Barn venues in Door and Kewaunee Counties will not have to worry about applying for a liquor license before hosting weddings and other events. Governor Tony Evers announced last week that owners of wedding barn venues will not have to worry about getting liquor licenses before hosting events despite pressure from the Tavern League of Wisconsin. Stacey Vecellio and her husband David have a liquor license for their soon-to-be-opened The Grain Loft event space in Algoma, but own a wedding barn venue in Oconomowoc. She believes the decision to not force wedding barn venues to get liquor licenses is a good one.
Vecellio says the difference between her wedding barn and The Grain Loft, located at the former site of The Flying Pig, is she sees the Algoma landmark hosting more public events down the line.
