We had so much fun last year we had to do it again! The Barn Party at Hale Farm & Village is back, May 6, 2017 from 6:00pm-10:00pm. Remember the good ol’ days when the class field trip to Hale Farm was the highlight of the school year? Dipping candles, wagon rides, pottery and just plain old down-home fun was the itinerary! Become a kid again and relive that field-trip on an adult level.

Hale Farm & Village is proud of our rich history in the community as an exceptional youth education destination, but we also understand that we are so much more. “The Barn Party invites adults back to the museum to experience it again and remember why they loved it so much as a child,” said Jason Klein museum Director. “Our programming has great depth and we want the public to understand we have fun experiences for adults, children and families alike.”

This year’s Barn Party will highlight the John A. McAlonan Carriage Manufactory built in 1851 and moved to Hale Farm in 1969. Guests at the party will experience great music, themed appetizers, an open bar and Ohio beer and wine tastings. Favorites such as wagon rides and historic craft demonstrations will be offered throughout the evening along with unique games of chance and a silent auction. Tickets are $75.00 per adult or gather friends and purchase a VIP reserved table for 10 guests at $1000. Visit our website for details or to order your tickets online, www.halefarm.org or call us 330-666-3711 x 1708. Experience Hale Farm & Village again for the first time!
