Frequently Asked Questions

How many guests can your facility hold?

Please refer to our Capacity Chart for all of our room capacities

How do I secure my date?

The first step in securing your date is filling out a special event application. Once received, our staff will verify your date is available and approve your application. Your date is now tentatively secured! We will then generate a contract and send to the email given on the application. You will have 10 days to return the signed contract with your deposit and then your date will be fully secured. If we do not have a signed contract within 10 days, your date will no longer be tentatively secured.

A signed contract and date-hold deposit (50% of rental fee) must be received to reserve your date(s) and time(s).

American 1 Event Center Rental Application

What does the room fee include?

Tables and chairs, up to 400 people, are included in all room rentals for Radabaugh & Sisk Hall. Tremaine Meeting Room also comes with tables and chairs along with 3 large TV’s with HDMI hookups making it the perfect location for presentations and virtual meetings. Additional tables and chairs can be rented from the American 1 Event Center if needed. Table linens are also available to be rented through the American 1 Event Center with at least 14 day notice.

May I bring in my own food or an outside caterer?

We do not have a preferred caterer at the American 1 Event Center. You may use any licensed catering company that you would like. We are also happy to provide a list of wonderful caterers who have previously worked in the building! 

May I decorate the room?

Yes! In Radabaugh and Sisk Hall’s we have a wire on 3 of the 4 walls that can be used to hang decorations. No nails, screws, staples, or penetrating items are to be used on our walls, floors, or ceilings. NO candles, glitter, foil (non-paper), or confetti is allowed on site. Balloons are not permitted without prior written approval by the Event Center Manager. Only low tack tape is allowed on our floors and wall. Any damage will be charged after your event.

How late can my event go?

Music and alcohol service needs to end by 11pm at the latest. Please accommodate for time to clean up and tear down when planning the end time of your event. All clean up must be done and guests will need to be out of the building by midnight. 

What if I need more time before or after my event?

As long as we do not have an event the day before or after your event, you will have the option to pay for additional set up/tear down time. We also offer a teardown fee, which includes us gathering all of your decorations and holding them for up to 48 hours so you don’t have to worry about it that night.

What do I have to do at the end of the evening?

Rental rooms should be returned in the condition received. All items and property must be removed by the end of your rental period unless you decide to include the teardown fee. You or your caterer will be responsible for clearing any trash off the tables and disposing it in the provided waste bins. We will take the trash out throughout the night and at the end of the night!

Does my event require insurance?

Yes. All events will need to have insurance. The exceptions to this are business meetings and small private social gatherings that involve no organized physical activity. These events will still be required to execute a hold harmless agreement with the County of Jackson.

All events are also required to complete a credit card authorization form that is sent with each contract. This form will be used for any last minute add on charges or damages that may occur during your event.

Will staff be there during my event?

Yes! We will have staff present during your entire event.
