Events are often booked a year in advance. Last minute changes are difficult and costly. In recognition that a re-rental on short notice often isn’t possible, we enforce a strict cancellation policy. Events cancelled more than 6 months in advance will be charged 25% of total rental fees, with the balance of rental fees and deposit being returned to you. If you cancel your event 3-6 months in advance, you will be charged 50% of the total rental fees. Events cancelled 1-3 months in advance are subject to a charge of 75% of rental fees, and rental fees for events cancelled less than 30 days prior will not be refunded. In all cases, deposit amounts will be refunded.

Event Liability Insurance (also referred to as CGL, Commercial General Liability or Spectator Liability) is an insurance policy designed to provide broad protection for situations in which an event holder(you) must defend themselves against lawsuits or pay damages for bodily injury or property damage to third parties. Host liquor liability is included if there is no transfer of money for alcohol. This policy also gives protection to the venue and or sponsors of the event by adding them to the policy as an additional insured.
