HOLDS AND DEPOSITS
Private event booking dates can be reserved as a HOLD tentatively during non-peak days. Tentative holds are ordered as placed (i.e. first hold, second hold, etc). However, Bayou Barn cannot guarantee any hold without a deposit. With a first hold, a conflicting commitment for the facility will not be made in favor of a second hold without offering the first hold an opportunity to either execute a contract agreement or release its reservation. The initial holder of the date will be notified and given 24 hours to sign a contract and pay a deposit. If this “challenge” is not met, the date will be relinquished to the “challenging” party and the “challenging” party will be required to sign a contract and pay the required deposit immediately.
