Fees & Expenses Take a virtual tour

PERSONNEL

To create a personnel estimate we will need your complete timeline, expected attendance and desired guest services. All events require SFWMPAC Event Managers. Additional staff is available, including coat checkers, set up staff, ticket takers and security. Access starting before 8:00 am or ending after midnight requires hiring a building engineer.

INSURANCE

A Certificate of Insurance with an Additional Insured Endorsement is required for all events and performances. Insurance must include Workers Compensation coverage, Public Liability coverage of $1 million, Property Damage coverage of $1 million and Host Liquor Liability when alcohol is served. Insurance is also available through SFWMPAC. Costs vary based on guest count, event type and length.

EQUIPMENT

Equipment rentals are dependent on the needs of each event. Estimates will be developed at the time of booking. See Equipment for an inventory.

CLEANING AND DAMAGE DEPOSIT

A refundable $300 cleaning and damage deposit is required for all events.

PERFORMANCE BOND

The Performance Bond is a deposit paid to cover all estimated personnel, equipment and insurance, as well as any other costs that fall outside of the rent. It will be used to cover all expenses and any unused portion will be refunded at the time of settlement.

AVERAGE COST

The average cost of an event is based on the rent combined with the Performance Bond. While costs vary widely, most average from $4500 to $5500 for standard events and weddings, and from $2500 to $3000 for nonprofit events.

CATERING & BAR SERVICE

You are welcome to use any licensed caterer of your choice, provided they are properly licensed and insured, adhere to our Rules and Regulations, and conduct a site visit prior to the event. A list of approved vendors will be provided.
