Rusted Root
on their way Nov 6

Rusted Root


"Intoxicating...powerful rhythmic currents"
                                          —Los Angeles Times

On Thursday, November 6, at 7:30pm, don't miss a fabulously fun performance by Rusted Root in our intimate Carriage House Theatre.

Perhaps best known for their hit songs "Send Me On My Way" and "Ecstasy," Rusted Root fuses acoustic, rock, and world music with a driving percussion section that draws from African, Latin, and Native American influences. The result is a unique and upbeat sound sure to get you on your feet!

Your kids might remember their music from the soundtracks of the movies Matilda and Ice Age (so bring the family along!), but these talented performers create a smart, sophisticated sound with a positive message that all ages will love. 

Will you be there? Join our Facebook event page and invite your friends—this music is even better when it's shared!

Can your ears change what you taste? Can touch impact vision?

Join us on Thursday, October 30, from 6:30-8:30pm for Multisensory: An Art Party—an interactive evening with artists from the Lucas Artists Residency Program exploring how our senses work together to interpret the outer world.

This event is programmed in association with our latest exhibition in the Project Space Gallery, Perceptual: Chris Fraser and Justin Lowman. Food and beverages will be available as you mingle with artists and expand your way of thinking. $10 suggested donation at the door.

Better watch out:
Yuletide is coming!


Yuletide at Montalvo! (Creative Commons license: )

After sizzling 90 degree temperatures outside all week, could it really be time to think about the holidays? The answer (of course) is YES!

Each year starting in November, the volunteers from our wonderful Montalvo Service Group host a series of Yuletide events—and for 2014, things are expanding.

From 9:30am-2:30pm on both Friday, November 21, and Saturday, November 22, get a jumpstart on your shopping at the Yuletide Marketplace, which offers up locally-made arts & crafts, holiday treats, gift ideas, and lots of cheer.

On Sunday, November 23, at 5:30pm, celebrate the season at the "Around the World" Gala—a dinner party featuring international cuisine, music, dancing, and a silent auction.

For the weekend of December 12-14, enjoy an expanded series of holiday teas featuring an assortment of small sandwiches, pastries, and beverages! On Friday, December 12, from 10am-12pm, it's a Morning Tea; on Sunday, December 14, from 10am-12pm, bring the kids for a special Children's Tea & Visit with Santa; and later that afternoon, from 2-5pm, treat yourself to a traditional Champagne High Tea.

To purchase tickets to the Gala or the Teas, click the button below or call our Box Office at 408-961-5858 10am-4pm Monday-Friday. The Marketplace is free ($5 on-site parking).
