Golden Harvest | Sept 7 – Nov 4

Filoli has been a continually operating estate for more than 100 years. The agricultural, homesteading, and preservation practices will be honored with this year’s theme of Golden Harvest. There will be antique farm equipment throughout the property, tours of the Gentleman’s Orchard, and tales from the families and staff who built Filoli’s reputation as one of the finest remaining country estates of the early 20th century. Be sure to view the golden mixed-media art exhibit that will be on display at the Visitor and Education Center.
