Venue Spotlight: Pedretti’s Party Barn

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing John Pedretti of Pedretti’s Party Barn. It’s one of the fabulous rural barn venues we have available for events in south-central Wisconsin.  I love barn weddings!  Pedretti’s Party Barn is located in a working farm!
The Pedrettis, originally from the area, converted the original barn to a lovely event venue.  The barn was built in the 1920’s on a ridge overlooking beautiful rural valleys.  They also maintain a picturesque vineyard that’s available for walking and is a gorgeous setting for photographs.  Their six mules are a fun diversion for guests-especially the kiddos!

They mostly host weddings, but they have experience with a myriad of celebrations including birthday parties, prom and a Farm Breeding Association luncheon with representatives from 27 nations!

The barn itself has laminated floors (better for dancing than a rustic barn floor!), original wagon wheel chandeliers and a 30’ by 60’ outdoor deck with a fabulous view!  Inside the barn, they’ve included a DJ balcony overlooking the dance floor.
They keep a clearing mowed for outdoor weddings with a 6 ft path.
Because they only host one function per weekend, they’re very generous with the set-up and take-down time.  They allow guests to start decorating Wednesday and they have through Monday to complete clean-up!
I can’t wait to work at this gorgeous unique venue
So, here are some specs!
Location E5594 County Rd., Viroqua WI  54665 Between Westby and Viroqua.  (About 2.5 hours west of Madison)
E-mail: juniebelle at
Capacity: 200 in the barn is lovely, but it can hold a maximum of 350.  There’s also plenty of space available for setting up event tents outside.
Parking: Large gravel parking lot
Seating: 1200 white chairs available on site
Price: Barn rental is $600,  Outside $100 (Includes chairs for outside)

Many thanks to Rebecca Eby of Studio Noveau for providing these photographs!

    I have booked them for my september 2013 wedding! The Pedrettis are so wonderful to work worth, when my fiance and I went to look at the venue we fell inlove immediatly and booked right there on the spot! They welcomed us into their home and we chatted about hunting, they took my fiance to the basement and showed him a massive trophy buck they had got the previous year! They are such awsome people! Also just a little update, the pricing that is shown on this site is not accurate, it is a little higher, but well worth it! Where else can you find a place that lets you have almost a week so set up and take down?! so just call them with questions!

    Don’t have quite enough room for a family reunion at home in Chaseburg so I think the Pedretti Barn would be perfect. Now the problem will be the best time of year. Any suggestions? Would like to avoid bug time/ being too hot. What 2016 Sundays might you have open after May for a midday picnic/bar – b-que?
