No! We pride ourselves in being upfront with everything. (We are one of the only venue that includes taxes and fees in our base pricing) Please read your brochure thoroughly so that you are completely aware of everything that is included in your booked package. We also clearly state what the prices are for any upgrades or rentals in our brochure. If you have any questions, or are unsure of what is included, please contact your event sales representative. We want you to be well aware & happy with all rental items.
