Upcoming Events

Enjoy an unforgettable experience year-round at Filoli Historic House and Garden! We invite you to experience the incredible lineup for 2018. The still beauty of the winter season focuses on unlocking Filoli to showcase behind-the-scenes opportunities. Come spring, the Garden is bursting with a beautiful palette of flowers. This summer, we will celebrate the Colors of California which will be highlighted by the Flower Show and two outstanding art exhibitions. Fall will boast a golden harvest when we will invite guests to learn more about the agrarian past of the estate. Finally, there will be a luminous display for the holidays, expanding on our new Holidays at Filoli program from 2017.

We also regularly host rotating exhibits and afternoon teas. Why not take a class from an expert artist or gardener? There are many reasons to return to Filoli! So whether you are on vacation, exploring local landmarks, or looking for a place to relax, Filoli is the perfect place to make memories with family and friends. See the calendar below to learn more about what’s happening during your next visit.
