At the August 11, 2020 Council Meeting, Council approved the opening of 2020 rentals of the Lac Cardinal Hall until September 15th, 2020. The Hall will re-open for rentals once again in May 2021.
All rentals will be required to strictly follow Alberta Health Guidelines and MD of Peace Guidelines as per the UPDATED Facility Rental Agreement – Cleaning Inspections – COVID/19 Addendum that renters are required to sign.
The Lac Cardinal Hall, built in 1949, is located in the Recreation Lease managed by the M.D. of Peace on the eastern shore of Lac Cardinal. The Municipality rents the 60′ X 100′ hall for all types of functions, usually only from May to October, as it is not kept heated during the winter months. For wedding parties or dine & dances, it will hold approximately 225 people at tables. For functions not requiring table seating, maximum capacity could be 375.
The hall is very unique in that it has a railing all around the perimeter of the hall, with various stories told as to the original purpose of the railing.
A NEW 24′ x 26′ kitchen was added onto the north end of the hall in 2015. It is equipped with an upright cooler, 6 burner commercial gas range with oven, 3 sinks and a small chest freezer. Although there are no dishes or small appliances, there is plenty of counter space for caterers to work on for food preparation, as well as cupboards. The kitchen can be rented independently if needed.
The hall has attached bathrooms with hot water, and a small stage is located at one end of the hall. In 2016 the hall was further renovated by updating the bar, storage areas and the interior of the hall itself. In 2017 the bathrooms were renovated as well as the front entry, which is now wheelchair accessible. There are 30 new 5′ round tables, 250 stacking chairs with dollies, as well as a few rectangular folding tables for rental use.
Rental rates are listed below. A $500.00 damage deposit is also required at time of booking in the form of cash or separate cheque which will be returned after the booking if the hall is cleaned to MD standards. Please phone the Municipal Office to check on booking dates and to fill out the Rental Agreement. There are still a few open rental weekends available for 2020.
