MVCPA Business & Community Sponsorships

Some Ways to Partner with the MVCPA

The Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts plays an integral part in the Mountain View Business sector, attracting audiences to 400+ events a year at our 600 seat MainStage, 200 Seat SecondStage, 300 seat outdoor amphitheater ParkStage, rehearsal studio and lobby spaces. These same Center attendees patronize stores and restaurants in the city (before and after events), contributing significantly to the City’s overall economic success. The Center is always looking for ways to help leverage the creative and collaborative synergy of the surrounding businesses for mutual benefit. Individuals or Businesses that are interested in partnering with MVCPA in any capacity should contact: Susannah Greenwood, at or 650-903-6558.
