Celebrations at the Fiddle Shed

Whether it is a wedding, birthday party, private gathering or ceilidh we can offer you our barn for the day, evening or afternoon.  The barn, located in the heart of Cape Breton, dates back over 140 years and has been restored, so as to offer over 1700 sq ft of level wooden floors along with character wooden beams.  Whilst we have renovated and updated the barn to comply with current building codes, we do not have heat or air-conditioning and therefore are happy to offer dates between mid June and mid September for your special event.  Up to 100 family, friends and guests can gather in elegance for a celebration.  The whole building is non smoking, however smoking is permitted in designated areas.  Alcohol is permitted, however it is the responsibility of the renter to obtain the necessary alcohol licenses.


Our beautiful barn is just the place for you to realise your dream of a ‘rustic charm’ wedding.  We can offer a number of different packages to suit your needs from an intimate, relaxed private ceremony to a larger, laid-back, trendy celebration.  The choice is yours,you can decorate the barn yourself, hire a decorator, hire a wedding planner or other specialist to make your day extra special. Outside caterers can be booked, which will allow you a choice of casual buffet, pig roast, or a full sit-down meal in a beautifully decorated period building.  

Birthday parties / private gatherings

With over 1700 sq ft of space, your event dreams can become reality. We have plenty of room for private functions, such as a baby shower, family gathering or birthday event.  Sit back and enjoy the charm and atmosphere of the barn.
