Begin Your Forever

In The BlueGrass

Our beautiful renovated tobacco barn is the perfect backdrop for your wedding.  With your personal touches, each wedding is totally different.  The Event Barn has a private parking area, dedicated restrooms, a newly revised catering kitchen, and a spacious loft for getting ready.  There is even a spacious covered patio so that the party can be inside as well as out.

With 38 acres, several indoor and outdoor settings, surrounded by rolling horse farms and the South Elkhorn Creek, you’ll find the perfect spot for any event. The variety of indoor and outdoor venues easily accommodate intimate groups as small as 20 up to large gatherings of 1200 people.

Plan your unique event in the heart of the Kentucky’s Bluegrass Region. Southern hospitality, beautiful scenery, and award-winning wines are the winning trifecta for your event! We look forward to serving you and working with you or your coordinators to tailor a successful event.

The Event Barn

Our renovated tobacco barn is climate controlled and has a catering prep kitchen along with men’s and women’s restrooms.  A spacious carpeted loft provides additional seating or can be used as a private area for the bride and bridesmaids.  There is a full covered patio with heating and also drop down side panels in case of inclement weather.  A small corner stage on the patio provides focused attention for a DJ, podium or the bride and groom’s table.

Equus Run Vineyards has one of the few climate-controlled Event Barns in Kentucky. This facility maintains the old barn interior with renovations that allow for weddings, receptions, bridal showers, and rehearsal dinners any time of year.

The Equus Run Amphitheater

Overlooking the scenic South Elkhorn Creek, the amphitheater offers a beautiful natural backdrop of bluegrass horse country. The covered redwood arbor stage, approximately 20’x40′, can accommodate musical groups, wedding parties, ceremonies or other events needing an elevated stage. The three stone terraced lawn tiers accommodate up to 1400 seated guests who will enjoy an unobstructed view of the stage and the lovely horse farm panorama behind it. A restroom/concession facility is adjacent to the terrace and a nearby permanent 40′ x 60′ picnic shelter also is available.

Stand together on the Amphitheatre stage as you exchange your vows. The beauty of this space requires little decorating as nature surrounds you and your guests. This provides space for large
guest lists.

The Patio Gardens, Deck & Waterfall Stream

A beautifully landscaped and intimate area, with a winding pathway through flower gardens and a bridge over a terraced waterfall area, this is a niche spot for any special small event. The deck off the tasting room meanders under the trees. A round gazebo in the midst of the gardens has six benches, electric and lighting. Off to the side is a stonewalled golf putting green. The gardens also are home to ‘Vegetariat’, a life-size artistic horse statue from Lexington’s “Horse Mania” art tour. The gardens and deck easily accommodate up to 125 guests.
