You’re invited! 2017 Public Event Listings

Every year Willowdale Estate hosts a series of public events to share our unique space with our friends, neighbors and clients.  Please join us as we open our doors to the public. Events are separated into three categories:


HISTORIC TOURS – Guided tours of the estate featuring historic details, context and conversation about the history of Willowdale with a light reception to follow. 

SIGNATURE EVENTS – Themed gatherings tailored to the seasons offering food, drink and entertainment.

WILLOWDALE KITCHENS – Food focused events including cooking classes led by our Executive Chef AND our exclusive private dining Red Door Supper Club experience.
