What’s going on in Woodside?
Woodside’s population is just over 5,000, so it makes sense that you’ll find more residential living here than a long list of attractions and events. But that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to do. In addition to the town’s annual Kings Mountain Art Fair, various other Woodside events are popping up all the time at Filoli, the estate that’s famous for many things including being featured in the TV show Dynasty.
(NOTE: When possible, websites and/or phone numbers are provided for the various events below. If this information isn’t currently available, we’ll post updates in the Communities section of this website with details on event times and locations and other relevant information as it becomes available.)
