BOOKING REQUEST FORM

In order to best respond to your rental needs, we need the details of your event – please fill out a booking request form.

You can find the form here.

PRODUCTION SCHEDULES

Moving forward, our Production team will develop the Production Schedule for your event in collaboration with you. We know our staff requirements and venues best, and this process helps provide healthier expectations and work environments for everyone while they are in our spaces.  We will always work to make it as cost-effective for you as possible!

Please note: showtimes MUST be approved by Intrepid before your tickets go on-sale.

DEPOSITS

As Production Schedules are built together, labour won’t be included as part of your deposit fee. An estimate for production labour can be provided after the Production Schedule has been developed.

RATES & FEES

We have updated our rental rates, labour costs, and other expenses, incorporating an annual increase. The annual increase for the following year will be published each fall.

You can find the current 2024 rates here.

INSURANCE NOW REQUIRED FOR INTREPID STUDIO

All rentals at the Intrepid Studio need to have General Liability Insurance at a minimum of $2,000,000 coverage, as required by Intrepid’s general insurance policy.

LIQUOR LIABILITY INSURANCE

If you intend to sell alcohol during your event, you are required to have Liquor Liability insurance along with your SEP. Your provider can include it in your General Liability coverage; failure to do so or to provide proof of coverage in advance will result in the cancellation of your event.

CALENDAR YEAR BOOKING SCHEDULE

Bookings for the next calendar year open in September. For example, our calendar will open for general 2025 multiple-consecutive day bookings on September 15, 2024 and will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis.
