Your Wedding, Your Week.

Sugar Island Barn is a private wedding and reception venue located in Watertown, Wisconsin. With six acres of lush grass and trees, it offers the perfect rustic, country setting for your wedding. If you’re looking for a barn setting with indoor and outdoor spaces for your bridal shower, wedding ceremony, elopement, engagement party, rehearsal dinner, or reception, Sugar Island Barn offers a flexible venue and a staff eager to make your wedding week special and memorable.

Facilities and Capacity

Sugar Island Barn features one main event space: the on-site barn. At 4,000 square feet, it offers room for up to 300 guests. Hold your ceremony outdoors while enjoying the scenic views, and then move into the barn for a fun, high-energy reception. The bridal suite makes it convenient for your wedding party to get ready right at the venue, too. Sugar Island Barn is wheelchair accessible, and parking is available on site.

Even though Sugar Island Barn is a barn, you can definitely expect to not be herded in and out like cattle! This venue prides itself on flexibility.

They’ll take care of all the little things so you can spend your time enjoying your day and making memories with friends and family. The fully-licensed and operational bar can provide everything you need for your reception bar, including bartenders, cash bar, champagne toast, house beer, house liquor, house wine, limited bar, open bar, premium liquor, specialty beer, specialty wine, and signature drinks. Sugar Island Barn also offers on-site event rentals, including chairs, tables, and dance floors. The venue carries liability insurance, and outside vendors are welcome.

Best Venue Ever!

We got married here 8.6.22 and seriously could not have asked for a better venue. They thoroughly answered all of our questions, made sure everything ran smoothly, continually checked in on us, and were overall a joy to work with. They were unbelievably helpful the entire weekend as we used the venue everyday Thursday-Sunday! They helped us set up and take down as well! They even specifically made sure they provided pineapple wine for our wedding as I mentioned once it was my favorite! We got so many compliments on how gorgeous everything was and people loved everything about the barn. We even got to have our dog with us the entire time! I truly would recommend Sugar Island Barn to anyone looking to have a barn wedding!

Great Venue & Fabulous People

The amenities at Sugar Island Barn are Fantastic!! We appreciated all the venue had to offer for wedding party space! Having the barn for the whole week was absolutely wonderful and allowed us to decorate and add our touch to our wedding day without being rushed!! The family was very helpful in answering questions and helping in planning the day! The staff and wedding day help was a life saver for us as they fulfilled every request and were happy to help with anything we needed! Highly, highly recommend!!

Our daughter's wedding

Our daughter got married here in 2018 and it was great. Owners are very friendly and very gracious with their availability before and after the wedding day. Our son is getting married this year, 2023, and we looked at some other venues but nothing compared. Another venue didn't allow us to do any decorations and required that everything be cleaned up and out by the end of the night. Who wants to do that?! At Sugar Island, you can enjoy your day!
