From Butterfield Rd. (Illinois Route 56) go south on Batavia Rd. Take the first right. Go 1 block and turn left on Warren Ave. The Community Building is across the street from the Police Station.

The Barn Dances are co-sponsored by the Fox Valley Folklore Society, the Chicago Barn Dance Company, and the Warrenville Park District.
