The Barn at Boyden Farms
It’s definitely time for some fun! Let’s Go Play outside with some fun and fellowship while enjoying lawn games, delicious food, a silent auction, raffle prizes, and more. Together, let’s raise money to support the students of BJAMS and our Playground Project.
BASH 2022 promises to be a night of fun and games! Please join us for the best lawn party of the season! Doors open at 5:00pm. Heavy hors-d’oeuvres will be served by The Roving Feast. Stroll the beautiful farmland of Boyden Valley as you sip a favorite beverage, relax, and play a spirited game of corn hole or bocce ball with new and old friends.
Let’s Go Play! Browse our silent auction and choose from wonderful handcrafted packages that showcase getting out and playing! The auction will open a week before the live event, but bidding will close the night of the event so every bid counts! All bids will be placed online.
As the school remains committed to the health and safety of our community, we want to ensure that each of our guests feels comfortable attending our event. The Barn at Boyden Farms offers plenty of outdoor space for guests to mingle, play, and enjoy. A Roving Feast chef will be present at each food station to help prepare and serve the delicious hors-d’oeuvres inside the spacious barn equipped with a commercial HVAC system. Inside and outside dining options will be available. The silent auction will be displayed inside the barn, but bidding will be virtual through our online platform.

What is BASH? BASH stands for Building a Scholastic Heritage and is the school’s largest fundraising event of the year. Always a fantastic evening to look forward to, our gala usually features food and beverage, a silent auction, 50/50 raffle, and more surprises. All proceeds from this event go directly to our school which benefits and enriches our students’ experiences. This year all proceeds will be allocated to our BJAMS playground project.
When can I buy my ticket? Tickets will be on sale through Eventbrite starting April 1, 2022. Price per person is $65.00 (plus $5.59 service fee if purchased via credit card on Eventbrite). Payment by check to the school prior to the night of the event is also acceptable.
Why is the event outside and what if it’s cold? It’s very important to the school that we not only follow the current health and safety guidelines of our state, but also meet all of our guests’ comfort levels regarding the pandemic. (All health and safety protocols given by the Vermont Department of Health at the time of the event will be adhered to.) The Barn at Boyden Farm has beautiful, lush grounds. We found them perfect for our night of festivities; fun, mingling, lawn games, and more. Heaters and blankets will be provided if the weather turns chilly.
Is the barn ventilated? Yes, it is airy and open. It also boasts a new state-of-the-art commercial HVAC ventilation system as well as being fully heated and air-conditioned.
What happens if it rains? The barn is licensed to hold a capacity of 200 guests. We will be able to quickly relocate inside while still enjoying a wonderful event.
Is there a way for me to attend Mass before the event? Yes, Most Holy Name of Jesus parish in Morrisville has Mass at 4:00pm on Saturday.
What if I have a food allergy? Our caterer, The Roving Feast, will have gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan options available. One of their talented chefs will be at each food station. You may communicate your dietary needs directly to them and have your dinner made to order.
What is BASH like? Ask anyone, BASH is not an event to be missed! Enjoy a night of adult company with old friends and get to know some new friends too. This is a chance to get to know the parents of your children’s friends that they’ve been talking about! Reacquaint with some old friends that you haven’t seen in a while and invite your other friends from different communities to enjoy a night out. Everyone is welcome- BJAMS families and friends, parish members, surrounding community members from other schools, grandparents, and more. Just a friendly reminder that this is an ADULT ONLY event so make plans for a sitter ahead of time.
