What is your availability?

 We are starting to book events for summer 2019. There is still some room in our Fall 2018 schedule.


Pricing ranges from $400-$3,000 for rental. We are happy to arrange custom packages for events that would not last all day or would not use the great hall. We love hosting community events, so please call to discuss how we can work in partnership to produce an event together.

How much does FREIGHT cost? Are packages available? 


Our peak seasons are June-September. But we are a year round venue.

When is your peak season? 


We have a range of preferred caterers to work with. After a consultation, we can schedule tastings to suit your preferences or send you contact information.

Do you have an in-house caterer or must we hire an outside caterer? 


We have an in-house bar service and all alcohol would be provided through that service. Please call for a bar quote.

Do you provide alcohol or do we bring our own? 


 Yes! We have gorgeous views and backdrops that can serve as the ceremony, the reception, or both!

Can I hold a wedding ceremony at FREIGHT?


 Our Party Priestess, Elsa, is our contact person day and night for all events or inquiries. She is a professional event planner provided in-house. This saves you money and streamlines communication between vendors. Our hourly fee is $40/hour. This includes day-of venue supervision. We also have contacts with local event planners. We’re happy to get you in contact with the best person available to suit your needs.

Who is my contact person? Do you provide event planning services?


FREIGHT is an indoor gathering hall and is equipped with heat.

What is the rain/snow plan? 


We are ADA accessible, but please consider that our floors are historic and come with their own unevenness.

What are the accommodations for disabled guests? 


We are seated in a residential neighborhood, and so, for respect, all music has to be moved inside by 9pm. However, inside FREIGHT we can be partying until 2am. Decor is very open, though no open flames! Let's just discus what you want to do and we'll see what's possible!

Are there additional rules I should know about such as noise policies or rules against certain décor?
