Breathtaking scenery and a comfortable Mediterranean climate make Santa Barbara an ideal destination to celebrate any occasion. The City’s Parks and Recreation Department is a natural choice for your special event with three spectacular indoor beachfront facilities and 18 picturesque outdoor beach and park locations that provide a beautiful backdrop for your wedding, reception, birthday or anniversary party, family reunion, quinceañera, or graduation. Dance under the stars, choose a location with thousands of roses, say your vows with a glistening ocean as the backdrop, or try the recently renovated, historic downtown Carrillo Recreation Center, which boasts one of the best dance floors in the country. All venues are available for rent throughout the year at affordable rates and can accommodate from 10 to 550 guests.
