There are two venues located on the grounds of Montalvo: The Lilian Fontaine Garden Theatre (GT) and the Claire Loftus Carriage House Theatre (CH). Gates for the Lilian Fontaine Garden Theatre open 90 minutes to showtime, seating one hour prior. Gates for the Claire Loftus Carriage House Theatre open one hour prior to showtime, seating 30 minutes prior. Limited concessions such as coffee, tea, hot chocolate and cookies are available.
The historic Montalvo Villa is home to Montalvo Arts Center. The Villa is not open for public viewing due to the large volume of events. Once known strictly as a concert venue, Montalvo now boasts new programming, up-and-coming artists and more and prides itself on being the only arts organization of its stature between Los Angeles and San Francisco. The beautiful grounds are also a great place to hike for a view of the valley down below or have a picnic, although alcohol is strictly prohibited.
