What to Expect:

A real barn! One of the many things that sets The Brauer Barn apart from other venues is that it is a true barn. It has a very rustic feel and has had very little changes done to it while converting it into a venue. The barn has original hard wood floors and wood siding that allows for the cool summer breeze to come through. The barn has been updated to include indoor plumbing, a dry bar, a deck around the outside for viewing and pictures, a handicap ramp and handicap parking making the barn wheelchair accessible.


The barn can be utilized for wedding ceremonies, wedding receptions, reunions, parties, baby showers, bridal showers, photography events or any other need you may have.



Jason and Molly Brauer are the owners are The Brauer Barn and renovated it for their own wedding in 2016. When they decided to renovate it they had no intention to rent it out until they saw the excitement from the community about it. Once they knew they had the support of the community behind them they decided to turn it in to a venue that allowed others to plan their dream weddings and events in.

Both Jason and Molly were both raised in Winnebago, graduated from Winnebago High School, and still have family ties in the area. They love the idea of having an event center in their home town to support local businesses and families.

When Jason and Molly are not working at their full time jobs or doing events in the barn they enjoy spending time with their children: Parker, Landon and Everly.
