Helping those in need in Avery County, N.C.

The Party Barn

The Party Barn

The Party Barn is a unique venue in the High Country for upscale dining, entertaining and fundraising. Jim Ward, founder and chairman of the High Country Charitable Foundation, envisioned the Party Barn as a way to spend time with friends and family while also enhancing donations to HCCF. Jim’s vision became a reality in May of 2022. Through Engel & Volkers Banner Elk shop’s generosity, the luxurious Party Barn, coupled with the services of Executive Chef Will Hughes, is available for relaxed upscale private events and functions for groups seeking a unique entertaining experience as well as dinner four nights a week.

The Party Barn’s mission is to provide an outstanding culinary and service experience in upscale mountain surroundings while benefiting the High Country Charitable Foundation through patron donations.

Access to The Party Barn is limited to those who have made an annual gift of $1,000 or more to the HCCF, or is a client of Engel & Volkers.

Visit The Party Barn or call (828) 737-2700 for more information.
