General Information

Visit the beautiful grounds at Montalvo Arts Center. Take a hike up the hillside for an amazing view of the valley, or have a picnic on the front lawn. Montalvo presents a diverse array of world-class performers in a variety of musical genres, comedy, theatre, dance, and other performing arts in the beautiful outdoor Lilian Fontaine Garden Theatre; the intimate, 300-seat Carriage House Theatre; the historic Villa; and on the Great Lawn. The Center also organizes three art exhibitions a year on its 175-acre campus–two exhibitions in its Project Space Gallery (September-January and February-June) and one on its grounds (June-October). Dogs are allowed on the upper trails with a leash. The historic Villa is not open to the public except during paid tours, rentals, and other events.

Parking Information

As you enter the Main Gate you will first arrive at Parking Lot 1 where the Artist Residency is located off to your right. If you are coming to the Villa, Garden Theatre, Carriage House, the Box Office, or to visit the hiking trails behind the Villa, continue through Lot 1 up the road past the Front Lawn. You will see parking lot 2 on the right side of the Villa and lots 3 and 4 on the left side of the Villa. Please drive slowly through the estate, as we have many visitors walking the grounds including children, the elderly, and deer.
