For events that are not serving alcohol but ending after 9 PM, the Fairgrounds will contract for Security for the last three hours of the event and invoice in addition to the building rental.
RENTAL SET-UP: We try to be as affordable as possible for our renters which is why we have three options:
- Staff delivers requested items and renter sets-up and tearsdown.
- Staff delivers requested items and renter sets-up then has staff teardown.
- Staff delivers requested items, sets-up and tearsdown.
Options 2 and 3 incur labor charges in addition to rental charges. If you are interested in either of these two options, please let us know.
