The Bridge Event Center is currently closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic and rising levels of community spread of the virus.  We look forward to the day when we can safely open and host events again.  In anticipation of reopening we are accepting inquiries for events beginning June 1, 2021. If you are interested in a specific date, a “Hold” can be requested for that date if it is available.  It will come with a ‘right of first refusal’ if another interested party asks about that same date. An Event Coordinator will contact you to determine your level of interest before releasing the date.  If local, State, and federal guidelines permit and it is determined we are safe to open, a refundable deposit can be placed on a “Hold” to reserve your date. 

Event Coordinators will be actively monitoring local conditions and be in conversation with you as event planning progresses.  If you wish to cancel or postpone your event, you can do so at no financial risk, within 7 days of the scheduled event.  Your deposit and payments will be fully refunded. 

To ensure the health and happiness of our clients, our staff, and your guests, we may require adherence to health and safety policies based on the current governmental health guidelines. These will be provided no later than 7 days prior to your event.  Failure to follow these guidelines could result in extra cleaning fees and all (or a portion) of the damage deposit not being refunded.  We reserve the right to assess the extent of non-compliance and respond with appropriate consequences. 

We look forward to serving you again. In the meantime, stay well and safe.
