Yuletide Marketplace:
way better than

Black Friday
Yuletide Marketplace

What could be better than being finished with your holiday shopping before your friends have even begun? Our annual Yuletide Marketplace will be up and running this Friday and Saturday, November 22-23, from 9:30am-3pm—and it's the perfect way to get all of your gifts in one place while also enjoying an afternoon in our beautiful historic Villa!

Pick up unique holiday decorations to get your home ready for the season. Discover local food artisans, who will have delicious chocolates, jams, and other delights for you to taste and purchase. Find a beautiful piece of handmade jewelry for your loved one. And don't forget the artwork: from original paintings to delightful crafts, you're sure to find the perfect gift for your friends, your family, or yourself!

When it's time to take a break, make your way to the pop-up bistro inside the Villa, where light lunch options, coffee, and other snacks will be available.

If you love spending the holidays with us, there are also a limited number of tickets available for our "And All That Jazz" Holiday Gala on Sunday, November 24, and for our Holiday Champagne High Tea on Friday, December 6.

Save the Trees:
Volunteers needed to help stop
Sudden Oak Death

Montalvo is perfect for holiday parties!

Sudden Oak Death (SOD) is a serious tree illness that is threatening the survival of several oak species in California. We need YOUR help to slow down this epidemic!

Join us this Saturday, November 23, from 10am-12pm in the Lucas Artists Residency Commons for our latest SOD Blitz. This FREE workshop is your chance to learn about Sudden Oak Death and join other volunteers in helping to detect symptoms on trees around Montalvo. The results of your work will become part of a detailed local map of disease distribution, which will then be used by scientists to identify, treat, and curb SOD.

Interested in helping to save the trees? Email Kelly Sicat at ksicat@montalvoarts.org to RSVP. See you on Saturday!
