Celebrating fall

 

Filoli is kicking off the fall harvest season with its Autumn at Filoli Festival on Saturday, Sept. 24.

The celebration is a once-a-year opportunity for guests to explore the 654-acre historic country estate and sample a variety of heirloom fruits, as well as other treats, including apple cider and pear butter, which are grown in the heritage orchard and contains the largest heirloom fruit tree collection in the United States. The Gentleman's Orchard contains more than 650 heirloom fruit trees.

There also will be a special floral demonstration with displays from the property's 16 acres of formal gardens. Docents will be on-hand to answer questions about the house and gardens and to conduct orchard tours.

Other highlights include live music and activities for children, including performing parrots, old-fashioned relay races and centennial games, a puppet show, a magician and a pumpkin patch.

Autumn at Filoli Festival is from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.. Admission is $25 (adult nonmember),$20 (members), $10 (ages 5-17) and $5 (ages 3-4). This event is popular and may sell out. Check website for information before you go.
