Fall At Filoli | Sept 2 – Nov 17
Fall is a time when nature finds its own way with beautiful warm days, glorious colors and fabulous clear skies. At Filoli, our fall season has evolved over the years, from being a sleepy time – a pause before the Holidays, to a bounty too plentiful to fully appreciate in a single day, so we have expanded our harvest festivities with new events.
Autumn Festival: Now Harvest Festival and Orchard Festival
Autumn Festival has been expanded to two events: the Harvest Festival, which celebrates cultural traditions of the harvest season with family-oriented activities in mind; and the Orchard Day, which allows an opportunity for fruit connoisseurs of all ages to be immersed in the Gentleman’s Orchard and to learn more about fruit production at Filoli.
Fall is also when we host the annual Filoli Gala in the Garden where will feature the finale flowers of the season with a forest-inspired feast. Fames cookbook author, Erin Gleeson has inspired the dinner and Suzanne Legallet will be the honorary host helping us highlight the Internship Program.
Since opening the Estate Trail in 2017, we have had more interest in Red’s Barn and the Nature Center. To add a new spin, we have created the Bluegrass at the Barn Sunday afternoon concert series. Families can take a short hike on the Trail and experience the nature preserve in a whole new way. In the nature preserve we have an abundance of natural beauty and engaging stories which also reflects our new mission to “connect a rich past with a vibrant future through beauty, nature and shared stories”.
We also want to continue to share stories about the people, plants and animals that call Filoli home through the Nest: Creating Home exhibition, that continues through fall.
This fall at Filoli is bursting at the seams with the bounty of the season. Navigate through the menu to discover what we have in store for the golden season of the year!
