Are you looking to impress your colleagues with a company holiday event at a truly memorable Bay Area venue? Look no further than Montalvo!

Whether you’re planning a simple luncheon or a lively extravaganza with food, a DJ, and party games, we have the right space for you.

We can host small gatherings inside the Villa or large events for up to 200 people. Have even more guests? Add tenting over the front veranda or the Spanish Courtyard and enjoy the beauty of Montalvo's gardens and grounds in any weather. Our 300-seat Carriage House Theatre can also be used for headliner entertainment before or after your cocktail or dinner reception. The possibilities are endless!

Montalvo is located only five minutes from major highways and 20 minutes from downtown San Jose, but a party here feels like an exclusive getaway. We have an exemplary list of caterers for you to choose from, and our professional event team will assist you before and during your event.

Sounds perfect, doesn't it? Give us a call at 408-961-5829 or email events@montalvoarts.org for more information.

Yuletide begins
November 21

Holiday season is here! Beginning Friday, November 21, join us in the Villa as the volunteers from our Montalvo Service Group host a series of delightfully festive Yuletide events that continues into December.

Get a jumpstart on your shopping at the Yuletide Marketplace on November 21 & 22, where you can find a wide selection of locally-made arts & crafts, holiday treats, gift ideas, and more. Be sure to visit the bistro for a light lunch and hot chocolate while you're here!

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

And on December 12 & 14, don't miss a series of teas geared to any age: kids can meet Santa at our Children's Tea, while adults can enjoy a cocktail or two at our Morning Tea or Champagne High Tea.



Have a classy Christmas
with Peter White


Nothing is classier than jazz during Christmastime, and we've got a talented trio ready to get you in the holiday spirit with some festive holiday tunes in our intimate Carriage House Theatre!

On Thursday, December 4, at 6pm and 8:15pm (two shows!), join us for A Peter White Christmas featuring White on guitar, the talented Mindi Abair on saxophone and the fabulous trumpter Rick Braun. Peter White is renowned as a smooth jazz maestro who creates spirited melodies and soulful grooves; the three will perform an assortment of some of your favorite Chritsmas songs. These seasonal renditions are sure to captivate!
