Last update: April 2024

The Big Red Barn is a beautiful historic wedding venue in Lacombe, Alberta. Initially built in 1903 by the Federal Government at the Lacombe Research Station, the barn was used to house horses before it was scheduled to be destroyed in 1995. However, it was purchased by the current owners and moved onto their personal property before being renamed The Big Red Barn. By 1997, owner Lucas had wholly restored the building in time to host his son's wedding celebration. The Big Red Barn has been hosting weddings ever since.

Wonderful experience!

Lucas and Josh were very generous, flexible, and made planning my wedding a little easier. Definitely would recommend if you’re looking for a rustic/country wedding.
