Filoli in the fall

 

The 654-acre Filoli estate is kicking off its annual fall festivities with special events that run from Sept. 7 through Nov. 4.

This year's theme, "Golden Harvest," honors the estate's agricultural, homesteading and preservation practices. 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. Be sure to view the mixed-media art exhibit that will be on display at the Visitor and Education Center.

On Saturday, Sept. 22, the estate will hold its daylong Autumn Festival, celebrating family and cultural traditions related to the fall harvest.

There will be heirloom fruit tasting from Filoli's orchards, autumn-themed floral demonstrations, orchard walks, live entertainment and other activities, including pumpkin decorating, puppet shows and a cider tasting, as well as a beekeeping demonstration and visits from zoo animals.

The Autumn Afterglow, with food, music, and beer tasting from Fort Point Brewery at the Woodland Beer Garden, is scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m.

Filoli is located at 86 Canada Road, Woodside. For tickets or more information, go to filoli.org.
