The Barn at Meri­am Park is where the old meets the new. This 115-year-old his­toric build­ing was moved and rebuilt to cre­ate a com­mu­ni­ty hub in Chico. The rus­tic exte­ri­or cre­ates an indoor-out­door expe­ri­ence like none oth­er, pro­vid­ing a unique and mem­o­rable ambiance per­fect for any wed­ding, anniver­sary par­ty, fundrais­er, gala, con­cert, and more.

The Barn is very diverse and ful­fill mul­ti­ple pur­pos­es and events, with staff ready to help accom­mo­date any needs to help you make the best event as pos­si­ble. It is also locat­ed with­in walk­ing-dis­tance of the rest of Meri­am Park ser­vices and shops, includ­ing the bou­tique hotel Odelia Suites
