Event Requirements

Here are the requirements for scheduling an event:

  • Only members can request to have an event at SFFT
  • Sponsoring Member must be present at the event, and they are responsible for all damages
  • Events must be scheduled more than 60 days in advance, as deposit is due 60 days in advance
  • No private events can be scheduled during the “Theater Season”; all weekends in August.
  • Events are scheduled based on approval by the Board of Directors and availability of a Board Member being able and willing to be present at the event
  • The Event Coordinator will work with the Sponsoring Member to find suitable dates, add the dates to the Event calendar, meet with/talk to the Sponsoring member, prepare contract, and collect deposits

Weddings and Other Private Events at Snoqualmie Falls Forest Theater

Who can rent the facilities?

  • Only members are allowed to rent the property for a private event such as a wedding, reunion, picnic, etc. and the member must be present for the entire time of the event.
  • For weddings, often a family member sponsors such as a parent sponsors the event so the bride and groom do not have to present for the entire time through set-up to clean- up.

What facilities are available?

  • For weddings, the facility fee includes use of the property (based on the number of people on site). There is the option to rent the kitchen, which is a separate charge.
  • On site, we have a large BBQ shelter (with attached kitchen), a building with flush toilets located near the BBQ shelter, and parking area.
  • There is an open-air theater with bench seating, that is available except during the theatrical or performing arts productions (usually late July and all of August).
  • Camping is separate from facility rentals. Camping is available for members (included in the membership) year-round with reservations and members are allowed a maximum of 10 guests.

When can the facilities be rented?

  • Rentals are only allowed on the weekends when there are no scheduled SFFT programs. For weddings or when time is needed before and after the event for set-up and clean-up, then the event should be scheduled for Saturday. For small events, with little to no set-up and the clean-up can be done immediately after the event, a Sunday event would be allowed.
  • Usually, no rentals are available in August as this is in our theater season.

What is included in the rental?

  • For events scheduled on Saturday, the rental will include allowing time to set up for your event on Friday and you will be allowed to clean-up on Sunday, the day after the event. Once the venue is restored to the condition it was prior to rental, garbage placed in the dumpster, and everything clean, the damage deposit check will be returned uncashed.
  • If you rented a tent, furniture, etc. you will need to make arrangements to be on site for pick-up by the rental company (most will not pick up on weekends). You will need to open the gate when the rental company arrives and ensure that only the rental items are removed from the property.
  • The entrance gate will be scheduled to open up to 2 hours before the start of the event and can remain open for a maximum of 8 hours. If your guests are still on property after the gate closing, they can still exit the property by driving up to the gate (i.e. within ~ 4 feet) and the gate will automatically open.


  • You are welcome to contract with any caterer that you choose or you can provide and cook your own food. There is a separate charge for use of the kitchen.
  • If you have a caterer and wish to serve alcohol, you will need to make sure they have a banquet permit and will cover your event.


  • You are responsible for providing all your own decorations, putting them up, and taking them down.
  • No open flames, including candles, tiki torches, etc., are allowed. Decorative candles that do not have a flame, such as flickering battery-operated tea lights and candles are permitted.
  • No decorations, signs, or balloons are allowed on the access gate to the easement (SFFT does not own the gate).
  • No fireworks of any kind, including sparklers, are allowed on SFFT property.
