About Us

The Palo Alto Event Center is located in the center of Silicon Valley, just one mile south of Stanford University and minutes from the area’s foremost technology and venture capital companies. Opened in 2011 as part of the Palo Alto Elks Lodge, it’s become a popular venue for corporate, social as well as other community functions.

The atmosphere is a welcoming one. As you enter through the spacious atrium, you immediately notice the high ceiling, the splendid front wall of windows, and a striking contemporary staircase that leads to the second-level facilities.

You’ll find over 40,000 square feet of handsomely appointed and surprisingly affordable event space here, along with an appetizing, fully customizable catering menu and an experienced event staff dedicated to making your event the best it can be.
