Frequently Asked Questions

Have questions about District Six? We are here to help!

We've included several FAQs below, but should you have additional questions, don't hesitate to contact us.

Wedding Decorations

Do you require
a deposit?

We require a $150 security deposit at confirmation of booking. Should there be no damage or other incidentals during your event, your deposit will be refunded to you after the event. 

The full cost of your rental will be due 30 days prior to your event.

I need to cancel my event. Can I get my deposit back?

Events canceled 30 days or more before the event date may transfer their event to a new date at no additional cost.  After 30 days, event date changes are at the discretion of venue management.

Can I arrive early to set
up for my event?
Can I stay late to clean
up my event?

Typically, set up and clean up are accounted for in the rented time slot. If our day’s event schedule allows, we will do our best to accommodate extra set up and clean up time so that you can enjoy your celebration to the fullest.

Can I rent the space for less than four hours?

We offer several weekday and weekend packages however we realize that not every event will fit into a pre-set package. If you have a unique scheduling need, let’s chat! Contact us.

How late in the evening can my event run?

Events must conclude
promptly by 11 pm.

Can I bring in my own food?

Yes. We allow event hosts to serve their own food.

If I hire a caterer, do I have to choose from a preferred vendor list?

No. We have a list of caterers we recommend, but do not require our event hosts to choose from that list. Caterers must provide proof of insurance and proper licensing to the venue management prior to the event date.

I plan to serve alcohol at my event. What do I need to do?

In accordance with Indiana state law, any alcohol must be served by a licensed bartender and proof of license must be provided prior to the event date. This ensures the safety of all event guests and our historic property. We have a list of bartenders-for-hire available or your caterer may provide one. 

How many parking spots
are available?

Parking is currently limited at District Six (but we have plans to add more space!) and we have approximately 10-12 parking spots available. Please do not park in the grass or along the county roads bordering our property. We suggest reaching out to Southside Elementary School or the Bartholomew County Fairgrounds to request use of additional parking.

Do you allow wedding receptions?

Due to our limited capacity and parking, we are currently not a good fit for most wedding receptions. Should you be interested in our space for a small wedding reception, feel free to contact us.

What appliances are
provided in the kitchen?

Our kitchenette includes a full size refrigerator, ice machine, sink, and microwave.


How much will I have
to clean?

We ask that our event hosts remove their trash, ensure the refrigerator is emptied, wipe down counters and tables that were used, and return any moved furniture to its original location. We provide replacement trash liners and cleaning supplies.
