  • The Carriage Barn Arts 🎭 Center is a New Canaan landmark located inside Waveny Park. It’s a remodeled stone building housing New Canaan’s nonprofit performing art group and an art gallery featuring some of the finest works of art and photography in the area. Of special note it’s open to the public with free admission and free parking at The Carriage Barn or in one of the Waveny parking lots. Open Wednesday through Sunday with special weekend hours, it’s a wonderful place to take the family enjoying 😉 art shows with family and friends. The Carriage Barn is a special place with exciting cultural events for everyone.
