Looking for a rustic barn as the venue for your next event, but missing only one thing: the actual barn? Well, Seattle-based startup Tentwood Events has a solution: a 1,000-square-foot popup barn. 

Tentwood is the brainchild of Kelsey Von Stubbe, who was inspired to introduce the venue option when she was planning her own wedding and wanted something other than the traditional white tent. She parlayed her experience at Seattle’s Teatro ZinZanni—which performs in an antique Spiegeltent, a large traveling tent—to design the portable pastoral space. 

Tentwood’s pop-up barn was engineered in the Pacific Northwest and manufactured with an aluminum frame, wooden wall panels and aged steel roofing to create a realisticlooking country barn. The traveling venue features 1,000 square feet of space and a 14-foot-tall ceiling and can accommodate as many as 100 people seated or 120 people standing. Although it does not offer traditional flooring, planners can rent add-ons, such as a dance floor, a bar, and tables and chairs. The barn can be set up and taken down in one day by Tentwood’s production crew.

Tentwood Events is now available to book for events taking place as soon as spring 2018.  

When you're in the mountains, it’s truly difficult to be bored. From skiing and snowboarding to hiking and climbing, the U.S. Mountain West and western Canada know how to keep things interesting when it comes to outdoor activities. But sometimes, the best way to enjoy the mountains is to sit back and take in the expansive views. Take your meetings to the mountains without the heavy snow gear and winter boots by hosting your next event on a rooftop venue surrounded by breathtaking mountains.

 

One of the best things about the chill of winter is the warmth of a roaring fire. Northwest venues are particularly adept at creating spaces where guests can gather and collaborate around a stunning fireplace that is as much a work of art as it is a necessity. Here are some of our favorites.

 

The wildly popular Magnolia Brewery in San Francisco’s Dogpatch neighborhood has a new addition: Magnolia Hall, a 6,500-square-foot private event space
connected to the always-bustling brewery and taproom. Just a 10-minute walk from Oracle Stadium, where the Giants play, it’s perfect for a pre- or post-game function and for more formal events, too.
