Adding to the list of unique event venues in Irvine is the Segerstrom Shelby Event Center. Home to more than 80 rare, classic cars designed by legendary American auto designer, race car driver, and entrepreneur Carroll Shelby, along with vintage neon signs, gas pumps, and artifacts, this event center is open to the public for self-paced tours. Having officially opened to the public in January 2022, Ted and Rae Segerstrom share their private collection with the community.

With state-of-the-art, built-in audio/visual equipment, the 7,000 square-foot grand salon can accommodate up to 350 people for a reception-style event or 250 people seated. Offering convenient free parking and a prep kitchen for caterers, the venue is ideal for corporate or social events. Individual bride and groom suites make it the perfect venue for weddings. Brides will especially love the statement staircase for making a grand entrance.
