The Historic Mission San Juan Capistrano is an idyllic setting of lush gardens, koi filled fountains, museum rooms, original adobe buildings and the famous Great Stone Church. Conveniently located half way between Los Angeles and San Diego, close to the freeway, minutes from the airport and walking distance from the train depot.

Host Your Event at Historic Mission San Juan Capistrano

Hosting daytime seminars, evening events, and dazzling social affairs, the Mission has become an exciting venue for corporations worldwide. Capable of accommodating intimate groups of 50, galas for 800, or receptions and concerts accommodating up to 1000, offering 10 + acres that convey the ambiance of old world hospitality.

Make your event sparkle and shine, by hosting it at the "Jewel of the Missions." Create a "wow" factor as guests stroll beneath lighted archways and grand palms and jacaranda trees. Imagine enjoying your own private show: flamenco, mariachi or any fiesta you desire. It is a gift to each one of your guests to have the opportunity to experience this peaceful and idyllic setting, all within easy access to the 5 freeway and train station.
