Frequently Asked Questions

How many guests can your venue accommodate?

The Sunshine Event Center is able to accommodate up to 200 guests in the large event space.


Currently, The Sunshine Event Center is not accepting reservations for 2020 events.  But for events in 2021, our venue capacity is dictated by state mandated regulations.  As Sacramento county moves through the various tiers of the reopening framework we will be able to offer more with our services. 

Guideline for number of guests at a private indoor event in Tier 2 is limited to 50 people. Tier 3 and 4 allows events up to 100 guest for a celebration or gathering.

Are we able to decorate the space, are linens included?

Absolutely you are able to decorate the event space.  The tables, reception area, columns, stage area, front entrance are all areas that can be decorated.  Decorations that include live flame, such as candles and sparklers are not permitted due to fire code safety. Also, decorations such as glitter, confetti, rose petals, or live christmas trees or garland are beautiful but are a safety hazard and are not allowed in the space. To affix decorations to the wall decorating tape or command hooks are permitted.  Tacks, staples, tape or putty that will damage the wall are not allowed.
Linens and extra tables can be brought into the space, by the client, if needed, but are not provided by The Sunshine Event Center

Is alcohol allowed during our event?

You may serve alcohol at your event. If you choose to serve beer and wine only; a responsible sober adult over the age of 21 must tend your bar.  It must always be attended.

When can I come in to set-up for my event? Also, can I drop my items off early?

For Big Day Packages, your set-up time and clean up time is included in the rental period,  ie. 12:00pm – 12:00am, your set-up time will start at 12:00pm and you must be prepared to leave the space at 12:00am.

For any other events in the large event space, you are allotted 1 hour prior to the start of your event, ie  4:00pm – 12:00am, set-up is allowed as early as 3:00pm

It is important to know, in order for vendors, family or friends to begin setting up the space, the client or designated representative of the client must be in the facility at all times. 

Equipment needing to be dropped off must be done within this window of time.  The Sunshine Event Center staff can not accept equipment on your behalf and is unable to store it in the facility before or after the event.

What is required of the client at the end of the event?

At the end of your event, you will be given an additional 30 minutes to clean up the venue; excluding Big Day Package Rental.  This includes taking out all the the equipment, decorations, linens… that were brought into the event space.  Picking up all trash and placing it in the appropriate receptacles.  Floor swept and free of debris.  Walls clear of tape from decorations will need to be removed and balloons taken down.
Once the clean-up is complete and the vendors have left, the closing event staff will do a final walk through the space with you to make sure nothing was left behind.  The staff will then scrub the floors, clean the restrooms, steam clean the carpets, clean all of the tables and chairs, and wash the mirrors and windows.
