Holidays at Filoli

A- A A+

A Century of Traditions

Filoli wants to thank the community for experiencing a new vision for the Bay Area’s finest Country Estate. Family traditions were honored at the historic Filoli House. We featured a story of Christmases from 1917 to 1975 with lush and beautiful décor in every room. The Garden remained open during this magical time with special holiday touches during the day and elegant lighting in the evening. The tradition of inspired holiday shopping was reimagined with centerpiece trees in the Clock Tower Shop and local vendors in a setting reminiscent of European Christmas markets. Entertainment brought to life the sounds of the holidays. This new tradition offered something for everyone!
