The beach is a public space and is not part of the permitted area.

Standard time frame includes one (1) hour for setup, four (4) hours for your event and one (1) hour to breakdown and cleanup. All event setup and breakdown is to be completed during the hours of your rental period, as outlined in your rental agreement. Additional hours may be reserved, based upon availability.




Do you have any Recommended Vendors?


We are pleased to provide a list of recommended vendors: everything from caterers, to DJs, florists to staffing solutions. Please note, however, you are more than welcome to utilize any vendor in our reception venues. If Permittee uses any outside vendors on Town property, a copy of the vendor’s Certificate of Insurance is required.




Is there a noise ordinance?


As our reception venues are located within a residential district, it is necessary for sound to be kept within a reasonable level. In accordance with our local Noise Ordinance, all music must stop by 10:00pm Sundays and weekdays, 11:00pm Fridays and Saturdays.




Insurance/Liquor License?


Permittee agrees to provide a Certificate of Insurance in accordance with the rental agreement a minimum of sixty (60) days prior to event. If Permittee intends to offer a cash bar or include alcohol as part of ticket cost, a Temporary Liquor License is required.




Decorations?


Decorations are permitted as long as they do not permanently alter the reception venue (no nails, tacks, staples or products that will leave permanent marks or remove paint from walls). Candles are permitted, as long as they are glass-enclosed. Please note, sky lanterns, pyrotechnics and traditional wedding send off materials are prohibited.




Parking?


We provide complimentary parking for guests attending functions at our reception venues. From Memorial Day through Labor Day, an attendant will be onsite to direct your guests to available parking. Outside of the summer season, parking is available in our main, paved parking lot.




Wedding Suite?


Our Pavilions do not come equipped with a wedding suite. Many couples opt to reserve accommodations at one of our local hotels or a short-term rental in the immediate area.




Trash Removal/Cleaning


Permittee is responsible for leaving the reception venue in a clean, orderly manner. The space must be left in the same condition in which it was presented upon arrival. Permittee is responsible for removal of all trash, event décor, etc. from reception venue at the end of the rental period.




Storage


All event items must be delivered immediately prior to event and removed immediately following event. Pre/Post Event Storage will need to be requested in advance and is subject to availability.




Dance Floors?


You are not required to rent a dance floor at either pavilion; the open space will act as a dance floor. On average, our Penfield Pavilion can accomodate up to 150 guests comfortably with an average-sized dance floor; our Jacky Durrell Pavilion can accomodate up to 85 guests comfortably with an average-sized dance floor.




What do our Chairs look like?


Both Pavilions include tables & chairs for your convenience. Our chairs are a dark-grey padded banquet chair. Any of the white/gold/silver/wood chairs that you see in pictures have been rented from outside vendors.
