Grand Park can serve as the perfect place to host your special event. It also provides you with a great backdrop for your next event, photo or film shoot.
Learn about filming in the park and tell us a little bit about your planned photo shoot to help us help you.
All needs are met at the moment, BUT if you’d like to let us know who you are and what you sell, this is the best way. We will contact you only if the opportunity arises and there is a need for what you’re selling.
We ask that all potential rental clients fill out the Event Proposal form found on the contact page. From there, our team will be able to evaluate your form and determine if your event can occur in the park. Once your form is evaluated, the rentals team will send you an email letting you know that status of your proposal.
The park is open to everyone. Grand Park plans free programming for the public year-round in partnership with community organizations, artists, and educators. Individuals, companies and organizations are welcome to rent space for public or private events at the park. If you’d like to rent a space to produce your own events, please visit the rental information page at grandparkla.org/rentals.
Grand Park is resuming the Lunch a la Park Food Trucks program, to serve local employees and park guests. For the schedule, please check our event calendar. Grand Park, along with our vendor partners, are practicing the following safety protocols:
All food truck patrons and guests, please practice safety protocols as well:
Grand Park follows all ADA standards for accessibility. Visitors can call 213-972-8080 for more information.
Security for the park is provided 24-hours-a-day. In addition, security cameras, monitored daily, are located throughout the park to ensure the safety of all park patrons.
Event proposals are evaluated holistically and many items are taken into consideration, including size and scope of the event, staff capacity, and calendar as it pertains to blackout dates and other scheduled events. Blackout dates are put into place either because of already scheduled events or for the park to be a resource to the residents of L.A. County as a public space. Please see our availability calendar in the link on our page to inform your scheduling.
Events that are not approved will receive an evaluation email explaining why the event was not approved, including whether there is an adjustment that can be made to allow your event to be held in the park. Instructions on any proposed adjustments will be included in the evaluation email. Not all events that are proposed are approved, but the Grand Park team does their best to accommodate everyone.
Each area of the park has a designated rental fee set by the County of Los Angeles that is charged based upon the length of time necessary from set up until tear down. Cost estimates include any additional necessary Grand Park personnel such as staff, security, maintenance, etc. This estimate will be sent after the event has been approved to occur in Grand Park.
Budgeting for events in Grand Park is dependent on the type of event and content of the event. Grand Park is an outdoor space; traditional elements that may be included in an indoor rental setting may not be available in Grand Park. Some elements to consider are sound equipment, lighting, portable restrooms, fencing, and permits (For example, permits for stage builds, street closures and food vending).
