Come to Holiday Traditions
“Celebrate! 100 Years of Holidays”

Front of the main house lit up for Holiday Traditions

Friday, November 25 — Saturday, December 3, 2016

Step into the historic House, where, over the past century, the holidays have been special times at Filoli. Family traditions were created and celebrated by the Bourn and Roth families. This year Filoli recreates that experience at Holiday Traditions.

This nine–day event kicks off on Opening Night November 25 when the Dining Room transforms into a yesteryear holiday party with Roth decorations and centennial memorabilia. You’ll enjoy sumptuous appetizers, champagne, wine, and other beverages under the festively–lit tent on the Dining Room Terrace and in the Dining Room (black tie encouraged).

On the following days, you can shop the day or evening holiday boutiques, enjoy a buffet lunch, cafe dining, or attend the delightful children’s lunch. Every day is enhanced by musical entertainment to lift your holiday spirit and add to your festive experience.

Please purchase your tickets in advance. Net proceeds from Holiday Traditions go toward the preservation and conservation of this beautiful estate.

Gather your family and friends to experience the best of this holiday season!
