Pavilion In The Park
The Atrium of Pavilion in the Park is an ideal location for so many kinds of social events! Wedding receptions, wedding ceremony with reception, large rehearsal dinners, corporate events, holiday parties, fundraisers…you name it. The Atrium is available after 6:00 p.m. on Saturday evenings. Weeknight events are booked on a case-by-case basis depending on the nature of the event.
The rental / use fee for the Atrium is $1,800. Call Trio’s for available dates and booking information.
Each event that Trio’s caters is considered on an individual basis. For most occasions our services and costs encompass food, rentals (plates, serving dishes & chafing dishes for buffets, tables, linens, chairs, glassware, utensils, etc.), and staff. For example, our average cost per wedding with an hors d’oeuvres menu in Pavilion in the Park averages about $45 – $50 per person. However, depending on the location and menu items served, it is possible for some weddings to fall under $25 per person and others to exceed $50 per person. Other social and business events fall in a similar range.
Dinner event costs vary according to menu and service style. Simple buffet suppers can range from $15 – $25 per person with delivery to $50 and up when more rental equipment and staff are required. Four course dinners range from $45 – $80 per person depending on menu, location, and style of service (buffet or plated).
A phone call to check availability is the first step towards booking Trio’s for catering. It is our practice to book only one or two staffed events on a given day; however, we occasionally book more during the busy holiday season and during the year if timing and staffing permit.
The second step is a meeting with our catering coordinator to discuss the details of the event. At that time, location and menu are discussed, and information is gathered to prepare a detailed proposal.
