The Barns at Wind’s Edge, located just east of Saskatoon, offers a picturesque setting on a natural plateau overlooking native prairies and wetlands. This event centre is designed to harmonize with its surroundings, capture scenic views, and maximize natural light. Whether it is weddings, special occasions, meetings, or community events, the Barn at Wind’s Edge serves as a unique and stunning venue.

Architecturally, the Barn at Wind’s Edge blends the character of prairie buildings with modern event space. The main building features vertical cedar cladding that undergoes a natural aging process, providing a neutral backdrop to the surrounding natural landscapes. In contrast, the attached ceremonial and meeting space uses white board and batten siding, reminiscent of prairie churches. Large windows flood the interior with natural daylight, connecting guests to the expansive prairies.

Inside, the venue offers a warm and airy atmosphere with wood flooring, exposed beams, ample windows, and understated white walls. The main floor includes a modern event area accommodating up to 225 people for seated dinners, with a stunning bar and luxurious touches like crystal chandeliers. The space seamlessly combines rustic charm with contemporary elegance. Additionally, the facility houses a commercial kitchen, washrooms, and meeting spaces, including a multipurpose chapel. The upper floor features meeting rooms, a lounge, offices, and storage areas, ensuring the venue meets all program space requirements.
