About the Center
The Willie Galimore Community Center is an event/banquet facility available for lease that contains a 50 by 50 foot open assembly room that can support an occupancy of up to 230 guests.
Rent the Facility
This facility is for use of a private party contracted with the City of St. Augustine and is only for the use of that party and their invited guests. Rental of the facility includes use of the assembly room with adjacent kitchen area with stove, refrigerator and microwave. The following items will need to be provided by the renter:
- Cleaning products
Outside there is a charcoal grill, picnic tables and a small playground. Tables and folding chairs are available for use at the facility at no extra cost. Set up and take down of the tables and chairs are the responsibility of the applicant.
The fee for usage of the room is $35 per hour. When making reservations please keep in mind the time needed to set up or decorate prior to the event as that may increase the hours you need to reserve the room. After the event you are allowed one half hour for time to remove decorations and clean up at no charge. There are no refunds for hours reserved but not used.To check availability, please call 904-825-1004.
A $100 security deposit is required for each reservation. No reservation will be scheduled until an application has been submitted with the security deposit. Failure to pay rental fees at least two weeks prior to the event will result in the reservation being cancelled and the facility may then be available for another party to reserve. Reservations made for events that will take place within two weeks will require the deposit and rental fees upon application.
Cancellation of a reservation more than 30 days before an event scheduled will receive a full refund. Cancellations made 30 days or less will receive refund of rental fees but not the $100 security deposit.
There are no regular office hours at the Galimore Center.
