or specific spaces only. The venue can be transformed to meet any couple's vision.

Yes, we have wheelchair accessibility.

Included in the rental rate are two standard portable toilets and a hand-washing station. Other
luxury washroom facilities can be brought in for your event at your cost.


6. What if it rains and I cannot conduct my ceremony outside?


In event of poor weather, you will have a plan b, which should allow for your ceremony
to move into the barn.


7. Is the venue air conditioned?


No. Rustic barn venues are rarely, if ever, able to be air conditioned. If heat is a concern,
large fans can be rented very reasonably.

The temperature in the barn is ambient with the outside. We operate June to mid-October,
outside of these months, the temperatures are too variable. If cold is a concern, large
propane heaters can be rented very reasonably.

Not for 2019-2020 however we have plans to add this to our rental packages in the near future.

 


10. Where do my guests park?


We have a large parking area, parallel to the Barn.


11. Do you allow pets?


Yes! We’re huge animal lovers at Kylan Barn, but for everyone’s peace of mind we
ask that they only are a part of the ceremony and pictures- not the reception. If
you are interested, we do require you to purchase event insurance. Please keep in
mind that vicious breeds are not covered under event insurance.

 
12. Can we set up yard games?


Yes, we have a special area designated for that.

Yes, if there is no municipal fire ban. You are responsible to bring your own firewood.

be at that time. We ask that all guests be off the premises by 1:00am.

Smoking is not allowed in our barn or on our property. This includes vaping/e-cigarettes. It
is only permitted in designated smoking areas outside the barn, and all waste must be put
in the proper disposal receptacles.

alternatives.

Yes, but children under the age of 16 must be supervised at all time.

the venue. If you decide to proceed with us, we will complete a Rental Contract at which time a
