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 accepting reservations for events starting May 1, 2021 through the end of 2021.  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 occurring in Orange Tier is limited to 50 people. The Yellow Tier 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.
