Holidays at Filoli is one of the Bay Area’s most beautiful and lesser-known light displays, taking place at Filoli Estate & Gardens in Woodside. Thousands of glittering lights will adorn the garden’s trees, plants, and hedges for a must-see experience starting November 19 through January 8, 2023.
Twinkling lights will be placed throughout the gardens and lit both day and night. During the day they add a new dimension to the vibrant fall foliage, and by night they transform the gardens into the ultimate enchanted escape. The house itself will also be decked out with festive décor holiday trees, charming Christmas music. Enjoy sights, sounds, and scents to evoke the holiday spirit throughout the estate.
Filoli will host a series of fun seasonal events and attractions through December, including the following:
- Santa Days – Dec. 3-4, 10-11, 17-18, 23 – Snap pics with your kids on Santa’s lap and enjoy holiday treats on the Woodland Court.
- Flora Parties – Dec. 6-8, 13-15, 20-21 – Make your own holiday wreath while sipping on mulled wine or hot cider.
- Private holiday firepits – available daily – Sip on seasonal drinks beside a roaring fire pit in the garden.
Daytime tickets (10am-4pm) cost $32 for adults and $22 for children 5-17. Nighttime tickets (4pm-8pm) cost $38 for adults and $20 for children 5-17. Children under 5 get in free, and members get 20% off. Just be sure to reserve in advance, because early bird pricing ends October 21.
The Filoli property covers 654 acres in Woodside. The house and garden themselves cover 16 immaculate acres, having been beautifully maintained for over a century. The gardens are unique in that they bloom all year round, thanks to seasonal planting and carefully planned maintenance by the estate’s 14 full-time horticulturalists.
