The Montalvo Arts Center is a center for the arts in Saratoga, California, snuggled in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains. It includes an art and cultural center, a park with hiking trails, and the historic Villa Montalvo. The villa is a Mediterranean revival mansion built in 1914 for California businessman James Duval Phelan. After Phelan died, the entire estate was donated to the State of California to be used as a park and later as a cultural and arts center. The villa and the arts center sit on 175 acres with several large buildings surrounded by gardens and natural areas. The center has two theaters, an art gallery, and an artist residency complex. Besides hosting art exhibitions, the mansion also hosts many weddings and other celebrations.
The Historic Saratoga Village is Saratoga's historic downtown district, located on Big Basin Way just off Highway 9. The village is great place to explore walking, with quaint stores, unique shops, cafés, and restaurants. The main street, Big Basin Way, has a number of excellent cafés and upscale restaurants, fashion boutiques, and other small businesses. As you leave the main street, you will come to a creek, a nice park, and small, quiet residential streets perfect for walking.

Every annual season presents three fully staged productions with their own live orchestra. Their program includes both musical classics and less known but equally entertaining shows. The theatre was formed in 1963 by the Saratoga Federated Church. The theater group presented early productions in the Saratoga church’s Richards Hall.

The program also grew and started presenting Bay Area premiers of popular Broadway musicals such as Mame, Hello, Dolly, and State Fair. In addition, their regular season featured specials such as the Night Visitors at Christmas time.
