How late can my event go?
Events at the Farm must be over (all guests gone and all cleanup complete) no later than 10pm. All music through any type of speaker must be turned off by 9pm. We strictly enforce this out of consideration for our neighbors and people living on the Farm.

Yes, you can move things around however you want in the tent. You can arrange to visit the farm ahead of time to decide how you want the tent set up in terms of chairs, tables, etc.
How many restrooms are there and how close are they to the event area?
We have an outhouse with two “stalls” near and downhill to the event area.

A refundable deposit of $300 is due just prior to the event to cover any damages to Calypso property, cleaning needs in excess of general event clean-up, etc. If damages exceed the deposit fee, you are responsible and will be billed for them.
All rental fees from your event benefit Calypso’s educational programs!

I’d like to have fresh flowers at my event – can you provide them?
Yes! We can provide fresh flowers from the farm for events July through September! We grow flowers in a variety of colors and textures, and will work with you to create the perfect arrangements for your event. We have a separate order form and questionnaire for flowers – you can view that here on our website.
Fresh vegetables and herbs are available for purchase to incorporate into your menu design! Please ask us for seasonal availability and pricing.
Can we have our event catered?
Yes, you can have your event catered. We have fresh produce from the farm available for purchase to include in any meal you create. You can work a caterer to develop a menu, and then you can purchase produce from Calypso that fits your menu. Just ask us for a list of what’s available at the time of your event!
Do you have dishes (plates, bowls, forks, glasses, etc)?
No, Calypso does not have dishes. If you need help finding someone to rent from, please reach out to us!
Can we have alcohol?
Yes, you can bring your own alcohol (kegs, wine, etc.). If you plan to set up a bar to serve alcohol to your guests, you will need someone with an Alaska TAP card to do the serving. We ask you to be safe, responsible and to have designated drivers or a shuttle for guests who are drinking.
Is there parking on site? If on-site parking is full, where should my guests park?
Yes, there is a small parking lot on site and room for cars along the side of the bottom of the driveway. Any overflow parking can be on the road approaching the farm. You may drive to the event site to drop off supplies and/or guests that need a ride to the site, but no vehicles are permitted to stay parked in the event site or along the driveway past the parking area.
Do you have signage or other aids to direct guests to my event? Are there restrictions of where signs can be placed?
Yes, we do have a Calypso Farm sign at the base of our driveway. You may place any other signs directing your guests where you want them. They must be picked up and taken with you when the event is over.
