Orchard Days

Orchard Days

Weekends, September 25 - October 31 | 10am-5pm

The Gentleman’s Orchard will be open every weekend, September 25-October 31 and on October 11 for Indigenous Peoples' Day, for Filoli visitors of all ages to enjoy. Weave through rows of apple trees and grapevines as you learn about food production past and present, listen to live music from 1pm-3pm and find local artists selling their work. Before you go, settle into a redwood chair in the shade and sip on cider in the exquisite autumn light.

**Programming may be altered due to weather.

PLEASE NOTE: Fruit picking is not permitted. Learn more about how Filoli fruit is used here.

About Filoli's Orchard

Filoli’s 7-acre Gentleman’s Orchard was a vital component of William Bourn’s vision of a self- sustaining estate. A feature of many American country houses at the turn of the century, a Gentleman’s Orchard is a collection of fruits grown for pleasure rather than for commercial production.

The Bourns originally planted their orchard with 1,000 trees, including apples, pears, plums, apricots, walnuts, figs, and quinces. About 115 remained when the Orchard was restored; today, it holds more than 500. Filoli continues to preserve this historic collection that includes rare and historically significant varieties. See them all at Orchard Days this fall!
