Use of the State House and Grounds
The Division of General Services schedules persons, organizations or groups to use the State House and State House grounds for various purposes and events when the use will not interfere with or disrupt governmental functions. Requests to schedule an organized activity at the State House or on State House grounds should be submitted by email to the State House Events Coordinator at email@example.com.
A “State House Event Information Form” must be completed and the “Conditions for Use of South Carolina State House and Grounds” read and signed. Upon receipt of your request, the Division of General Services will review and send a reservation confirmation if the requested space is available. If you have any questions, please contact the Division of General Services at 803-737-3880.
