Step Back in Time 2017

Let us take you back to the roaring twenties, with jazz age speakeasies, bobbed hair, and flappers. Come to the party in period attire (optional) or don your fedora and be surrounded by those who have dressed for the occasion. Enjoy a rare opportunity to stroll the House and Garden in the evening hours and take in the majesty of this country estate.

Your evening includes live music, hors d’oeuvres, and refreshments. All of this will be served by Filoli staff and volunteers in period dress reminiscent of the Bourn’s 1920 household staff.

Enjoy a variety of activities including lawn bowling with the Palo Alto Lawn Bowls Club, a cricket demonstration by The Marin Cricket Club, Ballroom dancing lessons in the Filoli Ballroom, and dancing on the Tennis Court. Tea sandwiches and other delectable hors d’oeuvres will be served along with beer and wine. Also, don’t forget to check out the showcase of vintage cars that will be on display as well.

New this year is a VIP ticket which grants special guests early entry at 4:30pm with a reserved space in the Garden House featuring an upgraded bar, elevated food station with a fondue buffet, and casino tables for your playing pleasure. You won’t want to miss it!

So wear your dancing shoes and join us for Step Back In Time.
