Exclusive Event: A Summer Day at Bullocks Wilshire

The event is usually held at the end of July/beginning of August and begins with a docent-led tour of the restored architectural jewel. Each of the first five tours culminates with a luncheon, and the last tour ends with high tea - all of which feature specialty items from the original Bullocks Wilshire menu served in the legendary Tea Room.  All those on our mailing list will receive an invitation to this event.

Note: This event is by mailed invitation only. Invitations to the specific events are sent out a month in advance of the event to the appropriate donor level and will include the ticket price and reservation information.

Event for the General Public: Bullocks Wilshire Open House

This event is generally held the next day following our Summer Day at Bullocks Wilshire event.   Our open house is an excellent opportunity for the public to enjoy the treasures of this historic landmark as our complimentary self-guided tour pamphlet helps you explore the building throughout the day. All those on our mailing list will receive an invitation to this event.
