FAQs

I heard about one of your fabulous upcoming events, how do I purchase a ticket?

All of our public sponsored events will be listed on our Events page along with the link for tickets. If you don't see the event you are searching for, it may be a private event or an event sponsored by another person or organization. In that case, you will have to get in touch with the event sponsor.

May we bring our own caterer?

Of course you may! If you are looking for a caterer, there are some on our preferred vendors page.

May I come see the venue prior to booking?

Yes! We are happy to give you a walk through of the venue during one of our scheduled open houses. If you need to request a visit outside of those times, please contact us to make arrangements.

Is there a dressing or preparation room available?

In addition to our main hall, our media room can be converted to a bridal suite/dressing room for an additional fee. Contact us for more details.

When can I start setting up for my event?

Your setup time begins at the time of your contract rental time.

When does everything need to be removed from the space?

We expect the venue to be cleared and everything removed by the end of your contracted rental time.

How do I reserve my date?

Please contact us to reserve your date for your special event. We require a 50% nonrefundable deposit and the balance is due14 days prior to your event. In addition, you will need to sign a contract and either provide a credit card on file or provide a cash security deposit which will be returned after your event if there are no issue.

How far in advance do I need to book my event?

The sooner the better. We get requests for the same dates all the time. If your date is available when you first inquire, that is the best time to book.
