Calendar of Events

Our Calendar focuses on the land, preserving days for honoring its inhabitants and sharing the
joy of its bounty. Watch for on-property events and ENJOY!

Note: At Mar Vista we intentionally keep the campus very dark and night; no screens, no street lights, only the milky way, the north star and an occasional moon to guide you. We promote star gazing and have incorporated some of the most notable meteor showers in the calendar. Learn more here.
