The rental fee for single-day events is $500 for up to a 5 hour event. You will be allowed up to 3 additional hours for set up prior to your event and up to 2 additional hours for clean up after your event. We offer a $100 discount for Berryville residents (i.e., $400 for a 5-hour rental for Berryville residents). We do not pro-rate or discount the rental fee if your event is less than 5 hours or for smaller groups.
The rental fee for two-day events is $800 which allows for set up the entire day before a large event such as a wedding, etc. Please contact us if you need the hall for more than two days.
Can I set up the night before?
The rental fee includes set up on the same day as your event. If you are having a large event that requires extra time for set up (such as a wedding, etc.), you should consider renting the hall for 2 days. This allows you the entire day prior to your event for set up.
How late can we stay?
The town of Berryville has a noise ordinance starting at 10pm. This means all music, loud conversation and noise must cease at 10pm. You may clean up after 10pm, but please be respectful of our neighbors and the fire/EMS crews sleeping in the building.
How big is the social hall?
The hall is 50 by 60 feet, 3,000 square feet. In addition, you have use of our commercial kitchen, stage, and attached bathrooms.

Although the state caps capacity at 275 people, approximately 200 people can be seated at tables leaving room for a food service line. If you intend to leave room for a dance floor, seating capacity will be less.
Do you have tables and chairs?
Yes. Your rental includes access to 35 8-foot rectangular tables and 250 chairs. Please do not slide tables or chairs (especially when stacked) across the floor as this can cause significant damage to the finish. If we must have the floors refinished due to damage, you will be charged for repairs (and it’s not cheap).
Do you have staff to set up/clean up the hall for me?
No. Renters are responsible for all of their own set up and clean up. This includes putting away all tables and chairs, sweeping and mopping the floor, taking all trash to the dumpster, cleaning the kitchen and cleaning the bathrooms. We have brooms, mops, mop buckets, and cleaning supplies located in a broom closet across from the men’s bathroom. There are extra trash bags in the kitchen and you may dispose of your rental-related trash in our dumpster located in the parking lot. Please place clean bags in all trash cans after emptying them. IF YOU DO NOT CLEAN UP AFTER EVENT, YOU WILL BE CHARGED A CLEANING FEE AT CURRENT RATES OF A PROFESSIONAL CLEANING SERVICE.
