Safe and Sober Grad Parties Since 1978!

Graduation marks the end of one exciting chapter in a student’s life and begins the next. It’s the culmination of hard work, fun, first-time experiences and the building of life-long friendships… and possibly the last time together with favorite classmates!

What better way to celebrate this great achievement than with an all night party with friends where all you have to do is show up and everything is set for you to just enjoy. We feature some of the most exciting venues in town and the best combination of entertainment all in a drug and alcohol-free environment.

Frequently Asked Questions

How soon do we need to reserve a venue?
Every year, schools across the state are calling earlier and earlier to reserve a party location, in an attempt to get their first venue choice. As soon as the actual graduation date is set, you will want to be ready to put a deposit down to hold your spot.  We recommend getting started early with WCE when forming committees as we offer some really unique fundraising opportunities, ideas, and options and can help you with the process.  And the earlier you start planning, the more time you have to fundraise.
How much of a deposit is required to reserve our party?

$1,500.00, along with a signed contract, will hold the date and reserve your venue(s) and entertainment.

What is a good number of students to start with as a minimum guarantee on our contract?
Usually, one half is usually a good rule of thumb. Rural schools tend to have a higher graduation party participation than city schools. A good guideline is to look at what the attendance from previous years has been as well.
Do we need to obtain additional liability insurance for the night of the event?
West Coast Entertainment exceeds industry standards for liability insurance, ensuring your event is protected. In addition, all of the venues have insurance.  We do not require that your group carries additional insurance. We leave it up to each individual parent committee to decide for themselves.
Will someone from West Coast come to one of our initial committee meetings to discuss venues options and answer questions?
Yes. Absolutely. We can present to you with a slideshow, provide packets for you to keep and answer questions as a group. Just call to schedule a date and time and we will be there!

Event Security

Safety is an important part of any graduation party. Parents, teachers and West Coast Entertainment want to make sure that students have a safe and fun time. Based on years of experience, West Coast Entertainment believes that Licensed Security Personnel are the best choice for ensuring safety at graduation parties.
Police officers are NOT allowed to perform pat-downs unless they have reasonable suspicion of a crime (noticing a weapon or suspecting drugs or alcohol). Licensed Security Personnel, however, are required by WCE to perform pat-downs as each student enters a facility. This prevents contraband from entering the venue. WCE provides male and female security personnel at each event to perform such pat-downs in a respectful manner.
Additionally, where a Police Officer may only take action if a crime is being committed in their presence (student threatening another, damaging property or is proven to be intoxicated), Licensed Security Personnel are present to PREVENT a situation from elevating to the level of damage or injury.
Although the Police Guild uses a ratio of 1 Police Officer for every 100 students, WCE policy is to have a minimum of 2 Licensed Security Personnel at each event, with a security ratio of one Security Officer per 50 students.
As a standard, WCE will include Licensed Security Personnel for your event. If you would prefer, WCE will gladly add Police Officers to compliment your Security Personnel for a nominal fee.




When you haven’t seen classmates for years, you need to rely on the Seattle Event Planning Expertise of West Coast Entertainment to guide you through the steps to set up a get together so great, everyone will be looking forward to the next reunion. Our casino parties provide a great way to get conversation going and renew old friendships. Or let a DJ or live band bring back memories of music from your high school or college days.
