Flexible Booking Guidelines:

  • With the state reopening scheduled for June 30, we have implemented flexible booking guidelines to reduce worries for events in 2021 and beyond:
  • New events of all types can be booked through June 30 at 50% capacity or 1,000 unvaccinated guests (whichever is less) or up to 100% capacity for fully vaccinated guests.
  • For all new events booked for July through December 2021, additional backup dates will be provided within the six months following the original booking date.
  • If phased guidelines prohibiting the initial event date are reintroduced, the event date will be moved to the backup date with no additional rental fees, and all deposits will be transferred to the new date.

For more details, see the Governor's Office's guidance on Miscellaneous Venues.
