The perfect setting

Planning your event

It's all here

In 1972, 70 year old Ben Vanderhook tore down old barns in Mahaska County and surrounding counties to create our beautiful barn, located a stones throw south of Oskaloosa, Iowa. The 3 1/2 acre property includes a 147x46x60 quonset hut barn, open fields as well as mature shade trees.


The Celebration Barn is one of the most extraordinary and romantic settings for a Midwest wedding or special event.
