Orange County Venue Spotlight: Mission San Juan Capistrano

The Event Team’s first venue spotlight of the year features one of our favorite Orange County event spaces, Mission San Juan Capistrano. Our Southern California destination management company has operated several corporate events at this location, and the result is always stunning!

History of Mission San Juan Capistrano

Mission San Juan Capistrano, historic landmark and museum, is the Birthplace of Orange County. It was founded more than two hundred years ago as the 7th of 21 missions statewide and features a chapel still standing where Saint Serra once celebrated Mass. Today, it is a monument to California’s multi-cultural history, embracing its Native American, Spanish, Mexican and European heritage. Originally built as a self-sufficient community by Spanish Padres and Native Americans, the Mission was a center for agriculture, industry, education and religion. Famous for the Annual Return of the Swallows, Mission San Juan Capistrano is the “Jewel of the California Missions” and welcomes over 300,000 visitors each year.

Venue Highlights

Choose from the adobe Soldiers Barracks Gallery and patio for smaller groups of 50, or the Front and Central Courtyards for events that can accommodate up to 1000 guests reception-style. In addition to beautiful indoor and outdoor event space for corporate functions, Mission San Juan Capistrano offers permanent exhibits and docent-led tours featuring historical and religious artifacts, precious and rare paintings, and more.

The Event Team is happy to provide many entertainment options to match the style of your function. Choose from swanky jazz trios or mariachi bands to provide background music, or opt for a full scale production featuring flamenco or folklorico dancers. We can also provide cigar rolling or paper flower stations to ensure guests have a special keepsake from the evening’s festivities.
