Bash at the Barn

Due to the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, and out of concern for the safety of our event guests, event partners, and the Conservatory staff, we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Bash at the Barn fundraising event. 

Please mark your calendar to join us next year in support of the Conservatory on Thursday, June 3, 2021!

In lieu of attending this year’s Bash fundraiser, please consider making a donation to support the Conservatory’s mission. We need your support now more than ever!

Thank you to our 2020 Bash at the Barn sponsors! We’re grateful to these partners who’ve agreed to convert their sponsorships into donations to support the Conservatory.


Bash at the Barn is the Conservatory’s annual tasting event. Held at the beautiful Wells Barn and surrounding grounds, the event brings together 500+ corporate and community leaders with emerging professionals for a rustic-meets-refined evening in support of the Conservatory. Bash at the Barn features bites from top Columbus restaurants, signature cocktails, fine wines and local craft beers, along with live music and a fantastic silent auction.

Funds raised through Bash at the Barn benefit the Conservatory’s horticulture programs and community outreach initiatives, cultivating a closer connection between people and the natural world. From nature-based early childhood programs and extensive plant collections in our gardens and biomes, to the sprawling Children’s Garden and immersive horticulture displays, the Conservatory creates opportunities to explore, connect and marvel at the natural world.
