    ABOUT

    We are able to offer significant discounts for 501c3 non-profit organizations, neighborhood groups, and artists. Depending on the date, we can also sometimes offer even further discounts for educational arts related events that support youth or low income families.

    As part of our nonprofit mission, we partner with you or your organization to present the event and are often able to subsidize/sponsor the cost by even 50% or more. We also offer 4 or more very low cost rentals per year to small startup nonprofits who are well organized and fit our mission.

    To keep things sustainable here, our rates do vary depending on the month, day of week, number of people attending, public or private event, food & drinks, event complexity, staffing, AV & other equipment uses, and even how far out the event is scheduled. For example, if we have a date available 30-60 days out, we can often book that at a lower cost for your group.

    Pricing really does vary but if you need some estimated numbers now, here’s a guide…

    ONGOING

    • Typical evening timeframe is 4p-Midnight but that can shift earlier on weekdays. Additional hours are $100/hr.
         Ballard Homestead timeframe is 2 hours earlier due to noise ordinance, most events completed by 9:30pm.

    Rates vary depending on the time of year mostly and also how far in advance the date is.Your cost may be in the lower range if we are able to book another separate event on the floor you don’t need.

      • Additional staffing is typically $25/hr for sound tech ($100 minimum), bartender, event staff, etc.
      • Additional planning meetings are $50 each (1 hour onsite with our Events Planner).  One 15-20 minute walkthrough meeting is already included in your quote and other times available for your team to attend a tour if additional time in the space is needed to plan your layout.
      • We generally require event insurance from nonprofits or companies and that requirement may vary for individuals depending on the event size.

      • A 50% deposit is required (of your base rental rate) to lock in the date.
