Our sound system is great for live music, production plays, and dance recitals. We have hanging speakers and microphones. However, if your sound needs require extra equipment, the responsibility is on you to rent the extra equipment.

We request that your music is shut off by 10:00pm and your event is cleaned up by 11:00 am to respect the surrounding neighbors.

You and your team of vendors are responsible for fully setting up our inventory yourself. We provide tables and chairs, however, if you choose to use our inventory, you are responsible for setting it all up to your liking. However, we need everything you bring for your event to be removed at the end of the night, including your decor and all rentals!

We require a 50% nonrefundable first payment upon signing the contract. We are happy to put a date on a tentative hold for you. If someone else requests your date, we ask that a contract is signed and payment is made within 48 hours to keep holding your date.

There are no taxes or service charges involved using our space. The only additional required fee is the refundable security deposit of $250 that is returned to you after the event pending no damages.

The usage fee and payment are not a donation due to goods or services being received. We do however re-utilize these funds to go directly to our programming supporting our Monarch School students and families.
