Events That Deserve a Standing Ovation


Continuing its long legacy as one of Orange County’s oldest, largest and most versatile venues for live entertainment and special events, The Yost has been an iconic landmark of Santa Ana’s vibrant downtown since 1912. With a capacity for up to 1000 standing guests and a history of hosting world-class musicians, international DJs, fashion shows and film premieres, there’s no other venue of its kind.


Newly renovated by Yost, Southern California’s most sought-after catering and events company, its historic roots and 20’s decor have been meticulously restored and modernized, with traditional touches to elevate the guest experience. Unique with a character all its own, The Yost provides a stunning stage for a wide range of events, from concerts and live performances to upscale weddings, social gatherings and corporate functions.
