Is the Reagan Library in Los Angeles?

No. The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library & Museum is in Simi Valley—a 60-minute drive northwest of downtown Los Angeles (without traffic). It's roughly a 35-minute drive north/northwest of LAX Airport (without traffic). We suggest renting a car to ease transportation considerations while in the area.

Where is the gala taking place on the Reagan Library campus?

The gala will take place in the stunning Air Force One Pavilion at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library & Museum.

What time does the event begin and end?

VIP Reception: 5:30-6:30 PM
The photo line will begin promptly at 6:10 PM and last for 20 minutes.

General Welcome Reception: 6:00-7:00 PM

Please arrive on time to enjoy the full program. We aim to conclude the evening by 9:30 PM

What should I wear?

Attire is black-tie optional. The majority of men wear tuxedos, women generally wear semi-formal, elegant evening-attire.

Which hotels are recommended for attendees?

We encourage you to take advantage of our room blocks at Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village or Residence Inn & Suites by Marriott Los Angeles Westlake Village.

Is parking available at Reagan Library?

Yes, there is ample complimentary parking available.

Can I explore the library and museum during the event?

No, exhibits will close at 5:00 PM. However, the museum offers docent-led tours for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. We strongly recommend returning to the museum during your visit to enjoy the exciting exhibits and facilities available.

Where is the Reagan Ranch?

Rancho del Cielo, Ronald Reagan's "Western White House" is in Santa Barbara—another 90 minutes northwest of the Reagan Library.

Is there an Afterparty?

We'll announce designated spots where folks can informally gather in the area. As West Hollywood is an hour+ drive, we encourage you to stay in the area.
