Facility Rental Terms & Conditions

Please know that the hours for which you reserve the room should include all setup and clean-up time, and please also be considerate to other renters who may be in the space immediately before or after your rental by not entering early (unless you’ve checked with us first) and by leaving the space at the agreed-upon time.

Please leave the facility as (or better than) you found it. The Manatee Performing Arts Center is able to offer affordable rates because we count on our community to be considerate to one another by returning the room to a neat and presentable state at the end of all rentals.

Rentals are not guaranteed until paid in full, unless other arrangements have been made.

Renters may not transfer their rentals to a third party.


It is important that no food or drinks be place in or on the piano, ever. The Manatee Performing Arts Center keeps our Yamaha baby grand piano well-maintained by having it tuned on a regular basis. Additional fees will apply if you require a special day-of-concert tuning and/or moving of the piano to elsewhere in the building.


We have stackable chairs and tables for your use that you may set up and move as you like. When you are finished with them, the chairs are to be stacked no higher than 10 and placed in the appropriate storage area.

Please take care not to scratch the floor by dragging heavy furniture, guitar amps, etc., across it. If you need to move something heavy, please pick it up with a partner or use a moving dolly.


Clients may cancel a booking no later than 60 days prior to the date and time of said booking and receive a full refund within 30 business days less deposit. Clients will receive a 50% refund on bookings cancelled by the client no later than 59 days prior to said booking.

Exceptional circumstances resulting in a cancellation may be taken into account at the discretion of Manatee Performing Arts Center. The Center reserves the right to cancel bookings for a full refund and will make every effort to give reasonable notice.


No party glitter, ever. Really. You know why.

Any property damage during a rental, beyond regular wear and tear, will result in a surcharge to the renter of not more than repair cost (parts and labor) plus lost revenue due to room damage.

Please feel free to call us with questions 941-749-1111.
