The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy is now accepting reservations for the annual Fallingwater Twilight Tour and Picnic Dinner. The event will be held on Saturday, August 26 at the world-renowned Frank Lloyd Wright house near Mill Run, Pa.
The Twilight Tour provides guests a unique opportunity to experience Fallingwater as the sun sets over the ridges of the Laurel Highlands. Guests will enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres on the bridge outside the house and a leisurely, self-guided tour of the house. At twilight, a lantern-lit path will lead guests to a meadow, where they will enjoy live jazz featuring Dane Vannatter (vocals), Max Leake (piano), Sam Harris (bass), David Glover (drums), Mike Tomaro (sax) while dining on a gourmet picnic dinner prepared by Fallingwater’s chef.
The Twilight Tour begins at 6:30 p.m. and the picnic and jazz performance starts at 8 p.m.
Tickets are available by advance purchase only and are tax-deductible. Western Pennsylvania Conservancy and Friends of Fallingwater members must make reservations via phone.
Proceeds from the event support the ongoing preservation of Fallingwater, one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most acclaimed works and “One of 12 landmarks that will change the way you see the world,” according to Travel + Leisure magazine.
Tickets may be purchased by calling Fallingwater at 724-329-8501 or by visiting https://tickets.fallingwater.org.
