The Chandelier Barn
The most unique space at the Lionsgate Event Center is the Chandelier Barn. The Chandelier Barn started off as a carriage barn on the dairy farm in 1910. Now, having been refurbished and custom designed, the Chandelier Barn has a new life as one of the most romantic wedding venues we’ve ever seen.
The Chandelier Barn gets its name from the 37 hand-made crystal chandeliers adorning the arched barn ceiling. With a grand, dark wood staircase leading off of an ornate mezzanine, the smaller space of the Chandelier Barn radiates luxury. The Chandelier Barn is one of the most unforgettable wedding venues in Colorado.
