Other Food and Beverage Options

While the Glendale Civic Center has an outstanding list of Preferred Caterers, we will on rare occasion allow clients requiring ethnic or speciality foods and non-alcoholic beverages to be provided by licensed restaurants, or other commercial licensed food preparation businesses under certain conditions and certain terms are met. 

The caterer will need to provide a copy of their Arizona Health Department Permit to Operate, and liability insurance showing Glendale Civic Center as additionally insured.

You will also need to provide the following: full service staff to serve and clear tables, all table linens for guest tables and all food and beverage stations, plates, flatware, cups, napkins, all serving utensils and serving containers, hot boxes and trash bags.  In order to use the kitchen, it must be reserved and contracted. There is a $500.00 fee for the use of the kitchen. The caterer will need to sign a Facility Use Agreement with the Glendale Civic Center before using the kitchen. 

The kitchen is equiped with a walk in refrigerator, freezer, prep tables, 6 burner gas top stove with grill and oven, ice machine and dish rinse station.

Pour Masters, listed on our Preferred Vendors List can provide service staff if needed. You may contact them directly for pricing.


For small meetings 50 and under people, store or restuarant bought food and beverage is permitted. No homemade food and beverage is allowed.  You must provide table linens for all tables as well.  Following the event you are required to clean up and dispose or remove all paper goods and left over food and beverage following the event.
