In an effort to limit community transmission of the Coronavirus and in accordance with guidance given yesterday by Illinois Governor Pritzker to limit larger gatherings (and especially those that involve elderly populations), the Village is postponing all Barrington’s White House cultural events through May 15, effective immediately.

While we are disappointed, we are taking this step in order to ensure the safety and well-being of our guests, our performers and artists, our staff, and our community. 

We will be working diligently with our performers and artists to find mutually agreeable dates to reschedule these events this summer. Please hold on to your tickets and they will be honored at a future date. Of course, should you wish to receive a refund, you may request one. 

In the coming weeks we will be monitoring the Coronavirus situation and assessing its potential impact on future events this spring. Please stay tuned for more information.

Obviously this is an evolving situation. We will continue to keep you posted as events warrant. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

 If you have questions, please contact Barrington’s White House at 224.512.4066 or

January 25 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

Join us for the 3rd Annual Barrington Town-Warming – a re-creation of the robust discussions held in Barrington during the Depression era. Our keynote speaker is former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who will have a fireside chat with Motorola President and CEO Greg Brown about his new book, Let Me Finish: Trump, the Kushners, Bannon, New Jersey, and the Power of In-Your-Face Politics (all attendees will receive a complimentary copy). The day also features a panel on Media and Politics in an Election Year (featuring Fox 32 Chicago political editor Mike Flannery; WFLD-TV news anchor Corey McPherrin; Chicago Tribune editorial cartoonist Scott Stantis; and Daily Herald editor John Lampinen), as well as a panel on the arts with Barrington native and novelist Veronica Roth; General Director, President & CEO Anthony Freud of the Lyric Opera; CEO Lynn Osmond of the Chicago Architecture Center; and a representative from the Art Institute Chicago. WGN radio personality John Williams will also interview “Teddy Roosevelt” (humanities scholar Clay Jenkinson). Tickets to this extraordinary event are limited and sell out quickly.
