Filoli’s nine-day Holiday Traditions fundraising event runs through Saturday.
Rooms throughout the first floor of the historic house are transformed into a unique atmosphere for the annual Holiday Boutique, with seasonal decorations and festive music. Buffet lunches and evening bistro dining are available at select times during the week with advance reservations.
This year’s theme is “Wise Old Owl.” With a natural, woodsy wonderland environment, the Holiday Boutique provides a distinctive blend of design influences including animals, pinecones, cuckoo clocks and miniature lodges.
The courtyard is reimagined as a rustic lodge.
A variety of local choral and performing groups and Bay Area musicians perform throughout the event.
The collaborative efforts of more than 600 volunteers, along with Filoli staff, create Holiday Traditions each year. The long-standing event, Filoli’s largest fundraiser, supports the stewardship of the National Trust for Historic Preservation site.
Tickets are $25 members, $30 nonmembers.
Filoli is located at 86 Canãda Road, Woodside. For tickets and more information, visit www.filoli.org.
