Q: How do I book a wedding/event in Stewart Park?
A: If you wish to reserve an area in Stewart Park for a specific day and time you may do so by calling the Special Events Coordinator at 1-855-326-1947. Bookings are made on a first-come, first-served basis. The Coordinator can assist you in choosing a location and confirm the reservation for you. The area will be sectioned off and signage will be posted indicating the event. Park staff will be available to ensure the area is reserved for your use, and to make sure it’s tidy before and after the event. A $100 administrative fee will apply (+ HST) and is due at the time of booking. The public is permitted to use the park on any given day, however, the Town reserves the right to section off areas for private weddings and special events that are pre-arranged. These areas will be unavailable to the public for the specific event times. Any area in the park will only be reserved for a maximum of 4 hours. Back-to-back bookings by the same group/individual will not be permitted (excluding public events such as the Stewart Park Festival). Individuals or groups planning to bring in chairs, tables, stage, tents or other equipment must make arrangements to do so with the Coordinator prior to the event. A contract is required to formally reserve an area in Stewart Park. The Town’s cancellation policy states that a refund can be given with at least 48 hours notice prior to the event, less a $50 administrative fee.
