Special Event Venues
St. Barnabas hosts numerous special and regularly scheduled events at two inviting venues. With options including dinners, music, theatre, and community connections, there are plenty of ways to have fun. Event venues include:
The Kean Theatre is an elegant venue located on our beautiful Gibsonia campus. Its many amenities make it ideal for hosting business seminars and conferences, as well as any kind of musical or theatrical event. The theatre is also conveniently close to several major highways, making access easy.
Also found in Gibsonia, the Crystal Conservatories is a luxurious indoor oasis with the classic design of European conservatories. It highlights the beauty of its natural surroundings, making it perfect for bridal showers, weddings, and celebratory dinners. It also contains a large, heated indoor pool where we host aquatic exercise and recreational swimming.
Our event venues are available for area businesses and individuals as well, ensuring our campuses are an integral part of the local community. Additionally, both venues offer local organizations and residents a way to give back, as all proceeds support the St. Barnabas Free Care Fund for residents who need assistance most.
