Plan an Event/Wedding

We warmly welcome you to Pacific Grove, also known as Butterfly Town USA, and we invite you to enjoy your next special event, whatever it may be, in our charming Victorian town by the sea.

One of our community parks would be the perfect place for an outdoor event.

Lovers Point Park

Lovers Point Park is located at the foot of 17th street and used for picnicking, fishing, sunning, swimming, water sports, and surfing. Amenities include a large lawn area – great for wedding ceremonies, a sand volleyball court, a children’s swimming pool, sandy beaches, rocky outcrops, a concrete pier structure, restaurant and snack bar.

Berwick Park

Berwick Park on Ocean View Avenue between 9th Street and Carmel Avenue is another great one-acre park offering spectacular views of the bay. Part of the park has a large, well-maintained lawn area with gentle topography as well as a natural landscape with rocky outcrops and native vegetation.

Jewell Park

Jewell Park bounded by Park Place, Central, Grand and Forest Avenues. A well-maintained lawn area, specimen trees, gentle topography, a small meeting building with a kitchen, and a gazebo suitable for weddings or outdoor performances establish the park’s urban character.

Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History

Enjoy this non-traditional venue for your event with family, friends or associates. With a variety of options, both outdoor and indoor, the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History will make your occasions memorable and unique. Weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners, cocktail parties, corporate events and meetings, birthday parties, bridal/ baby showers, and more. Contact our event specialist to schedule a site visit and we can begin planning your perfect event. ADA accessible. Click here for more information.

Asilomar Conference Grounds

Asilomar offers a variety of ceremony locations to fit your wedding style. Picture your ceremony outdoors in Asilomar's beautiful Grand Cypress Meadow, or on the white sand of Asilomar Beach overlooking the Pacific Ocean. If your dream wedding is a bit more traditional, Asilomar's historic Grace Dodge Chapel with its vaulted ceiling and forest backdrop may be just what you’re looking for. Asilomar will help you choose the perfect reception venue. Their reception venues offer a unique dining experience that can be customized for every taste and budget.
