All deposits are non-refundable and are not transferable to other dates. If your event is cancelled fewer than 30 days prior to the function date, a cancellation fee of up to 100 percent of the estimated charges on the event agreement may be assessed.

Is there a fee for parking?

There is no fee for parking at any of the venues. For events held in or near the Welcome Center, or held the same day as a Conner Prairie special event, or on Symphony on the Prairie dates, parking for all guests is first come, first served. If arranged for during the contracting process, a limited number of parking passes will be provided for event attendees. The use of these passes does not guarantee preferred parking but will give a few designated guests the chance to park as close as possible to the main building. The passes merely direct the parking attendants to allow access to surface parking; it does not guarantee availability. Any party members who have personal license plates and/or placards for accessible/handicapped parking will be directed to a specific parking lot with proper display and documentation of their plates/placards.
