The Magnolia Stands Out as a Unique Venue for Private Events in San Diego

The Magnolia, San Diego’s latest entertainment venue, is not only one of the best spots in Southern California to see world-class artists perform, such as Morrissey, Kevin Hart, and Eddie Vedder, but it’s also a perfect choice for private events.

Nestled in San Diego’s El Cajon neighborhood, The Magnolia, formerly known as the East County Performing Arts Center, is an expansive and sunlit venue that shines after a recently completed multi-million dollar renovation.

Upgrades include a reconfigured seating layout showcasing great sightlines for 1200 guests, a completely refurbished lobby bar serving craft beer and cocktails, a brand new VIP Lounge, plush front-row seating, updated guest amenities, and elevator access to the upper-level seating for easy accessibility.

Versatile and Inviting: The Magnolia’s Unique Appeal for Diverse Events in San Diego

The Magnolia’s unique combination of size, capabilities, and indoor/outdoor setting allows for a multitude of opportunities, including graduations, speaker-style events, ballets and dance recitals, school theater productions, dance competitions, and nonprofit events—making private events a staple for this venue.

The Magnolia

Upon entering the recently remodeled venue, you are greeted by The Magnolia’s outdoor plaza—the perfect place for your pre-event party. Inside, The Magnolia boasts 1,200 plush theater seats strategically arranged across unique house tiers, ensuring an unobstructed view of the stage from every seat.

Following the venue’s renovation, upgrades to lighting and sound engineering have elevated every experience to a world-class entertainment level capable of supporting the most demanding production requirements.

See you there!

Located just fifteen minutes from San Diego’s bustling city center, The Magnolia stands out as the go-to destination for special events, corporate events, and entertainment-focused gatherings.

Magnolia’s team is dedicated to the craft, offering a richly unique entertainment experience by providing full-service event production and services.
