About The Grand Ballroom at the Pasadena Convention Center

You should have the wedding of your dreams and the Pasadena Convention Center makes it possible. The Pasadena Convention Center is a boutique venue that offers a wide variety of event spaces for events of all sizes from the intimate micro-celebrations to large extravaganzas.

The Grand Ballroom offering 25,000 square feet, the grand ballroom can be divided into 10 smaller spaces. It has a neutral, modern interior that acts as the perfect blank canvas to give you the flexibility to create your own theme. The open foyer and lofted ceilings of the ballroom also feature artistic freeform chandeliers, perfect for setting the mood and is great location for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.

The original Conference Center Building received $1.9 million that renovated its interior and gave it a whole new façade. Weddings can be held on the building’s lower level, which houses another chic, contemporary space for events. Done in soft gray and white, it complements almost any color scheme. Hang swags of fabric from the ceiling for an element of softness and movement, or add a disco ball for sparkle. Brides enjoy tossing their bouquet over the sleek metal railing on the upper level.

The Civic Auditorium, crafted in the Italian Renaissance style, has always charmed visitors with its soaring archways and dramatic artistry. The Gold Room - Chic meets class in this luxurious space. Located on the second floor inside the Civic Auditorium, the Gold Room offers 3,139 square feet and is ideal for intimate micro-gatherings. The elegant Gold Room features a rosette ceiling and elaborate molding, rosette ceilings, chandeliers, intricate architecture and resplendent windows that creates an air of European elegance.

Historic Ballroom/Exhibition Hall C - This historic ballroom was originally opened in 1932. It has 16,786 square feet of space preserved with its original architectural charm, antique chandeliers, and stunning arched windows. With the soft cream color palette, you have the creative freedom and flexibility to create a night to remember.

The Pasadena Convention Center’s in-house culinary professionals specialize in California cuisine using locally grown ingredients, and will customize your menu. The center has also implemented a host of “go green” initiatives, which should please environmentally conscious brides. And guests attending your event will have plenty to keep them happy, too: The facility is close to the Burbank and Los Angeles airports and just blocks from Old Pasadena, a historic area filled with shops, boutiques, restaurants and clubs. Museums, golf, and live theater are nearby as well.

    The Pasadena Convention Center is a great venue to consider for your wedding or special event. With so many rooms and different spaces to choose from, there is a space available for you for both small and large receptions.

    The decor and building is sleek, minimal, clean, and modern, which serves as a good clean palette for you to bring in a lot of different florals, lighting, and rentals, so you can go either way with design whether its saturated with color, or just kept clean and simple.

    The staff is also great, their responsiveness is quick and professional and the staff is very on top of things. From booking, to planning your wedding, to the execution on the day-of your event, they are responsive and quick to action.

    As a planner, and also a guest who has attended events at this venue, it is a great value and the food is also really great too! I highly recommend it for any wedding reception, corporate party, or special event!

    the chef is very inconsistent.. sometimes she makes really great food from scratch and other times she just uses left overs or frozen food... for the money, it was a good deal, but i only got the great deal because i used to work there.
