Folklore Village sits on 94 acres of lovely rolling hills surrounded by beautiful prairieland. Our main hall, Farwell Hall, is designed with the exterior characteristics of a country barn. The hall has a beautiful 1,500 square-foot maple dance floor with an inlaid walnut Moravian star in the center of the room; vaulted ceiling with hand-forged wrought-iron chandeliers; a unique oak stairway leading to the balcony; a restaurant quality kitchen; two dressing rooms; an outdoor porch overlooking an ample backyard; attractive, expansive grounds for setting up a tent or other outdoor recreational activities; visible playground for children plus many other striking features. The hall which is air conditioned and has a capacity of 120 people. Should you choose to rent a tent for your special occasion, there is no maximum capacity; we simply ask that you also rent porta-potties to accommodate the larger crowd. Also, the historic Plum Grove Chapel sits just across the road from the hall and is a beautiful option for a ceremony of about 110 people.

We were thrilled to have our wedding so close to my hometown and in a unique location that was simple, rustic and comfortable. Our photos are simply stunning and you'd think we had traveled to 3 or 4 locations based on the variety of background we have- prairie/farmland, wild flowers, a path filled with pine trees and indoor.Sent on 12/07/2015
We decide to do an indoor ceremony, but with over 100 attending we used the Red "Farwell Hall" location and chose not to rent the chapel space. The folding chairs on site were perfect and a great money saver for the ceremony. The AC held up well in the August heat (but the ceremony was short!)
We had cocktails in the front garden and were able to have an outdoor rock band thanks to the access to electrical hook ups. We made use of the on site picnic tables for this space and rented a small tent for the bar/food.
We had our reception outside under a big tent in the flat space behind Farwell Hall- it was grand in the space and made a lovely statement but didn't overwhelm the yard- leaving room for the playground, porta potties and room to mingle outside.
Parking was no problem, we had signs directing cars to the overflow lot and the path was clear and easy to walk- our school bus shuttle had no problem with pick ups either.
The team at FLV was easy to work with and prompt with their replies. We were able to book additional time for our rehearsal and set up. I'd recommend this location to anyone looking for a rustic setting that can take on any theme and be comfortable for guests to 'escape' to.
Folklore Village is a fantastic venue, and one of my all-time favorites. After all, I got married there! If you’re look for a unique place in Wisconsin’s beautiful countryside that you can make your own, this is it!
