The Red Barn at Hampshire College

Rustic, quaint, and full of character, the Red Barn at Hampshire College is a venue with authentic New England charm. Built in 1820, the Red Barn has original wide-panel flooring and post-and-beam structure, and has served as an elegant yet natural venue space for special events and wedding ceremonies and receptions for over 40 years.

Fully equipped with a heating and cooling ventilation system, the Red Barn hosts events year-round. While the barn is often reserved during the academic year for Hampshire College student, staff, and faculty events, the space is also available to host a variety of celebrations coordinated by non-Hampshire guests. Events that have taken place at the Red Barn have included bat mitzvahs, milestone birthday celebrations, memorial ceremonies, retirement parties, baby and bridal showers, wedding ceremonies and receptions, corporate networking breakfasts, holiday celebrations, and much more.

Planning an event at the Red Barn is simple with the expertise provided by the event services and summer programs office, which will also ensure everything runs smoothly on the day of your event. We invite you to schedule a tour of the space and inquire about available dates for your next special occasion. We look forward to creating a unforgettable event with you!

We are happy to meet with you in person and provide a tour of our facility. Appointments may be sheduled Monday-Friday between the hours of 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., with the last appoinment being taken at 4 p.m.  Please call us today at 413.559.5610 or email us at to book your visit!
