Tucson's Newest and Most Stunning Venue, The Barn at Tanque Verde Ranch

At the base of the Rincon Mountains and its escalating foothills will sit Tanque Verde Ranch’s newest and largest structure, The Barn. Located a quarter of a mile south of check-in at Tanque Verde Ranch and atop of the Saguaro National State Park, The Barn will be a pristine new venue for Tucson’s most luxurious weddings and events.

Opening November, 2019 the strategically placed venue provides the ultimate viewing experience of the infinite desert mountains and millions of cacti with ultra-wide panoramic, windowed doors that allow for the open space to expand into The Barn’s outdoor terrace. By day the natural light will provide a comfortable ambience of being in an oasis in the middle of the desert, and by night will be illuminated by dozens of elegant lights and chandeliers. The placement of The Barn will be secluded from the Ranch itself, creating a separate entity. However, the Ranch will be just down the road for convenient transportation between the two locations. Whether you are both a Ranch and Barn guest or one or the other, you’ll feel right where you need to be.

The massive new venue will feature a spacious dining room (7,886 sq.ft.), an indoor/outdoor rustic bar (1,285 sq.ft.), a fully-functional kitchen (1,500 sq.ft.), along with men and women’s bathrooms, storage spaces, and an expansive entertaining lawn bringing the total of The Barn to 13,400 sq.ft. The Barn will comfortably entertain up 350 guests at a time. With the all-encompassing views, spacious entertaining areas and warmth of Tanque Verde hospitality The Barn is sure to be the opportune venue for any number of events you are seeking to host.

The Barn at Tanque Verde Ranch caters to the fashionable trend of rustic and modern wedding venues that are in high demand across the United States. With tall vaulted ceilings, industrial Edison light bulbs dangling inside and out, and open square footage —this venue exclaims charm, with a southwest equestrian touch.

Make your grand entrance through the central 2-story-modern barn door or from the east side wall, which has panoramic, sliding windowed doors that glide open to an additional 40 feet. Open the doors to allow for fresh air and more open space. An 18 feet wide gas, stone-built fireplace crawls up the south end for the main focal point. Several wooden columns complete the structure and pillars add a modern yet, old character depending on what drapery and decor the clients decide to use. Undressed, the rafters and posts solely are alluring.

The generous Dining Room allows for a wide variety of arrangements for both ceremonies and receptions. Ideally, thirty-five tables seating 10 guests each can be placed throughout including additional space for several high-top cocktail tables. The exterior lawn terrace provides the same substantial area for seating. The 2,700 sq.ft. polished bar space stretches from the inside and around the corner to the outside lawn.

The event lawn faces east towards the mountainous landscape and will welcome plenty of opportunities for the event to carry on with a permanent stage, dance space and delicate dangling lights crisscrossing throughout the terrace.

Wow your guests at the most sought after venue in Arizona ‘The Barn’ at Tanque Verde Ranch. Where Rustic meets Elegance,” said Mary Ellen, Director of Sales at Tanque Verde Ranch.

A bride and groom can choose through an array of ceremony spaces, cocktail hours, reception plans, and ‘back up plans’ for that unexpected rain or cold weather, all of which will be a place of sanctuary for their guests.
