Yuletide Marketplace

We hope to see you this Friday and Saturday from 9:30am-3:30pm for the Montalvo Service Group's annual Yuletide Marketplace. You'll see the historic Villa decorated in holiday splendor and you'll have a chance to find gift items from local artisans!

The two-day Marketplace features 30 different vendors offering unique wares in stations located throughout the Villa. You'll find holiday art and decorations, collectables, photography, clothing, crafts, and specialty gourmet food items that make great gifts for your friends and loved ones. 

A bistro is also available for lunch and drinks from 11:30am-1:30pm each day. For $15, you can take a break to enjoy a sandwich with your choice of soup, plus a holiday cookie, coffee, and tea. And when you're finished shopping, go for a walk around our grounds to enjoy the beautiful fall colors.

Admission to this truly one-of-a-kind vendor fair is FREE! On-site parking is $5 (cash only; please pay at the gate). So come, spend a day at Montalvo and get your holiday shopping done early!

Kick Off the New Year with Paula Poundstone
Paula Poundstone

We could all use a little levity after the crazy year we've had, so why not start 2017 off with some laughs by joining us for the hilarious Paula Poundstone on Saturday, January 7, at 9:30pm in our indoor Carriage House Theatre?

As a comedienne, author, actress, and commentator, Poundstone is one of the country’s foremost humorists, having amassed a laundry list of accolades in her 30-year career, including an American Comedy Award. You can hear her as a regular panelist on NPR’s #1 show, Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me, while her brilliant, semi-improvised stand-up routines have been showcased on numerous HBO comedy specials.

The evening's 7pm show is completely sold out, but tickets still remain for the 9:30pm performance. We expect the late show to fill up too, so you'd better claim your seats quickly before they're gone! Click below or call the Box Office at 408-961-5858, Monday-Friday, 10am-4pm.
