Event Policies


The Carson Center and its alcohol beverage concessionaires have adopted an alcohol policy that is designed to help prevent harm and to protect our guests, employees, volunteers and the community from alcohol-related incidents. Guests are expected to obey all federal, state and local laws governing the purchase, possession, and consumption of alcohol. It is illegal for anyone under the age of 21 to consume alcoholic beverages. In addition, the following items are to be noted:

The Carson Center's public concession stands will only serve alcoholic beverages at any event, in accordance with the law and as may be determined by these policies. Alcoholic beverages will not be served in containers larger than 16 ounces.
There shall be a maximum limit of two alcoholic beverages sold to each guest, per purchase.
The Carson Center for the Performing Arts reserves the right to eject anyone under the age of twenty-one (21) who is observed to be consuming alcohol on the premises, or who appears to be visibly intoxicated or who is consuming illegal substances on the premises.
