Venue Spotlight: Calamigos Ranch



Nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains, Malibu Conference Center Calamigos Ranch offers over 130 acres of stunning grounds for weddings, corporate functions, and special events. Established in 1947, Calamigos Ranch has emerged as one of Malibu’s choice event locations and features exquisite views with natural elements such as waterfalls and meadows. The website describes the venue as, “the most visually stunning special event location in the Malibu Wine Country.”

Bride and Groom

Those looking for a wedding venue will find Calamigos Ranch a versatile location. It can easily accommodate receptions ranging from 75 to 500 guests and its natural setting can range from whimsical to elegant. This Malibu Conference Center has four distinct locations to help create your wedding vision: The Garden Patio, The Ranch House, and The Oaks.


Each setting is designed for a variety of party sizes and they all offer a distinct feel. The Ranch House for instance, is perfect for an intimate evening affair with twinkling lights lining a private outdoor patio. The Oaks offers an enchanting setting with a pond, bridge, and natural stone waterfalls. Willow trees, an organic stone fireplace, and flagstone pathways are all characteristics of each venue option at Calamigos Ranch. The entire site is equipped with a full service staff including wait staff, private valet, a personal chef, and onsite coordinator.

Corporate Events

This location is also a creative site for meetings, corporate events, team building workshops and retreats. While Calamigos Ranch offers the services of a traditional conference center, it also has unique characteristics such as a wood burning fireplace, outdoor facilities and hiking trails. The venue can accommodate groups of 100 to 5,000 for company picnics and offers packages to suit all budgets. The website describes company picnics as their specialty, stating, “There’s nothing better for building morale, celebrating company accomplishments along with promoting employee interaction and teamwork”. In addition, the facility offers a personal concierge, all day refreshment services, wireless internet, and a screen/projector for business events.
