Do I require an event rental?

Event rentals at OMCA require a different type of reservation than a picnic table rental. A reservation including or doing any of the following is considered an event rental:

  • Amplified sound and/or musical instruments.
  • Groups larger than 30 people.
  • Selling of anything, including various products, food, merchandise, or tickets.
  • Advertising an event as "ticketed" or “open to the public.”
  • Requiring special setup of stages, tents, barricades, fences, tables, or other items requiring complex load in or electricity. Setup of catering is only permissible with an event rental.
  • Reserving a date and time farther ahead than our online reservation system allows
