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.

Due to the Pandemic, we were forced to cancel the 2020 Summer's Day and several Bullocks Wilshire 90th Anniversary events.  Annual Sponsor Level and above memberships made on or after August 3, 2019, will be extended to compensate for this gap once it is safe to be together, and events will be rescheduled if possible.  We wish all of our Friends, and fans, of Bullocks Wilshire good health and happiness. 

There are two ways to receive an invitation to future Summer Day events:

Option #1: Friends of Bullocks Wilshire members who donate at the Sponsor Level or above ($100 minimum contribution) receive invitations by mail and receive early reservation priority. Maximum of four tickets per member.

Option #2: Those on our mailing list who do not choose Option #1 will be able to purchase tickets (maximum of four) after early registration closes. 

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

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. Tickets are $25 each. All those on our mailing list will receive an invitation to this event.
