Other Events

Lakeside Occasions is the perfect venue for other events such as corporate outings, holiday celebrations, family reunions, showers, graduations, birthdays, and anniversaries, engagements, etc.

Because we are primarily a wedding venue, other events may only be booked on available weekdays or Sundays within 60 days of the event.  Hours of use must fall between 11 am and 10 pm. Please fill out our Contact Form to inquire about availability.

Rental rates are as follows:

The Coop (accommodates 30-50 guests) $750 for 5 hours (+$150/additional hour)

A non-refundable down payment of half the rental fee is required to reserve your date, along with a completed rental agreement. The remaining balance is due no later than 2 weeks prior to the event.

A Security Deposit is required with your final payment. The amount depends on which space you are renting and may range from $150-$500. It is refundable unless there are damages, excessive cleaning was required, or policies were violated.

Lakeside Occasions will deduct the cost of cleanup and/or repairs from the Security Deposit and provide an itemized list of costs with the balance (if any) within two weeks of the event.
