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.
At the on-site Bar you may purchase wine and beer and at the concession stand, you may purchase non-alcoholic beverages, light snacks (potato chips, etc.) and ice-cream. There is also a Gift Shop on site.
