Demmitt Hall Rental Information

The Demmitt Hall is the perfect facility for concerts, weddings, family reunions, conferences, meetings, courses, retreats, birthday parties, and much more.  Fees below pertain to wedding weekend rentals.  For rates for other shorter events, please contact Shelley 780-536-0498.  Please have information ready such as type of event, how many people, facilities required (ie bar, kitchen, camping etc), length of event.  These will all have a bearing on the fee charged.

 

Rental Fees and Payment

The 2019 weekend package rental rate is $1800 for Friday at 12:00pm until Sunday at 3:00pm. A deposit of $900 is due upon booking to secure the desired date. This fee also becomes your damage deposit.  The rental fee of $1800 will be due 60 days prior to your booked date.  (A total of $2700 will be required to be paid prior to your wedding)

 

Dates will not be secure until the $900 deposit is paid.  It will be returned to you in full within 2 weeks after the wedding assuming there is no damage to the hall, excessive cleaning required, breaches of contract or hall guest rules (including breaking liquor license rules or bringing pets in).   If excessive mess is left behind the renter will be charged an hourly rate for the hall to be cleaned.  If there is damage to the hall the Demmitt Cultural Society has the right to keep all or a portion of the $900 damage deposit as necessary for repairs.  Should there be issues with the bar (people bringing in outside alcohol, taking alcohol from bar anywhere other than the hall or west deck, or any kind of abuse toward the bartenders), the bartenders have the right to recommend keeping all or a portion of the damage deposit.

 

Maximum Capacity

The maximum capacity for the hall during a wedding is 275.  The renter is responsible for making sure they do not exceed this number as per fire regulations.

 

Viewings

Hours for viewings are by appointment only. Please note weekend viewings during prime rental seasons are unavailable. Each wedding is allowed two viewings.  Additional viewings are $100. 

 

Water

The water at the hall comes from a well, we routinely have it tested and it is safe for drinking.  We supply 2 large bottles of water for the water cooler as well additional bottles can be purchased for $10 each.

 

Smoking

Our hall is timber framed and the walls are made of straw bales so we ask that if you have anyone who smokes please do so only in the parking lot and please dispose of cigarette butts in the appropriate butt containers as we don’t want a discarded butt to start a fire.

 

Bar

The rental fee includes two bartenders for the evening, however should the bar clear less than $400 in sales $200 will be deducted from the damage deposit to cover the cost of the bartenders.  Drinks are $5 and a popular selection of beer, wine, coolers, and spirits are available.  Ice and mix are included.  Pop, water, and juice can be purchased for $1.  Bartenders are not responsible for coffee, tea and/or punch.  Last call for alcohol sales is at 1:00 am Alberta time.  Alcohol sales may be refused based on the discretion of the bartenders.  Homemade alcohol is not permitted.  The liquor license only allows for alcohol consumption in the hall and on the deck.  Alcohol is not permitted on the grounds, parking lot or bridge.

Table wine and special alcohol requests are to be purchased by the rental party.  A copy of the receipt is to be provided at the time of rental. 

Please note that it is a cash bar, there is no atm at the hall, and only a small amount of cash is available through square.  Guests should plan to bring cash.

 

Lawn & grounds

The lawn is mowed as necessary during the summer.  Additional mowing can be arranged for $25/hr if reasonable notice is provided.  Snow will be removed from the parking lot, walkways, and entrances in the winter. 

 

Pets

The food safe license does not allow pets in the hall at any time with the exception of certified helper dogs.  Pets on the grounds are to be controlled and cleaned up after.  Loss of damage deposit could occur if pets are brought into the hall, and cleaning fees if doggie bags are not used on the grounds.  Please ask your guests to find alternate accommodation for their pets that cannot be left outside tied up, or in campers for long periods of time.  

 

Camping

Camping is permitted in the parking lot and within the fenced area outside the hall.  There are no hookups and all campers are responsible for their own water and electricity.  Plugging in trailers or showering at the hall is not permitted.  Anyone caught in the field outside the fenced area will be asked to leave and it will result in termination of the rental contract and loss of the $900 damage deposit. Do not park on the ball diamond at the old hall location as it does get used in the summer.   All campers must take their garbage with them

 

Campfires

Campfires are allowed in the approved fire pit if no fire bans are in place.  Firewood is not provided.  The firewood in the wood shed is the property of the hall and is used in the winter.  The burning of garbage is not permitted.

 

Insurance

The Demmitt Cultural Society has insurance and is covered in the event that a party is injured at the hall and that party decides to sue.  The renter is NOT covered by the hall policy and could potentially be sued as the function is the responsibility of the renter.  Therefore, all renters are required to obtain their own insurance coverage for their rental period.
