The permit holder's residency dictates whether the resident or non-resident fee applies. Residents are persons with a valid ID stating residency in Fraser, Michigan. Non-Residents are persons residing in any city other than Fraser. The permit holder is responsible for being at the event and holds all the responsibility for adhering to policies.

Reservation Dates

Reservations for permits are made the first business day of April for Fraser residents, the first business day of May for non-residents.

Reservations for residents on the first business day in April begin at 8:00 am, otherwise reservations are made during business hours. In the occurrence of a line prior to 8 am, we will receive reservations in the order that people enter the building.

No reservations or "holds" will be allowed before the first business day of April for Fraser residents, first business day of May for non-residents. Fraser Recreation reserves the right to schedule community events prior to the first day of pavilion reservations.

School Requests

Fraser schools can reserve a pavilion for week days (Monday through Friday) for $10 per pavilion, per day. Reservations for schools must be made in the school's name and have representative show valid school identification. Schools that are not located in Fraser or Fraser School District can pay either Resident rate or Non-Resident rate, depending on Residency of the Renter.
