Carousel House

Santa Barbara's Newest Waterfront Venue, Perfect for a Party, Elopement, Wedding, or Reception

The Carousel House is the City's newest rental facility along the beachfront. Located on the western end of Chase Palm Park and formerly the home of a carousel for 20 years, it has now been made over into an open space with a greenhouse-like industrial feel, perfect for all types of events.

The Plaza lawn with a planted fountain is included with the rental of the Carousel House. The Carousel House has a capacity of 150-180 seated and 240 cocktail style.
