The Topanga Community Center is a non-profit organization that works with the community to provide a meeting place for many organizations and functions. Since 1951 the House and grounds have continued to be a place for people to celebrate special events in their lives and the life of the community.

We are accustomed to hosting private parties, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, workshops, fundraisers, seminars, film shoots and parking rentals. For any unusual activity or equipment please contact our rental agent.

The Community House offers wireless internet for meetings and conferences for our members convenience. There are approximately 200 chairs and 20 rectangluar tables available for use. Any rental equipment brought in from an outside source must be pre-approved. All rental equipment and decorations must be removed by the end of the rental period.

The kitchen is included in the rental but oven use entails additional fees due to our cost to maintain it. No cooking or serving utensils are available.

When catering is part of the event and when cooking is onsite, the catering company must provide the rental agent a certificate of insurance naming the TCC as additionally insured. Deliveries of food or equipment must be scheduled with the rental agent and within your rental period. It is the responsibility of tenant to comply with all applicable laws and local ordinances. Our rental agent is familiar with local caterers and other vendors and can provide you information whenever requested.

The TCC for
small outside events

Ever since the completion of Topanga’s ONLY playground, the Community Center is happy to reserve picnic table space under our grandmother oak tree for birthday parties and friend and family gatherings, providing close access to the playground for young children and the availability of the ball field for games for all ages, much like many of our County’s public parks.

Because we are a private facility, we survive through memberships and rentals as well as depend upon grants and donations to improve our facilities. Our hope is to be able to continue to improve the picnic area by providing more tables, a small sound system, and other amenities that would be useful to our members.

We do not allow booking picnic area reservations beyond 45 days to avoid conflicts with large rentals generating a great deal of revenue for the TCC.

Picnic rentals are for up to 40 people and are available for 3-hour periods in the morndings and afternoons on Saturdays and Sundays.

The Topanga Community Center is a venue like no other. Nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains halfway between the beach and the San Fernando Valley, it is the ideal secluded Topanga venue with mountain views.

Our exposed red brick building has a large stone fireplace, a stage, a green room and a beautiful kitchen. With its wooden beamed ceiling, wagon wheel chandelier, concrete floor and large windows overlooking the mountains, the TCC has been a favorite venue for couples interested in getting married.

We also have several lovely outdoor areas available for ceremonies that can be followed by an indoor reception.

We can accommodate all types of events, including Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, birthdays, anniversaries, seminars, workshops, single day retreats, holiday parties, family reunions and all types of fundraisers.

Renting the Topanga Community Center involves making an initial inquiry that incurs a $25 administration fee (applicable towards the total rental cost). Communicating with the rental agent Dayna Miller about your specific needs is an absolute must, as additional fees might arise. Once the renter’s event is approved the total cost of the rental must be paid at the latest 3 days before the rental date. A $250 refundable security deposit is included in the rental cost.

If you wish to visit the Community House, please contact the rental agent to schedule an appointment. Do not visit without an appointment as the premises may be in use.
