Dance Floor

Burhans Hall Dance Floor (12 x 12 ft. parquet) $100

Rental of our dance floor is required for your event if any dancing will occur. Many rental companies do not drop off or pick up dance floors on Saturdays and Sundays. Due to the extra labor and liability that would be incurred by our venue if we were to disassemble and move an outside vendor’s dance floor, we do not allow the option of renting a dance floor from outside vendors.

For a flat fee of $40, you may also rent any/all of the table decorations listed below:

Founders Union Only

Bubble bowls, various sized vases, various sized table mirrors, small candle holders (must be returned clean), and misc. small items.

Burhans Hall Only

Bubble bowls, flower vases, small table mirrors of either square or round shape, decorative pebbles of various colors, large clear decorative pebbles, clear decorative marbles, and decorative small diamonds of various colors.

Please note that we do not guarantee a set amount of inventory for any of the décor items. We are happy to show you the items before you decide if you would like to rent them for your event.

Decor items are building specific. Items from one building cannot be rented for the other building.

All extra rental items are subject to a 6% sales tax.

Tax exempt organizations must provide a purchase exemption certificate.
