There is no cookie-cutter description of birthday party venues. They come in all sizes, shapes, and styles. Having said that, there are a few constants, when renting party venues, which we will cover in this article. We are Tarrant Events Center, serving the great City of Fort Worth, Texas. Call us at 817-996-3636 for more information about our event center and to arrange for a tour.
Birthday party venues . . . what you can expect, coming up!
Birthday party venues, the very least
Let’s break this down to the lowest common denominator, since you may end up with no other choices. All birthday party venues should have tables and chairs as part of the rental agreement. To our way of thinking, this is the very least you should expect, no matter where you are or what you rent. Unfortunately, at the bottom of the venue rental rung, that is all you can really count on. Anything over and above that is either a bonus amenity, or it is something you will be charged a surcharge for.
The minimum rental period should be four hours, and in this industry, that is commonly referred to as a half-day rental. Full-day rentals will run eight hours or more. Generally, you will be allowed a minimum of a half-hour to unload, and another half-hour to pack up after the event, but note we said generally.
The bottom line is this: make sure you are fully aware of what is included in your party space rental agreement. Knowledge is power when renting.
Birthday party venues, what you can hope for
Using our own Tarrant Event Center as an example, we not only include tables and chairs, but we also have a moveable stage, cordless microphone, large video monitors, a state-of-the-art sound system, two VIP rooms, and a finishing kitchen, all included in the rental agreement as part of the rental fee. Please note, ours is a high standard in this industry. All you can do is ask at the time you are looking at the event center. If those things are included in the rental agreement, celebrate a win. If they are not, either take your search somewhere else, or plan on renting the amenities you need.
Bottom line about party venues: you will make the biggest difference
There are actually two bottom lines to this discussion about birthday party venues. First, this is a competitive industry, and most event centers are loading up on amenities, as part of the rental package, to make their center appear more desirable.
Second, the quality of the birthday party is still in the hands of the beholder, namely you, the party planner. With creativity and a spectacular vision, you can turn the blandest of birthday party venues into the grandest of events. Plan early, start your search for a venue early, and unleash your creative child.
