The Gentle Barn :: The Haunted Barnyard

October 22nd, 23rd, 27th - 31st, November 5th & 6th 2020


We have some very unfortunate news. As you all know, we put together an amazing community drive-through that we've been eager for all of you to experience -- The Haunted Barnyard: Land of Nightmares. But due to a series of unforeseen circumstances that culminated in powerful Santa Ana winds destroying many of the drive-through's structures and features, we need to cancel The Haunted Barnyard entirely. A large team of people worked tirelessly for weeks to bring this experience to life. So, as you might imagine, we're devastated by this news.

We're all living through unprecedented times, and this has been a particularly challenging year for The Gentle Barn. COVID forced us to pivot away from many of our previous fundraising activities, and this Halloween experience was our creative way to generate much-need donations while simultaneously bringing something positive and fun to our community during a time when all of us are missing the way life used to be. We're doing everything we can to keep our doors open during this pandemic and to properly care for the nearly 200 rescued animals that have become part of our family. So, again, we're heartbroken by what's happened.

We truly apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation may cause you and your guests, and are planning to issue refunds for your donations. That said, if you're willing to allow The Gentle Barn to keep your donation, we would be incredibly grateful. Every dollar we raise is significant for us, particularly now. You will receive an email within the next couple of days asking what you would like to do with your donation. If you have any questions about this, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Thank you to everyone who supported us in this endeavor; it means more to us than words can express. We couldn't do it without you!
