If you’re looking for a unique venue in Toronto, the Artscape Wychwood Barns is just that. Transformed from a former streetcar repair facility with soaring ceilings, exposed brick walls, abundant natural light and industrial chic architectural detailing. This dramatic building transforms your special day into something truly unique. The venue hosts around 10 to 15 weddings a year but is quite busy with Farmer’s Markets so it is best to book your special day at minimum a year in advance.
The venue can accommodate a number event configurations ranging from 200 guests for both ceremony and reception onsite with a capacity of 200, ceremony only for 400 or reception only for 350 guests. Should you only wish to have a cocktail party, or standing reception, the venue capacity increases to 600 people.
There are a number of options for added decoration to the venue allowing decoration to be hung from exposed beams, table and chairs are availiable in-house for use, and in-house sheer curtains can be used to separate the space or as a décor element.
The event rental business operates as a social enterprise giving back all of the revenues from venue rentals support the building’s cultural programming and services.
