Kennesaw adopts rental rates for Depot Tunnel Amphitheater

The Kennesaw City Council voted 5-0 Jan. 3 to approve a policy on use of the Depot Tunnel Amphitheater, including rental rates.

These rates will be $50 for the security deposit, $30 per hour for a Kennesaw resident with a two-hour minimum and $50 per hour for nonresidents, also with a two-hour minimum.

Rentals canceled in writing 15 days before the event will be subject to a cancellation fee of $15.

No refunds will be given for cancellations made with less than 15 days’ notice or for weather conditions.

However, a credit due to inclement weather will be issued towards future rental and/or program registration.

For special events that are open to the public, a $50 application fee will apply in addition to rental fees for the outdoor classroom space.

Special event requests must be made 90 days in advance through the city’s Events Committee.

Accommodating up to 60 people, the amphitheater may be reserved 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Sunday.

Prohibited are alcoholic beverages, glass containers, the use of tobacco/e-cigarette products, amplified sound, commercial use and special entertainment or equipment such as moonwalks, dunk tanks or inflatables.

No sales may take place without advance approval of the Parks and Recreation director.

Also, no decorations or temporary fixtures may be affixed to any railings, light fixtures, walls or kiosks with tape, nails, tacks, staples or any application that will cause irreversible damage.
