Transit Shed - Catering & Alcohol

Catering
We have an open-door catering policy, which allows you to bring in a caterer of your choice. We do provide a list of experienced caterers.

The port does not provide a commercial kitchen.

Catering supplies, such as linens, plates, glasses and serving ware, are typically provided by your caterer. Please be sure to discuss what they provide and the costs prior to contracting with a caterer.

Mobile food trucks can be hired and outdoor grilling is permitted within the designated area, which is the parking lot adjacent to the Transit Shed. Tarps must be draped over and renter is responsible for proper clean-up. If the use of a pop-up tent is needed, it must be sandbagged to withstand heavy winds — no stakes allowed.

Please do not place grills up against glass windows.  Leftover grease is not to be poured in our landscaping beds or down our drains.

Alcohol
A banquet permit thru Washington State is required and Host Liquor option is required on your event insurance.

All alcohol (beer and kegs of beer, white / red wine, champagne and hard alcohol) is allowed.

Expectations of Renters
Note: If you did not hire a caterer, then you will be responsible for the caterer’s duties.
