The Historic Oakdale Ranch is home to the second oldest working ranch in Yolo County to be owned and operated continuously by the same family. The 400 acre ranch is located on the outskirts of Esparto, California, at the gateway to the beautiful Capay Valley. The Stephens Family has owned and operated Oakdale Ranch since 1852, and is now home to the 4th, 5th and 6th generation of Stephens'.
The event area is nestled between walnut orchards and hedges of native grass that insulate the 2 acre pond and event areas from Highway 16. Vistas of the rolling Capay Hills are visible in the distance.
The venue area includes a half acre of lawns adjacent to the 2 acres of pond, beautiful Walnut tree orchards, and a large rustic barn. This is a perfect location for an intimate wedding, family reunion, or company picnic.
The event area is perfect for parties of up to 275 people and has convenient parking.
While the area is available from March to October, spring and fall events are especially popular due to the moderate Yolo County climate.

10/10 Wedding Venue!
My husband and I got married at the Historic Oakdale Ranch October 27, 2018 and we couldn't have been happier with our experience here. To begin with, the venue coordinator, Chelsea, is extremely professional and amiable. She gave us a tour of the three areas on the property, the rustic barn, the orchards, and the pond, and was happy to answer all our questions. We were able to get the 3 day package which was wonderful because we had the full day before the wedding to set up and the day after to finish clean up. The beautiful part of this venue is that it's not near any other farms and you can get lovely shots of your day without someone's house or car being in the background. You are able to customize your package so that you only pay for the props and items that you want for your big day. Another great part of this venue is they allow outsider caterers and allow you to bring your own alcohol at no additional charge. This was a huge deal-maker for us and saved us an incredible amount of money. Chelsea met with us several times before the big day and the wedding ran so smooth. It was the happiest day of my life and I am so glad my husband and I chose to get married here. I highly recommend this venue. It's affordable, romantic, and creates a lovely ranch atmosphere.Sent on 11/23/2018
