How do you book an activity/event at the Durham County Memorial Stadium?
The first step is to complete the Rental Application for the Stadium Manager and Stadium Authority to review for available event date(s), the nature of the event, the community benefit of the event, the capacity and character of the event planners to manage the proposed event, and the safety of the fans and potential damage to the facility.
What happens once the Rental Application and date(s) is approved?
The next step a formal Rental Agreement (contract) is issued that explains the terms, conditions, requirements, and total fees of the licensee. The necessary authorized signatures are required in order for the event to be approved and included on the calendar.
Who is responsible for concessions/vending?
The Stadium is responsible for all food concessions on the property. Sponsorship and product/merchandizing vending (non-food) is permitted with Stadium Management approval.
When is payment due?
A non-refundable deposit of 25% percent of the the total base rental fee and a damage security deposit of 10% of the base rental fee must be submitted with the signed agreement.
The remaining balance is due at least five (5) business days prior to the event. Payment by cash, money order, or cashier check.
Who provides and pays for security?
Licensee is required and responsible for any and all security during its event and must be provided by the Durham County Sheriff's Office (DCSO). The Durham County Sheriff's Office determines the security coverage necessary for each event. Payment is made directly to the DCSO.
Who handles and receives ticket revenue?
The licensee shall be responsible for ticket sellers, ticket takers, and gate attendants.
