Reservations can be made up to one-year prior to the event date. Due to the high volume of requests for reservations, a lottery is held to determine which party will be able to make the reservation. The lottery will be held daily at the Community Services Department (5th floor of the Huntington Beach Civic Center) at 8:15 am for the corresponding date one year in advance. One representative from each party will be given a raffle ticket and the winning raffle number wins the lottery. The person winning the lottery will be the one who completes the necessary paperwork. Dates may not be held by phone and you cannot be placed on a waiting list.
The following dates are available on a first come first served basis:
