Grand Reopening

Experience the Difference at your new Orange County Market Place during its Grand Reopening on Saturday, March 31, 2018. Spectra, managers of the OC Market Place, are hosting this free community gathering and relaunch event from 8AM to 3PM.  

The Grand Reopening includes a full day of activities featuring a ribbon cutting supported by the Costa Mesa Chamber of Commerce followed by a performance by the Costa Mesa High School Band. The day is dedicated to the Orange County community with a fundraiser and live entertainment event, Taste of the Arts, supporting the Community Outreach Alliance. COA artists will perform on the stage in the South Event Space and host art installations and experiences, alongside a car show with the Cadillac Kings Car Club.

Concurrently, patrons can shop the Market Place while experiencing the vintage handmade market, Behind the Picket Fence, located in the East Event Space of the property. Easter activities are available for families with children, including Easter egg hunts in the Centennial Farm, face painting, and an Easter Scavenger Hunt throughout the Market Place.
