Your event is limited to the spaces and time you have rented, please consider this in your set-up and clean-up planning. Stage spaces come “as is” which means production seating, staging, and scenic elements may not be moved for a rental. Office and Scene Shop areas are not included in any rental packages.

Site Manager Fee

A BLUEBARN Staff member must be present for all rentals. The minimum charge for staffing your event is $150 for up to 4 hours, and $25 per hour additional charge for each hour beyond four hours. This charge is in addition to the rental fee. If the rental involves simultaneous indoor and outdoor use, a second site attendant is required for an additional fee.

Deposit

A nonrefundable deposit of 50% of the rental fee is due upon signing. The balance of charges are due 30 days prior to the event. Cash, check, or credit card (Visa, MC, Discover, AmEx) are accepted forms of payment.

Available Resources:

The BLUEBARN makes a variety of resources and personnel available to its guests. These include standard event necessities like A/V equipment, lighting options, technical personnel, and furniture… as well as strange, one-of-a-kind items you’ll only find at the BLUEBARN. For production needs we can’t meet in-house, the BLUEBARN has preferred outside vendors we can direct you toward.
