Summer Luncheons & Summer Concerts

Added THU, JUL 3RD 2014

Eight concerts
coming this summer!


Our beautiful outdoor Lilian Fontaine Garden Theatre is located behind the Villa on a sloping hill surrounded by trees. It has been a performance venue at Montalvo since the days of Senator Phelan, who hosted lectures, concerts, and poetry readings here as far back as the 1920s. Today, it is a state-of-the-art 1,600-seat amphitheater and one of the South Bay's most beloved outdoor concert spaces.

This summer, you will have eight opportunities to catch a concert in this historic venue! Take a look at the schedule below; get your tickets soon, as many of these performances are nearly sold out. When you purchase, be sure to make your evening complete by adding Dining on the Terrace, our elegant pre-concert meal catered by Café Primavera.

We want to wish all of our friends a happy and safe 4th of July weekend!

Montalvo will be open all weekend during our usual summer hours (9am-5pm), so bring the family and enjoy the lush lawn, lovely gardens, and our new Art on the Grounds exhibition Fun and Games.

There is no admission charge and parking is free, but please consider placing a small gift in one of our donation boxes located at the West Lawn and the Italianate Garden. Any amount you can give helps keep the grounds beautiful and open year round.

See you soon!

There's really nothing better on a summer afternoon than sitting on the veranda of Montalvo's historic Villa, looking out on the fabulous Great Lawn and Intalianate Garden, and enjoying a delicious lunch. So, every year in July and August, our Montalvo Service Group offers a series of weekly Summer Luncheons with a rotating menu and a mini fashion show!
