IMPORTANT — RENTALS HALTED

Due to the rising rates of COVID-19, the Mauldin Cultural Center has chosen to halt rentals until further notice. The Cultural Center’s main focus is to provide arts and arts education programs to the community. As we continue to host arts education classes, halting rentals will help us decrease the spread of germs that may lead to the coronavirus, increase social distancing, and extend the life of our sanitation efforts.

Check back here frequently to be the first to know when we feel it is safe to re-open our facility to rentals!


The Mauldin Cultural Center offers space to host your next special event or art class!   Please read each section carefully before contacting the Cultural Center for your next event.


START HERE

  • We are currently accepting reservations and inquiries between August 2020 and August 2021 ONLY. If you would like to inquire about renting space outside of that timeframe, please check back in with us in August 2021 once we have determined our next season. SEE COVID STATEMENT ABOVE.
  • We are currently undergoing a pricing restructure for our auditorium and amphitheater and so are not renting those spaces out. Inquiries regarding the auditorium or amphitheater may not be addressed.
  • Our available spaces accommodate 32 to 64 guests.

WHAT ELSE SHOULD I KNOW?

Rental Hours

When making your reservation, please note that your requested rental hours must include the time you need to set up and clean up.

Our facility is available for rent during the following hours:

Monday – Thursday |  8 a.m. – 10 p.m.
Friday & Saturday |  8 a.m. – 11 p.m.

Rentals are unavailable on Sundays and all major holidays. All dates are subject to the discretion of the Mauldin Cultural Center.

Alcohol Policy

Alcohol is allowed in the facility, but all requests must be submitted no less than 30 days prior to event date, the event host must agree to comply with City of Mauldin’s Alcohol Policy, and the request must be approved by staff. All stipulations and components of the policy MUST be met and followed without exception. Some events will require the purchase of Liability Insurance and security. Security must be arranged through Sgt. Kara Boyd – [email protected]. | Download Alcohol Packet

Liability Insurance

Some lessees may be required to obtain a Liability Insurance Policy for their event that lists the City of Mauldin as co-insured. If your event carries a “special risk” (e.g. alcohol, inflatables, animals, heating elements, etc.), you may be required to obtain a policy.

The City offers a low-cost event-specific insurance program, Tenant User Liability Insurance Program (TULIP). If you believe your event may require this insurance, please contact the Cultural Center staff for the Venue ID Code, which can be used to obtain a quote from OneBeacon Insurance Group.

Does that all make sense? Continue below!


YOU’RE READY TO BOOK!

To reserve your date and time, you must submit a completed rental agreement and a security deposit (in the form of cash, check, or money order only). All checks made payable to the City of Mauldin.

BEFORE YOU SUBMIT THIS AGREEMENT, PLEASE READ IT IN ITS ENTIRETY AND THEN CONTACT THE CULTURAL CENTER TEAM TO CHECK ON AVAILABLE DATES.

Be Ready for the Call — contacting the Cultural Center office, make sure your event qualifies for the rental of our space and that you know the nature of your event, which room you are interested in, what hours you’d like to book, and several dates that work for you.

AUDITORIUM & AMPHITHEATER INQUIRIES

We receive many inquiries regarding our auditorium and amphitheater availability.

We have completed our auditorium renovations, but are taking the time to get used to our new space and tech systems throughout our current season. We are also working on new rental packages and policies for these two spaces.

Don’t worry! Once we have all of those details in place and feel comfortable with our new spaces, we’ll rent them again! Watch this page, sign up for our newsletter, and/or follow us on social media to find out when our spaces are available for rentals again.

If you need a larger space in the meantime, check out our Vendors & Venues list for the ones we recommend!
