What can Simi Valley host? Maybe the question should be this: What CAN’T Simi Valley host? With multiple venues and a great climate, this area can really deliver. From field sports to golf to bowling to ice sports and beyond, Simi Valley is more than ready to give your events a place to play, and the Visit Simi Valley team is here to explain why, where and how.
It’s easy to get there: Simi Valley is situated in Southeast Ventura County, adjacent to the San Fernando Valley and 37 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles, making it a part of the Greater Los Angeles area. Simi Valley's main artery, the 118 Freeway (Ronald Reagan Freeway), can be accessed by Interstate 5, Interstate 405 and the 210 Freeway in the east and by the 23 Freeway in the west. The 23 Freeway connects to the 101 Freeway.
