Event Venue in Great Barrington, MA
Although Berkshire Equestrian Center’s primary focus is to ensure the facilities and horse care are paramount and commensurate with the needs of its clients — providing excellent boarding, lessons and trails for its riders — it is an event venue as well. To augment the capabilities of the facility, BEC houses a number of multiple use spaces available to rent for product photo shoots, private parties, weddings, presentations, film staging, meetings, strategic planning, and board retreats. With multiple breakout rooms, work spaces and outdoor areas throughout the property, BEC is equipped to handle any event.
The Flag Barn
Perfect for intimate dinner parties, fundraisers, rehearsal dinners, festive occasions, writing workshops or watching sporting events, the barn has two levels. Upstairs is a beautiful raw space with fantastic light available for photo shoots and art classes. Downstairs is a lounge area and pool table as well as a raw space which can accommodate up to 100 people. The rental space is a blank slate and can be decorated to reflect the unique personality of any event.
Attached to the Scott Indoor Arena, the Annex has both a lower and an upper level. Downstairs has an open floor plan, with arena viewing, and an office with pass thru window if refreshments are served. This space is perfect for birthday parties and children’s events.
The second floor of the Annex houses our wellness areas (yoga, massage, wet treatments) and provides an ideal location for meetings, strategic planning sessions and retreats for groups up to 25. There are also two break out spaces.
The Shaker Barn Hayloft
A fabulous location for photo shoots and fashion layouts, this hayloft sits right above the Main Shaker boarding Barn. It has a view of the outdoor arena as well as the distant woods. Creative minds can envision dances and romantic engagements.
