CONNELLY SPRINGS – Those looking for a way to shimmy in the New Year can find it at The Barn in Wildwood Acres later this week.
The venue will host a sweatshop-themed New Years party from around 8 p.m. Friday to 1:30 a.m.-2 a.m. Saturday, venue owner Kelsey Teague said.
Tickets to the event, priced at $ 60, will give revelers access to performances by Chris Day and the Logic, as well as heavy hor dourves, appetizers and sweets, a midnight champagne toast and New Year’s gifts, Teague said. Discounted drinks will be available at a cash / card bar.
A special password will be required to access the venue, and those who have already ordered their tickets have received the password to enter the venue by mail. Teague said those who order tickets from now on will likely receive the password at will.
This is the first New Years Eve party the place, which has been open for just over a year, will host, but Teague said she hopes it becomes a regular addition to the list.
The barn opened around July 2020, shortly after the start of the pandemic, and although many businesses felt pressure from staff and product shortages, Teague said she believed the venue owned and operated by family helped offset many of these pressures in the first year of operation.
