The grounds and buildings of Mission San Luis are available for a limited number of private parties, receptions, and meetings. We cannot accommodate more than two hundred guests due to the limited availability of parking and restrooms. Smoking is not permitted at Mission San Luis. Rentals are booked on a first-come, first-served basis and are subject to staff availability and oversight.

All events must be compatible with the Mission’s status as a National Historic Landmark and a community-wide cultural resource. Proposed events must not permanently alter the site or entail the use of decorations or equipment incompatible with the 17th century setting. The use of the site is limited to daylight hours. Mission San Luis is an important archaeological site. No digging or other kind of ground disturbance is permitted.
