The Beach

If you are looking for an easy and cheap venue, head to the beach! San Diego has a beautiful coastline that is free entertainment. Set up a few tables, grab some balloons and party decorations, and you have yourself a laid-back graduation party! People will be able to stop by easily, enjoy the nice weather and snacks, and celebrate your graduation in a fun way. This is a location that will offer an amazing sunset view, as your party will come to close! Even get there early to reserve a fire pit, so the party doesn’t have to stop when the sun goes down.





A Local Restaurant

If you are willing to spend a little bit more money, check out one of your favorite restaurants! Most are willing to reserve a room or tables depending on the space to accommodate your party. You also may be able to order items ahead of time in order to minimize the cost and guarantee that everyone gets fed. This is an easy way to have a party where everyone sits down and can enjoy stories of your adventures in school. What better way to celebrate than reminiscing over good times with the people you love at your favorite restaurant?


Your Backyard

One of the most popular venues people have their graduation parties at is in their own backyard. This is one of the easiest ways to have a party as 

it guarantees you can control what happens! Hire a Mexican food company to cater the event, or have a food truck outside your house for a couple of hours. Put on some music and hope for the sun to be out! You can save money this way or spend it in different ways because you saved on the price of a venue. People love these kinds of graduation parties as what better way to celebrate than right at home.



A Local Community Center

Many community centers located in neighborhoods allow people to rent out a space for the day! People often host parties at these centers because they often offer a great deal for a great price. You can cater or cook the food yourself! This is a great venue to take advantage of because of the low cost and they are normally centrally located. Check out these venues quickly though because they book up quickly with all the parties occurring in the spring!

A Hotel

Another idea would be to rent out a space in a hotel. Head over to the hotel early with just family and reserve a room. You can relax by the pool and get ready easily before everyone arrives! Hire a DJ and cater some food to guarantee the party will be a fun event. People will enjoy the views and the night is sure to be talked about. Why not celebrate graduating in style?
