Things to do in Ventura County

Evenings in Ventura are some of the most precious times of the year. The clear sky, the bright stars, and the cool breezes from the ocean create a magical atmosphere where it seems anything can happen. What better way to spend those evenings than enjoying friends and fun under the stars and awash in a sea of sounds at one of Ventura’s most historic and beautiful venues?

“Music Under the Stars” celebrates an eclectic mix of musical styles over the course of summer, featuring performers that range from Beatles cover bands to Afro-Cuban Jazz to New Orleans blues and everything in between. These artists will play at the historic Olivas Adobe, one of Ventura County’s oldest and most historic structures. It’s rumored a female ghost haunts the hallowed halls, making the adobe one of the county’s few “officially” haunted locations.
