I held my wedding reception at the Farmstead Expo Barn, and it was a dream come true! My wedding was in January, so the nice parking lot and the heated "barn" were great. The Expo Barn actually used to be an Antique Mall, which made set up a little challenging, but they allowed us to decorate and set up any way we wanted and we were able to easily fit our 250 guests in one half of the first floor - that's including a live band and HUGE dance floor. The staff was helpful, and my guests commented on how lovely everything was. The main reason why I chose the Farmstead Expo Barn was because it was the most affordable option compared to everything else I researched in Northern Indiana / Southern Michigan! If I were to get married in the summer, I would have booked the entire wedding at the Farmstead Event Pavilion - which also has an outdoor gazebo where you can have the ceremony!Sent on 01/02/2019

Would highly recommend the event pavilion for any special occasion.
We held my daughters wedding and reception both in the event pavilion and it was an amazing day. Everyone was extremely helpful in the planning of the wedding and any items we needed. We live in Tipton In. and was able to use all of the local resources recommended-including florists, catering, equipment rental and hotel accommodations. The pictures say it all. Love, Love, Love Shipshewana and all it has to offer.Sent on 03/12/2019
