Summer Spectacular at Filoli: Art, Flowers, and Nature

The summer Garden is full of brilliant colors, wonderful aromas, inspiring collections of art and is surrounded by one of the most beautiful nature preserves. The sights, smells and tastes of the summer garden are a treat for the senses. Join us for two-days of talks, walks, demos and hands-on fun while exploring the bounty of the summer garden as presented by our knowledgeable Filoli instructors, staff and volunteers.

While visiting don’t miss the stunning sculpture exhibit in the Garden, Filoli Inspirations and the scenic multiple-media exhibit, Historic Gardens of the World, in the Visitor Center. On hand to answer your gardening questions will be the Garden Information Docents in the Garden Shop courtyard and the Orchard Docents in front of the Visitor and Education Center.

All programming is FREE for members or with paid admission to Filoli. Reservations are not needed!
