Over 20 years ago she and her husband Brian founded the Barn Festival, a unique shopping experience on their property out in the country. The Barn Festival has grown into an event they host twice a year in May and September. The event attracts tens of thousands of customers out on a dirt road in Hastings, Nebraska to shop over 150 vendors’ unique wares. The Barn Festival has grown to include food trucks and their newest hit, The Watering Hole, which supplies visitors with everything from water, soft drinks and tea to mimosas, wine and beer.
The amount of time and effort put into the festival is truly remarkable. A multitude of people put in an immeasurable amount of work to make the festival what it is. Each year Marla and Brian work hard to upgrade the visitor’s experience through improvements and new ideas. This year, along with the Watering Hole, they built a boardwalk so their guests could be safer by not walking on the driveway. These upgrades make the Barn Festival an ever evolving experience for all who attend.
Good Vibes at the Barn. We love our customers! Tell us what you purchased last weekend, and what you are coming back for this weekend. We look forward to seeing you Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 10-6...located at 3045 & 3030 S Marian Rd in Hastings, NE 🤗 #barnfestival #nebraska #hastingsnebraska #supportsmallbusiness
