Can I bring my own caterer? And do you have a kitchen?
We have a wonderful in-house hospitality team that provides all of the catering at The August House. This team is made up of some of the best food, beverage and service professionals in the province (we feel like we're the luckiest to have them!). The culinary and beverage team is diverse - we have experts in everything from pastries to BBQs - and we're happy to work with couples to create a food offering that best-fits your culinary desires!
Can I bring my own alcohol?
The August House is a licensed destination, which means all event-related alcohol must be purchased and served through our hospitality team. For a full bar menu, please contact us.
Do you rent tables/chairs/linens/AV?
As part of all wedding packages, The August House provides basic service ware. For 2023 weddings, tables, chairs, linens and AV equipment all need to be sourced by the couple. In 2024, we will be pleased to include tables and chairs (for up to 60) as part of our wedding packages.
Can I bring in a DJ and what is required?
Yes, you can bring a DJ. Bands with drums are not permitted. In all cases, because we're located in town with nearby neighbours, we need to follow the local noise by-law, which requires noise to drop from 65 dBA to 55 dBA at 10:00 p.m. All parties in Lillian Hall are required to wrap by midnight.
What are the required event end times?
We wrap all events up by midnight so that we can ensure you have lots of time for fun and our neighbours get good night’s sleep.
Do you have parking?
There is parking available on the property and in our vacant lot across the street. There's also street parking available for any overflow requirements.
