The Venue

Looking for a unique event space in downtown Bakersfield?

The Collective is a newly renovated event space located in the heart of downtown Bakersfield. The indoor space can accommodate up to 200 people and is perfect for any event. We offer set-up and clean-up services, along with tables and chairs for all events. The high ceilings and neutral décor can easily pair with any theme. It truly is a blank canvas that can instantly transform into a beautiful event.

The outdoor patio space is a perfect area to compliment the indoor space for any event. The outdoor patio has beautiful olive trees, bistro lighting, and landscaping that creates an Italian garden feel. This space can accommodate up to 250 people for any of your event needs.

The Collective has one goal in mind, which is to provide a beautiful canvas for any client to use to transform their vision into an amazing event.

We love planning events!

We host everything from weddings to anniversary parties, corporate events to birthday parties, and everything in between. We offer our clients the ability to bring in their own vendors for all their event needs, or we can plan every last detail so our clients do not have to lift a finger. At The Collective, our event staff works side-by-side with our clients to ensure every event is executed with precision and detail. We want every client to feel welcome in our space as we help bring their vision to life. Every event is an opportunity for us to transform the space into a work of art.
