Holidays at Filoli | Woodside

Step back in time to experience the Christmas spirit of years past all month long at Filoli, one of the Bay Area's grandest country estates. The gardens are open for the holidays, inviting guests to experience the magic of a sleeping garden decorated with twinkling lights. There will also be a European style Christmas market to buy gifts for the loved ones on your list and a holiday wine bar so you can sip while strolling through the delightful holiday decor. Filoli will also continue to host floral design classes for adults, but with special holiday themes during December. Bring the entire family or enjoy a romantic evening at this historic Bay Area Estate reimagined for the holiday season.


Fantasy of Lights | Los Gatos

Turn up the Christmas music and get the cameras ready as you take a slow drive through the Fantasy of Lights, a mile and a half long journey through unbelievable displays of Christmas lights at Vasona Lake County Park, Los Gatos. Tickets must be purchased in advance at here. This treasured annual event put on by the Santa Clara County Parks is sure to put a twinkle in your eye.


The Nutcracker | San Francisco

The world-renowned San Francisco Ballet will once again spoil Bay Area residents with its annual production of The Nutcracker, as always performed at the famous War Memorial Opera House. Get your tickets early because this tradition has been one of the city’s most popular holiday spectacles since its first production in 1944. Young and old are invited to relive the drama and magic of this classic Christmas tale at several showings throughout the month. Opening night is December 13th at the War Memorial Opera House.

Foster city residents will gather at 650 Shell Boulevard just after the sun goes down, 6 pm, tomorrow, December 6th, to countdown the lighting of the town Christmas tree. Come out to meet friends and neighbors while you kick off the holiday season with this time-honored tradition.
