Celebrating the mystery and majesty of the night sky, Montalvo Arts Center plunges patrons into an evening of science, art, and stargazing. A Q&A session with a NASA lunar scientist launches a night of inquiry into the depths of space. A storyteller weaves engrossing tales for listeners as the sun sets, and kids and adults can learn to create their own entertainment in art and music workshops. Space-themed movies grace the screen of the Carriage House Theatre, and a battery of telescopes on the Great Lawn search out the annual Perseid meteor showers. Throughout the evening, beverage and snack vendors keep rumbling tummies from scaring off skittish constellations. Guests must bring their own sleeping bags, and are not permitted to bring tents or alcohol.

Montalvo Arts Center

San Francisco mayor and US senator James Duval Phelan built the Villa Montalvo in 1912 as a bastion of art, hosting such writers as Jack London and Edwin Markham in conversation-filled luncheons and creativity-fueling vacations. After his death, Phelan bequeathed the house and grounds to the public, asking that they continue its role as an incubator of inspiration. Today, the center hosts artist residencies, gallery exhibitions, and educational opportunities for visitors. Surrounding the wealth of culture, the 175-acre grounds include miles of hiking trails through woodlands densely populated with muses, multiple gardens including a meticulously manicured Italianate garden, and a picnic-ready Great Lawn.
