Mission and Goals


To unite the Private Event industry of the state of California in order to provide proper advocacy with state and local laws and regulations, and to provide our members with best practices and interpretations of state and local laws and regulations.

CAPE California

California Association of Private Events advocates for businesses of all sizes and individuals that make up the Private Event and Live Entertainment industries. We aim to provide resources at the local and state level of California to aid in the growth and success of the Private Event sector. CAPE allows its members the opportunity to have representation in the form of lobbyists and other legal guidance within the State of California.


  1. Build a network of business owners and individuals working in the Private Industry sector to advocate for our right to return to work.
  2. Call attention to the adversely affected businesses and workforce due to the fallout of the COVID-19 epidemic. California is currently the ONLY state in the country with no guidance on when we can begin to re-open our industry, and the only state where no events
    or gatherings of any kind can occur. We seek to change that. We know we can begin to operate our industry once again in a safe and responsible manner.
  3. Address the issues surrounding AB5 laws and advocate for ways on how to protect Gig Workers and Independent Contractors in our industry.
  4. Provide legal interpretation of current laws to businesses in order to ensure compliance across the state.
