Out in Bloomington, Indiana, Whippoorwill Hill is an event venue that’s set on a 130-acre secluded farm that boasts historic architecture. This rustic, vintage venue is busiest from April through November, and plays host to receptions, ceremonies, bridal showers, and engagement parties. On the day of your event, Whippoorwill Hill will have a rep on-site should you need anything.
Facilities and Capacity
The two-story wedding barn (also known as Russell Barn) was originally built in 1892. More recently it was renovated and may accommodate up to 300 people. Overall, your setting options at the working farm are indoor, uncovered outdoor, and covered outdoor spots; the wedding and reception sites are completely secluded. Whippoorwill Hill is not a facility with climate-control options; it’s recommended that couples rent portable temporary heaters in cooler months and opening the larger sliding doors during warmer times.
Among the offerings covered in your wedding package are the solid wood Chiavari chairs that complement the barn’s interior; you’ll get 220 standard American-made chairs come with ivory cushions and then 20 that are bar height for the pub tables. Tables and luxury restrooms are included in the price; these are just two items offered to couples, to hopefully make the event elegant and comfortable while also budget-friendly. Event rentals, liability insurance, lighting, sound and setup are among the event services. Other services include:
With Whippoorwill Hill, you’ll have the best of both worlds: You’ll be on a secluded plot of land that’s also just six miles from the heart of downtown Bloomington, Indiana. You and your loved ones may also appreciate the close proximity to Fourwinds Lakeside Inn and Marina at Lake Monroe. On-site, there’s parking, including ADA-compliant parking spots; it’s also a wheelchair-accessible location. The location, set away from the hubbub of city center, makes for a great backdrop for your photos; imagine standing with your sweetie and stealing a kiss just before sunset as your photographer snaps away.

We could not have been happier with our experience at Whippoorwill Hill! The venue was gorgeous, and everyone was professional and friendly throughout the planning stages and the day-of. The weather on our wedding day was perfect with not a cloud in the sky, but we would have been equally pleased with the ceremony indoors or outdoors with how beautiful everything is. Thank you so much for having us and making our wedding a day to cherish and remember!Sent on 06/18/2021

Your wedding was stunning and we LOVED the paper airplane send off - how original and how sweet that you folded those. Truly a beautiful act of love! Hope you guys make it back to the farm one day!
