Sugarcreek Township Fire Hall in East Brady PA
This past Saturday I had the chance to DJ a wedding reception held at the Sugarcreek Township Fire Hall in East Brady PA. Over the years, I have performed at hundreds of different banquet halls throughout Western Pennsylvania, but have never been to the Sugarcreek Township Fire Hall. So, naturally I was a little bit apprehensive about what type of facility I would be faced with.
Saturday arrived and I made the 35 minute journey from Slippery Rock over to Sugarcreek Township. When I arrived I was quite surprised. The Sugarcreek Township Fire Hall is actually a very nice banquet hall. The hall was built just a few years ago and is maintained very well.
The main hall measures approximately 75′ X 75′ and can easily accommodate several hundred guests. Located at the one end of the hall is a large, fully equipped, commercial kitchen. There is also a bar area with large built in coolers for drinks.
The main hall has white walls with an elegant oak wainscoting. There are 3 brass & crystal chandeliers in the center of the hall and matching wall sconces on each of the side walls to provide lighting. The restrooms are large enough to handle a wedding with several hundred guests and are clean and easily accessible. The entire banquet hall is handicap accessible and has multiple access points to allow for easy load-in for decorations, vendors, etc.
The Sugarcreek Township Fire Hall does not provide the bartenders, alcohol, or mixers. These items must be provided by the bride & groom. This can result in a savings of several hundreds of dollars for thrifty brides & grooms. The hall also allows brides & grooms to arrange for their own caterers, or you can use their in-house catering services. Prices as of June 2009, for their in-house catering, range from $8.00 – $12.00 per person depending on food choices. Two advantages of using their in-house catering are 1) the cost of the hall rental is less with their catering 2) they do not charge sales tax on the food.
The cost to rent the hall is very reasonable and varies based on the day of the week. These are the rates as of June 2009.
- $500.00 – Friday & Saturday WITHOUT catering from STVFD
- $300.00 – Friday & Saturday WITH catering from STVFD (min. 150 people)
- $250.00 – Sunday thru Thursday
- $150.00 – for 3 hours or less
