Parties at Fiddlesticks Farms | FAQs
Who should be included on your guest list?
As the host, please provide a guest list of who you are willing to pay for at the Parties window in Admissions when you check in. 3 and under are free but should still be written down. You will pay for the guests in advance, as your guests come in, please have them go to the Parties window to have their name checked off the list and they will be given a wristband. If they are not on the list, they must pay for themselves to enter. If you have paid for guests that did not attend, please check out at the same window at the end of your party time and you will be refunded the same way you paid for those missing guests. Please remember that a wristband is required for every person to enter the courtyard. (Please note that online ticket sales are non-refundable. If you are not 100% sure of the final headcount, it is suggested to purchase tickets in person so that we can refund you for guests that you pre-pay for that do not attend)
What is the minimum?
There is no minimum however the maximum is 50. If you require space for more that 50 guests, please feel free to make a second reservation at the same date and time and we will reserve the entire tent for you and your guests. If guests that are not on your guest list arrive, they will be asked to pay their own way into the farm.
A $50.00 clean-up fee will be charged to the card that you used for your reservation if your reserved area is not left the way it was found.
You may decorate for your special event; however it may only be decorated 10 minutes prior to your reservation time. There will be other reservations scheduled before and after yours, so please be considerate of the time. You are welcome to bring balloons and streamers. There are 5 plastic Lifetime picnic tables that are 5′ long and each seat approximately 10 people. You are welcome to put out tablecloths however we can not supply tape or clips to hold them down. We recommend the fitted table cloths if you can find them. Please do not bring a piñata. The tent may not support the weight and it could collapse. Please remove all decorations when your 2 1/2 hour party time ends. If you need more time, please make a second tent reservation for the same tent you originally chose. If you need more space, please make sure to choose tent 1 & 2 OR 3 & 4.
