Events _ Wedding Rental Package 2008


  • pg 1
									The garden and terraces (including two 20' x 40' tents which enclose the terraces) are available for events from April through October. Additionally, we offer a conference room inside the house that is available year-round, and can be used for catering set-up, or for small private events. Hours during which events may be held vary depending on the type of event. Events using the terraces and garden are usually held after public visiting hours between 4:30 and 8:30 p.m., but we would be willing to discuss the flexibility of the hours to accommodate your needs. A 50% deposit and a returned-signed Rental Agreement are required to secure the rental. A security deposit and final payment is due ninety days prior the date of your event. The William Paca House & Garden offers you considerable flexibility in planning your event. Selecting a caterer is an important step in ensuring a successful event. We do not have an “exclusive caterer” that you must use but rather a list of qualified caterers that you may choose from for your event. Caterers have full use of the prep kitchen and conference room. At least two months before your event, we will have a meeting on site with you and your caterer to plan the details of your special day. Thank you for considering the William Paca House & Garden. For more information and to check availability please call Jody Dalton 410-990-4538, or email jody.dalton@annapolis.org
