Most commonly referred to as “The Barn”, this venue is owned and operated by the Town of Ridgefield, the Barn serves as a local teen center that engages kids from ages 13-17 in a variety of after school activities. The Barn is located at 10 Governor Street (in the Veterans Park Elementary School parking lot).
The Barn Teen Center has been available to all Ridgefield teens free of charge for 18 years. It serves as a second home for many, where high schoolers gather with friends and engage in unstructured activities, such as pool, arcade or video games, cooking, drawing, participating in Magic Card and Yu Gi OH tournaments, Friday night Rock Houses, Open Mic nights, and Lock-ins. Director Linda Caponetti describes the teen center as a “safe, fun, and comfortable haven for our teens.”
