MVCMA Facility Rental
The Martha’s Vineyard Camp Meeting Association (MVCMA) facility is available for rental during the summer season of
July 1 to September 2.
The MVCMA events take priority for the use of the facilities, however when the MVCMA facilities are not in use by the MVCMA, the facilities may be available for rental.
Sundays are not available as a rental day due to Sunday Services. Mondays are usually “dark” to allow for facility maintenance. Wednesday evenings are not available as Community Sing is held during this time.

FACILITY RENTAL AGREEMENT AND EVENT INSURANCE
All groups seeking to rent space from the MVCMA must have a written Facility Rental Agreement and obtain Commercial General Liability Insurance for the event. DocuSign is used for MVCMA Facility Rental Agreements. A deposit of 50% of the rental fee and proof of liability insurance is due at the time of signing the Facility Rental Agreement in order to secure the date. The deposit is to be received 14 business days after scheduling, or the date is no longer held.
AUDIO VIDEO SERVICES – Provided and direct billed by ProductionsMV
AV services are provided by the MVCMA’s authorized vendor, ProductionsMV. Clients work directly with the vendor for services. ProductionsMV will directly bill the client for the AV services used for the event.
COMMUNITY USE by Non-Profits for Free Events Open the Public
The MVCMA may waive the Tabernacle rental fee for a non-profit community service organization holding an event that is aligned to the mission of the MVCMA. These events are free to attend, open to the public, and serve a community purpose. A $300 service fee is charged to help defray the cost of holding the event. Additional charges apply for hours over the standard 5-hour Tabernacle rental, the use of the tent and/or Trinity Park, table rental, additional port-a-potties, trash removal and other services. If AV services are required, these are directly billed to the client. These fees are identified by the General Manager in reviewing the Rental Request form with the Event Organizer.
