Invite family and friends to join you in celebration of Filoliís Centennial and Motherís Day at the 2016 Filoli Flower Show. Enjoy viewing floral interpretations of California Then and Now 1916-2016 created by dozens of professional and amateur designers. You will visit many of Californiaís most iconic sites and events of the past one hundred years in our beautifully furnished and preserved historic House and renowned formal Garden.

New designers join our perennial exhibitors to interpret this yearís theme. Many of our childrenís bouquets (always a favorite) celebrate Filoliís BIG birthday. Other exhibits portray bits of California history, movies filmed at Filoli, favorite locations throughout the Golden State, and products invented or developed here.

The traditional Motherís Day weekend event celebrates both the past century in California and the Houseís 100th birthday through flower accented vintage cars in the House courtyard, dozens of floral arrangements, elegant table settings, and childrenís bouquets in the House, as well as horticultural collections, educational exhibits, and garden art throughout the Garden and Courtyards. This year, you can expect to see fairy gardens, hanging gardens, wreaths, and baskets located on the Tennis Court where you can also dine and listen to music on Saturday and Sunday.

The Garden is always lovely to stroll and the additional displays throughout will charm you. Meander through the vintage greenhouses, open for touring during this weekend. Filoli Garden Information Docents are available daily from 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm to answer your questions. Flower Arranging Demonstrations will take place Friday and Saturday afternoon and live musical entertainment every day will enhance your trip to the Flower Show.

Sellouts are expected so order your tickets early!
