What to Wear

The Westben Barn is on a farm amongst glorious countryside. We suggest that you dress according to the weather and the rustic setting. Although paths and walkways are well maintained, practical footwear is recommended. Whether you dress up or dress more casually is entirely up to you. Both approaches are warmly welcomed.

During the summer, our air conditioning is by nature alone! On warm days, the sides of The Barn can be opened to allow the breeze to blow through, and on cooler or wet days, the sides are usually closed.

Temperatures are cooler during our fall and Christmas season. The Barn is not insulated.  Please take into account the weather and dress warmly with good winter footwear, especially for Christmas performances.

Parking

Parking

Westben is pleased to provide plenty of free parking on the property in a large field. Friendly attendants in the parking lot will assist you. The walk to The Barn is approximately 300 feet via scenic pathways. For those unable or uncomfortable with the walk, Westben provides a passenger drop-off zone, or valet parking.  At most concerts there is a golf cart for patrons who need a ride to The Barn.

Disabled Access

Disabled Access

A parking lot for disabled patrons is located closer to the Barn just beside the Ticket Booth. Please advise a parking attendant upon your arrival if you wish to use this disabled parking lot or the drop-off or valet services.

We ask that wheelchair users advise the Box Office when tickets are booked. We provide designated seating for wheelchairs and a wheelchair ramp at the northeast entrance to The Barn. It is recommended that wheelchair users be accompanied by an able-bodied companion. Ushers will be on hand to assist as necessary. A wheelchair-access portable toilet is located close to this entrance.

New Washrooms!

Westben now has a new air-conditioned trailer of flush washrooms! This washroom trailer is accessible on ground level but the doors are not wide enough for a wheelchair. There is a large and clean Blue Loo and an outdoor sink right behind The Barn that is wheelchair accessible.

Concessions and Picnic Facilities

Concessions and Picnic Facilities

The Westben Meadow is a lovely place to picnic before a concert. There are several tables, umbrellas and of course, plenty of grass for a blanket!
