In Pinehurst, North Carolina, The Fair Barn is an idyllic destination for celebratory wedding ceremonies and receptions. Constructed for the Sandhills Fair in 1917, this unique building is one of the state's oldest surviving twentieth-century structures. Lovingly restored after the turn of the century, the facilities here now boast many trendy amenities necessary for the modern couple. The attentive staff here has over 15-years of experience in hosting weddings and will do whatever it takes to deliver above and beyond what is expected.

Facilities and Capacity

Upon arrival, you and your party will have exclusive access to the venue’s private dressing rooms fitted with full-length mirrors and lighted vanities. You can rest assured knowing that these areas have everything you need to make yourself feel completely comfortable and prepared for the big day ahead. At The Fair Barn, you can welcome as many as 500 to 800 guests, depending on the layout you choose for your wedding. There are multiple outdoor locations with spectacular views; these options are ideal on warm and sunny days.

Inside, the barn feels purposefully designed for celebratory occasions. This exhibition hall-style space features a rustic atmosphere highlighted by elements such as wooden-scissor truss ceilings, skylights, and functional concrete flooring. Much to the delight of your caterer, the building has a fully-equipped commercial kitchen. Guests will also find ample parking space on-site for easy access and peace of mind for their vehicle safety.

The Fair Barn is an amazing reception venue located right on The Pinehurst Harness Track. We shot a wedding reception there in the past and were amazed by the wooden structure of the building and by the friendly helpful staff . I would highly recommend the venue for couples who have a larger wedding party , it can fit up to 500 people!!!
