Venue Spotlight: The BackYard

We’re continuing our Venue Spotlight series with a look at the largest space Best Catering and Events has to offer: The BackYard. If you want to throw an epic event for up to 8,000 guests, The BackYard is your best option anywhere in the Inland Empire.

The BackYard: The Inland Empire’s Best Kept Secret

If you’re looking for the ultimate event or festival space, come check out what’s been called the Inland Empire’s best kept secret! The BackYard truly has it all. It has acres of meticulously landscaped grounds along a lakefront that’s reserved exclusively for guests of The BackYard.

You’ll have all the lawn space you need for whatever setup you want. Whether you’re inviting vendors to set up booths, creating a kids zone with inflatables and games, or both and more, you’ll have the needed lawn space at The BackYard.

The Fort: Rustic Lakefront Bar and More

With your rental of The BackYard, you also get access to The Fort, a rustic private lakefront bar stocked with all the beverages you’ll want for your event. The Fort also includes a 20’ x 20’ elevated stage, perfect for band or other entertainment or for your event’s keynote session. The rustic deck overlooks the lake and is a highlight all its own.

Food Options Abound

For events this large, you’ll want some killer food choices. Our catering staff at The FieldHouse Restaurant and Bar can craft an effective menu even for your large crowds. You can also contract with food trucks or other outside vendors to provide variety, as well.


Venue Spotlight: The Village Greens

Our Venue Spotlight series continues this week with a focus on The Village Greens. Best Catering and Events has event spaces of every shape and type, from our intimate FieldHouse Courtyard for events up to 100 people to our sprawling Village Pavilion, which can accommodate 1,000 attendees.

But what if you need even more space, or your event is a bit more active than makes sense for our other spaces? Never fear—we have a few more solutions for you to consider, including The Village Greens.

The Village Greens: Open Outdoor Space for Up to 5,000 People

The Village Greens is a massive open outdoor space that can accommodate events with as many as 5,000 attendees. It’s a perfect location for fundraisers, races, open vendor markets, company picnics or festivals, and more.

Because the space is wide open, it’s endlessly configurable. We have fencing available to divide up the space if your event calls for it, or you can keep the space wide open and let the displays, vendors, or attractions define the space.

Combine with The Village Pavilion for Covered Seating

If your large event could use some covered seating adjacent to the action, talk to us about adding The Village Pavilion to your event rental. This space (which can accommodate 1,000 guests on its own) is adjacent to The Village Greens and makes the perfect complement.

Outside Vendors, Catering or Both

With an event of this size, you have options for feeding the masses. You might elect to bring in food trucks or other vendors, or you might rely on the impressive catering options we offer through our on-site restaurant, The FieldHouse Restaurant and Bar.

Of course, with 5,000 guests, why not both? Give your guests options to increase the impact of your event.


Venue Spotlight: Book Our Entire Property

Rounding out our Venue Spotlight series this week, we’re going big. And we mean really big! If you’re looking to host a truly massive event—one that exceeds even our largest venue, The BackYard—we at Best Catering and Events have one more trick up our sleeve.

You can actually book the entire SilverLakes property. That’s right—the whole property, edge to edge, corner to corner. With space like this, you can host an event for as many as 25,000 people!

Regional Festivals and National Acts

25,000 people is nearly the entire population of the city of Norco! With space like this, your options are nearly endless. Renting our entire property is the perfect solution for everything from regional festivals to national concert acts.

You’ll receive the perfect mix of massive outdoor space as well as private areas, including covered and indoor spaces. You’ll have access to our private lake and The Fort, our lakeside bar, deck and stage area.

Whatever elements you want to plan, chances are we can accommodate your vision with an entire property rental.

Recent Example: Boots in the Park

We’ve had a number of entire property events since our opening, and we’ll highlight one recent example. On two occasions in 2019, we hosted Boots in the Park, a family-friendly country music festival featuring a wide range of up and coming country artists.

They were major affairs, with concerts throughout the day, food trucks and carts, activities for the kids and more.

And while we don’t really like to toot our own horn: the events were both smashing successes.

Your event might not look much like a country music festival. That’s OK. Whatever you want to do, we can bring your vision to life. Contact us today to book your event.


Venue Spotlight: The Village Pavilion

We’re continuing our spotlight series on all the event spaces Best Catering and Events has to offer in today’s post. To recap: we’ve already covered our small and medium venues. The FieldHouse Courtyard with capacity for 100 guests in an outdoor space, and our two medium venues The FieldHouse Veranda and The FieldHouse Terrace are perfect for events hosting up to 250 and 350 guests respectively.

If you need even more space or a greater amount of space flexibility, we’ve still got you covered. This week our spotlight turns to The Village Pavilion.

The Village Pavilion: Big Tent, Endless Possibilities

The Village Pavilion is a large outdoor space that includes a massive white peaked tent. With capacity for up to 1,000 people, The Village Pavilion is a versatile, configurable space that can host a wide range of events.

Dress up The Village Pavilion in the evening with mood lighting and it becomes a fantastic formal dining space. Dress it down during the day with picnic tables for a casual affair. Or take it a different direction entirely and rent it for your next vendor expo style event.

Lawn and Exterior Spaces Included

In addition to the main peaked tent, The Village Pavilion includes a sizeable outdoor lawn area—perfect for relaxing, or even inflatables for the kids. There’s also space on the patio outside the tent for a handful of additional vendors, food trucks or whatever other setups make sense for your event.

Magnificent Catering from The FieldHouse

Your event will be further enhanced if you include an all-star catering offering through our on-site restaurant, The FieldHouse Restaurant and Bar. We’ll customize a menu that scales with you, no matter the size of your event.


Venue Spotlight: The FieldHouse Veranda

We’re continuing our Best Catering and Events venue spotlight series this week with a focus on The FieldHouse Veranda, one of our two medium-sized event spaces.

Last week we covered our smaller venues, The FieldHouse Courtyard (for up to 100 guests) and private rooms in The FieldHouse Restaurant (for up to 50 guests). If you’re looking for a little more space (or just a little bit more interesting of a space), The FieldHouse Veranda may be right for you.

The FieldHouse Veranda: Flexible Covered Outdoor Space for Up to 250

The FieldHouse Veranda is a unique space in our portfolio. It combines a lovely covered patio with an ample grassy lawn, giving you the best of both covered and uncovered outdoor entertaining in one venue. Outdoor heaters are available when needed, as well.

The patio space is versatile and can be arranged with café-style casual seating or with larger banquet-style white tablecloth tables. Two large flat screen TVs can be customized for the needs of your event. These high-tech displays can be configured to show multiple feeds or one large video.

A Green Space As Flexible As You

The Veranda’s green space is equally versatile. It works well for more formal events (picture a string quartet and bistro-style tables draped in white linens), and it’s equally suited for lawn chairs and corn hole tournaments. We can accommodate just about whatever your event calls for.

Catering You’ll Savor

Of course, you’ll need great food for your event, and the top-notch catering from The FieldHouse Restaurant and Bar creates a sumptuous, memorable experience for your guests.
