Health Policy Information

CLICK HERE for the most recent Health Policy information for Starland Ballroom.

Where is Starland Ballroom located?

Starland Ballroom is located at 570 Jernee Mill Road in Sayreville, NJ. Check out our Directions page for directions to Starland Ballroom from multiple destinations and transportation methods.

What time does my show start or end?

We generally don't know in advance when a show will begin or end. Door times are posted for each show; the starting time for each show is generally (but not always) 30 to 60 minutes afterwards. The ending time varies by show; you should check with security or the box office on the way in for information.

Is the Starland Ballroom an all-ages venue?

For most shows, Starland Ballroom is an all-ages to enter, 21 to drink venue. On occasion an event may have a specific age restriction.  Please refer to the show listing on our Calendar page for all the shows details.

How do you separate underage concertgoers from those of legal drinking age?

Depending on the demographic of the event, this is what we do: Unlike venues which allow drinking patrons to mix with underage patrons, Starland's drinking area is confined to one or more sections of the building. People of legal drinking age are wrist-banded upon entry and allowed to enter the show's drinking sections. Persons under the age of 21 are not allowed into these areas, nor are alcoholic beverages permitted to leave them. Uniformed and undercover security personnel patrol these sections and man the entrances and exits of these areas during these events. Parents can feel confident that every effort is made to keep underage persons from breaking the law.

Is there parking onsite?

Yes. Due to restrictions on space, Starland Ballroom employs an outside company to direct traffic in its lot. Because of this, we must charge a nominal fee to help pay for lot / safety attendants. Parking costs $10 per event. To expedite the parking process, please have your money ready upon arrival.

Starland Ballroom also offers StarParking, which allows ticketholders upfront parking and line privilages.  StarParking can be purchased through AXS.com or the Starland box office. 

For more information on Star Parking please click here.

I want to interview a band, take photos of a band, or review a show. How do I go about this?

All interview and review requests must be made through the band's record label or publicity person. Please contact the specific band's label for information. Likewise, Starland Ballroom does not issue photo passes; you must contact the band's publicity personnel to gain such credentials.

I lost my cell phone / credit card / wallet / jacket / etc. at Starland? What do I do?

Starland maintains a "Lost And Found" box at its offices. Call 732-238-5500 to discuss the matter.

After 6 months, unclaimed cell phones are donated to military and/or domestic abuse charities.
