"Big Venue, Small Price", An Eventective User
The space in the Ag Pavillion is large and the price is reasonable. It is not the fanciest venue, but it gets the job done. Only 150 chairs and 20 tables were included in the rent. It was extra for additional chairs and tables, for the kitchen, for a stage if you want for the head table, for decorating the day before or picking up the day after. You have to either have a liquor license or give your liquor away for free. The option of giving liquor away was great for us. My husband's uncle owns a bar and got us liquor at cost. We got all of our beer, wine, hard alcohol for approximately the cost of two kegs at any other venue we looked at. You also have to provide your own insurance. None of these things were problems in our case. We wanted round tables instead of rectangular anyways, so we had to rent from AAA. It didn't matter how many were included. My husband owns his home, so we simply added the Fairgrounds to the policy temporarily. It worked out great!
