Our fully heated and air conditioned "barn" is approximately 1600 square feet, equipped with 2 restrooms (one restroom is handicapped accessible). The barn is decorated in a rustic style with open rafter ceilings , all event rentals have access to the entire property area including the grounds and the covered back porch (12x30). Our grounds can accommodate an outdoor party or wedding ceremony if desired and there is plenty of space for a large tent if needed. The property is mostly private and secluded, and the raised planting beds in the back area add to the rustic farm feeling that the barn brings.(large planting beds,shown in arial photos have been removed,only right side beds remain)
guest counts can vary per event, as much as events vary. If you need space for a band,a bar,or a dance floor can all play a part in available space for tables and seating . A cocktail style party will allow for more guests than a seated dinner. Talk to our event rental agent to better assist your guests and capacity.( A rough guide would be upto approx 54-60 seated guests indoors ,and possibly more for a casual affair.) Our general guidelines are under 70 guests

At Surf City Farm, we understand all parties come with a multitude of " themes" and decorations can help convey that theme! on that note a bit about pinterest and decor...
Pinterest can be an amazing tool to help inspire you for your party/ wedding. With that being said, some ideas on pinterest,although beautiful, can take several hours of execution. Please keep this in mind when factoring party times versus set up and clean up times. We are happy to accommodate most decorative requests,but be aware that all decor must be removed completely at the end of the party booking timeframes. If you need addition time before and or after the allowed booking time we can offer an hourly rate as needed. please discuss this with your booking agent before booking an event.
What we do not allow:
*Outdoor live music, we are happy to accomadate any indoor music, live band,DJ..ect.
*Confetti balloons are fine for inside,but horrible for the environment if popped. Please keep them indoors at all times.
Tents are not allowed on the higher land in the back due to septic location, tents and/or any outdoor rental items must be removed in the booking timeframe, or incur an additional fee.
Bounce houses , dunk tanks, cooking grills ect all need PREAPPROVAL from the owner,and will be accompanied by a signed waiver if approved. Failure to seek a preapproval may terminate your party or event immediately.
Surf City Farm is happy to help and answer any questions you may have about hosting an event. We do however highly reccomend using an event planner or coordinator for large.r parties or events
In N.C. your private event does not need a permit to serve beer or wine at your event, the beer and /or wine must be served to your guests free of charge. N.C. does allow for a one day special use permit to allow you to serve (free of charge to your guests) spiritous liquor at your event, the fee for the permit is $50,and approx $26 for cleark of courts back ground check required for the permit, and we can provide you with details on how and where to obtain the permit. The application and all fees associated are paid by the person renting the event space
.We take the N.C. liquor laws seriously and we ask that you do the same.
THIS LINK WILL EXPLAIN THE PROCESS
PRINTABLE 1 DAY APPLICATION
Event times are listing in the booking details, most parties are blocked for 6 hours each except for weddings and meetings, if you need additional time for set up or clean up we are happy to accommodate additional hours before or after at the rate of $100.00/hour. Events that go over the booked and agreed timeframe will be subject to the additional fees.
We rarely book 2 events on the same day ,but in the instance we do..we would not be able to offer any additional time as it would interfere with a pending event. please discuss timeframes before booking and with any event planners or party. coordinators.
We recommend event insurance ,which can be obtained through most local insurance agencies In the event of a named hurricane where safety is an issue, or a state of emergency is in effect during your event dates,we will make every attempt to re-book your eventt as soon as possible. We do not have a generator on sight for any back up power during a power loss due to storms. Due to our proximity to the coast and hurricane season, any repairs suffered during a storm or event could potentially affect booking dates and events while repairs are being made.
