Filoli is a 654 acre country estate constructed between 1915 and 1929. It consists of 16 acres of formal gardens, a 10 acre Gentleman’s orchard, a 54000 square foot mansion with 43 rooms (excluding bathrooms and storage rooms), and several hiking trails. The mansion has been featured in over 25 movie and tv shows including Heaven Can Wait, Dynasty, George of The Jungle, and The Wedding Planner. Included in this tour will be a guided tour of the orchard which provides many of the scions for the northern California scion exchanged, and self guided tours of the rest of Filoli’s gardens and house. Many of the gardens are formally enclosed spaces or “outdoor rooms”.
Normal cost of entrance and a guided tour of the orchard would be $32, but they have graciously offered it to CRFG Festival of Fruit for the discounted cost of $10. Words are inadequate to describe what you will see here—you must see with your own eyes! There is also a restaurant and gift shop on site. Check out www.filoli.org for general information or

After the guided tour from 10:30 to 11:30, your ticket will allow you to visit the main grounds of Filoli for a self guided tour until 5:00 pm.
