About Zenbarn

Zenbarn is a remodeled 1920s dairy barn-turned-wedding venue, located in Waterbury Center, Vermont. This full-service venue offers couples amenities such as a kitchen with on-site catering, a stage, a full bar, accommodations, and professional staff to take care of their every need.

Outdoor ceremony sites can also be arranged, with stunning scenic views and the ability to decorate to a couple’s specifications. Parking, shuttle, and wheelchair access are also available.
