The Gamble House’s Free Family Day Offers Tours, Art and Outdoor Fun – NBC Los Angeles

What there is to know

  • Sunday, Oct. 23 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • Pasadena
  • Half-hour tours created for families (reservations required), art activities, story time

Some of our favorite fairy tales involve enchanted castles, kinds of splendid structures that are full of magical stories, incredible characters, and hopeful messages.

But finding these structures in the modern world? It’s a little more difficult.

True, incredible real-world characters exist in contemporary times, as well as hopeful resolutions, but the turreted castles of yesteryear are a bit more sparse in Southern California.

The gambling house is not a castle, but the famous house in Pasadena is a landmark, one of the most famous craftsman buildings ever built. The eaves-laden icon is full of woodsy details, cozy nooks, and touches straight from nature, and if it’s not straight out of a children’s book, the house certainly looks like a little bit of fun. ‘to have been able to.

To honor its youngest fans and offer families a free day, the prestigious venue is hosting Family Day at The Gamble House Sunday, October 23.

Kid-friendly indoor tours—the 30-minute hikes will be a bit shorter than traditional inside-the-house tours—are on the agenda, but you’ll want to reserve your seats in advance through the site.

The sweetness of story time, cool peeks around the exterior of the beautiful home, and an art event run by the California Art Club are all on Sunday’s delightful schedule.

A carpentry trailer will also be on display, giving kids the chance to make a nameplate with the help of an artist.

And the snacks? Always as important, to keep this energy: they will be for sale on the ground.

The Gamble House isn’t just for adults, of course, but a day created for the youngest, including children who enjoy reading about enchanting houses, looks like the perfect event for an autumn Sunday.

That the day is also free, a gift to local families, only adds to the air of enchantment.
