Event Facilities

Are you looking for a place to hold an event?

If you’re planning an event that is a private affair by invitation only and not open to the public, you may want to consider one of the venues available from Concord Historical Society.

The Society’s facilities are located on the Concord History Campus, a 1-3/4-acre site located in the block bounded by Clayton Road, Amador Avenue and Marina Court.  The Campus consists of the Galindo Home Museum, Galindo Gardens and Gazebo, the Concord Museum and Event Center (CMEC) and parking.  Parts of the facility may be rented on an hourly basis.  All activities, including delivery, set-up, take-down and clean up MUST occur within the rented hours or an additional fee will be charged.  The Galindo Home Museum is not available to rent.

A rental application is available online at or by calling the Concord Historical Society (Society) Rentals Coordinator (925) 785-5032.
