Barrington’s White House provides a place for the community to gather. We offer:

  • Intimate spaces for hosting world-class concerts, performances, lectures, theater and dance performances, as well as humanities presentations and art exhibits.
  • The perfect location for community and non-profit organizations to hold fundraisers, annual meetings, strategic planning sessions, educational training and recognition events.
  • A first-class private event venue for weddings, rehearsal dinners and welcome parties, as well as showers, birthday and anniversary parties, and bereavement gatherings. Companies and corporations use it for holiday parties, meetings and client presentations.

Barrington’s White House is supported by donations from individuals, foundations and companies, as well as revenue from private event rentals, cultural and community events, individual and corporate sponsorships. Please explore the various ways that you can help support our cultural and community center below.

If we keep our collective eyes on the horizon and seriously start building the Capital and Operating Reserve Funds for our brand new White House, we can ensure a rock-solid future for this treasured place.
