Policies Reserving A Date

Guarantees

Labor

Potential clients can contact Patty Farmer at (303) 871-4438 or pfarmer@du.edu to check availability and reserve a tentative date.. To book the space on a definite basis, a signed contract is required. We will only hold space for 7 days without a signed contract.

The Knoebel Events team would like to be notified of your exact number of guests three business days prior to your event date in order to ensure the success of your function. If the number is not confirmed, the most recent count received will be considered the guarantee. Final charges will be based on the guarantee or the actual attendance, whichever is higher.

We do not charge a service charge percentage, but instead apply a labor fee to each event. This charge corresponds with the actual staffing levels needed to properly execute your event.

Food and Beverage Policies We ask that menu and set up selections are finalized at least four weeks prior to your functions. A detailed event order will be completed at that time for your review and approval. Only food and beverage provided by Knoebel Events can be consumed on property.

Payment All functions must have a secured form of payment on file before they occur. Credit cards, verifiable company or cashiers checks, and cash are considered valid payment methods. Credit cards will be preauthorized three business days before the event for the remaining estimated charges.

Changes Changes can be made to your event order up to three business days before your event. At three business days before your event, all details are considered final (including but not limited to timelines, set up, and food). Any changes made within three business days are made based on the availability of the venue and are subject to a minimum $150 change fee.
