Parke County Fairgrounds Alcoholic Beverage Policy
Wedding receptions, banquets, and non-youth-oriented programs will be allowed to serve alcoholic beverages. To serve alcohol you will need to get a Temporary Beer & Wine Permit. There will be an additional $250 deposit (on top of the existing building rental deposit) when alcoholic beverages are going to be served. The $250 alcohol deposit and proof of permit or licensed caterer is due on or before the key is picked up. Any damage or excessive cleaning will result in the forfeiture of both deposits and additional charges if needed. No smoking is allowed in any of our rental buildings at any time. All events must be concluded by 12 midnight.
Wine and Canvas Type Events
The state of Indiana has recently allowed beer and wine to be served at one time events if a “Temporary beer/wine permit” is filled out and filed with the local excise office. Liquor cannot be served with this permit and it cannot be in conjunction with any youth activities. The fairgrounds must have a copy of this permit and it can only be used during the temporary function. All servers must be licensed. Permit applications can be obtained online at the Indiana Alcohol Tobacco Commission site.
