Santa Barbara Venues

Cabrillo Pavilion Arts Center

The essence of Santa Barbara will be encapsulated in this downtown, beach-side wedding venue. It's easy to see why the Cabrillo Pavilion Arts Center has become one of the most popular locations for weddings in Santa Barbara. A wall of huge glass windows surrounds the reception hall and overlooks the sea. The beach directly in front of the building is available to rent as a location for wedding ceremonies, and it offers an unbeatable toes-in-the-sand ceremony site that the Pure Joy Staff is happy to set up for you.

The Arts Pavilion is unique in that it is one of the only two buildings available to rent on the beach in all of Santa Barbara! It is also an astoundingly affordable wedding venue given that it is located in the heart of Santa Barbara's beach-side promenade. Another benefit is its proximity to various popular hotels and resorts, allowing the wedding party and/or guests to easily walk over to their hotel rooms after the party ends.

This is a very popular location for brides who are looking for a reasonably-priced waterfront venue. The staff are very friendly and the building can accomodate a large group. Some rentals (tables/chairs) are included which is very budget-friendly.

Very beautiful location and overall building! Better than your ordinary everyday hotel wedding or country club setting!
