Kitchens for final food preparations are available for rental for $240.00 per day. Kitchens are located in the Grand Plaza, the Heritage Room, and the North Exhibit Hall. The kitchens are each equipped with a walk-in cooler, ice machines, coffee maker, food warming cabinets, prep table and sinks. There are no facilities for open flame cooking at the Civic Center.
Due to insurance requirements and Environmental Health Department specifications, only final food preparation (not the actual cooking of food) is permissible inside the Civic Center. Special arrangements can be made for cooking outside the building with prior Civic Center administrative approval. Any group using a kitchen without a caterer will be responsible for the kitchen and equipment being left clean at the end of the event.
