Rental Information


All contract holders must:
  • Be at 21 years of age; and
  • Have valid forms of ID and residency. Valid forms of ID include a driver's license, utility bill, deed to house, signed lease agreement, homeowner's insurance policy or renter's insurance policy
Contracted hours include setup and breakdown time for all vendors. The schedule for rental time allows two hours for setup and decorating and one hour at the end to completely clean the facility. The actual event time is about 4 hours. Due to liability issues, access to the facility by all parties - including the coordinator, florist, decorator, DJ/band, photographer, etc. - is allowed only at the start of the contracted time. If anyone enters before the contracted period, the contract holder will be held liable and could be charged additional fees, which will be deducted from the security deposit.
