It’s been a while since I’ve been in the Café, especially here. Anyway my question is as folllows. If I rent a party venue and use the space to host my own family show do I need a permit or anything “legal” to do it. Other than obeying the fire code occupancy I can’t think of any thing else I need to worry about. If anyone has thrown there own show please feel free to drop advice or maybe point me in the right direction of someone who may help me. My goal is rent the venue , get vendors and sponsors in the event and not have to spend a single dime of my money. I know, sounds wild , but I’m up for the challenge.

Thank you for your time ,
J Rodriguez

First of all it depends on your state laws. It can be complicated looking for the laws dealing with your concern by contacting your state. I advise you to check your city hall.

The room you are renting might require a maximum amount of occupancy. If you are renting a room inside a building you most likely you will be given papers requiring the city's regulations.

If you feel comfortable purchasing insurance for that date, go ahead. Most people do not purchase insurance because there is a low chance of anything happening when it requires family parties.

You don’t usually need a permit to do magic shows. But if you are operating under a business name you will need a city business permit. And if you are selling products you may need a Sate Sales Tax permit. Like Mike said, each state has different rules/laws so the best thing for you to do is contact somebody at your local city hall.
