Winter at Filoli

A- A A+

Filoli Unlocked |  Jan 9 – Feb 18

For the first time ever, Filoli will be open for a Winter Season. This season will unlock some of the behind-the-scenes opportunities, a new line-up of specialty tours, and an Operatic Opening for members only. We also have Valentine’s Teas, an all-new Conservation Roadshow, and a black and white photography exhibit that features architectural interest. New stories will be shared as we open our doors for an exciting new year. We invite you to come visit this winter to experience the magic of the winter Garden and hear new tales of the families.

January is Membership Month!

As we kick off the new year in 2018, Filoli has many ways for you to enjoy the benefits of a Filoli membership.

  • During January, all members, regardless of membership level, can bring one guest for free every time they visit! Please show your membership card at the front desk and your guest will receive complimentary admission.
  • Be sure to visit the Clock Tower Shop to purchase member-exclusive products, such as our beautiful new Filoli stationery and a specially-packaged soap set featuring art from our historic collection!
  • Don’t forget that members receive a 20% discount on all class registrations! Many old favorites and new offerings are available online and in our 2018 Winter/Spring Class Catalog.
