Stay up-to-date on what's going on at Lakemary Center


In 2016, Lakemary held the first ever Barnapalooza event in an effort to start raising funds to build a big,red barn at our animal and garden therapy center that we lovingly call “The Ranch”. More than 500 people came out on a beautiful summer evening to have a good time and, most importantly, support the work of our organization. Because of the outpouring of generosity that night, and from our entire community of supporters, the André Dight Memorial Barn was built in just a fewmonths!

However, the work at Lakemary Ranch is far from done, and the first Barnapalooza showed us the powerful things that can happen when people come together for an important cause. That is why this event has become an annual tradition. Your support provides opportunities for educational and therapeutic programs, environmental sustainability options, and training so that animal therapy can be offered to all the children and adults at Lakemary.

The Ranch is a year-round operation that continues to expand and requires constant support through staffing and gifts from our wonderful donors.
Barnapalooza continues to grow as well. There may be a few changes this year, but the heart of the event remains the same. Bring the whole family and join us September 8th at Isinglass Estate to enjoy live music, spend time with fellow Lakemary supporters, and contribute to the important work of The Ranch.


Ticket includes all food & drink, entertainment, and entry to "The Fun Zone" for children.
