Members' Day Frequently Asked Questions

What’s on the lunch menu? Does it include vegetarian options?
Yes. Delectable vegetarian options are on the menu including vegetarian baked beans and meatless rigatoni. You can also choose from all-beef hot dogs, smoked sausage and chicken (both smoked using an onsite smoker), potato salad and delicious home baked cookies.

I’d love to bring my young son or daughter. Will you have any activities for children?
Children are encouraged to attend. We’ll make sure to keep them entertained with hands-on encounters with critters, activities, demonstrations and more!

I’d enjoy going on a hike. How difficult are they?
We'll have guided hikes suited for all fitness levels. Our hikes range from rugged trails for the experienced hiker to meandering walks for the casual stroller.

What should I wear to the event?
This is a casual, fun day – no need to dress up! Comfortable clothing and walking shoes are best. A rain jacket and hat are recommended if the weather forecasts a wet day.

Is the event affordable for families?
Members’ Day is a wonderful, affordable outing for families. The cost to attend is free. If you would like to join us for a plentiful lunch buffet it’s $18 per adult and free for children under 10.

I’m traveling from out of town. Where can I stay? And how do you get to Fallingwater?
Fallingwater's website has great information for visitors from all locations. Please visit to learn more.

I’m a member of WPC. Am I permitted to bring a guest?
Yes! We encourage our members to bring guests and appreciate your help in introducing new friends to WPC. Bring as many guests as you like. We simply ask that you RSVP by April 29th.

What happens if it rains?
The Annual Meeting and Members’ Day is rain or shine. But don’t worry! We’ll have plenty of indoor activities if it rains.

Can I purchase the buffet lunch the day of the event?
The buffet lunch is a catered affair, so only a limited number of tickets will be available for purchase at the event. If you’re not sure you want to pack your own picnic, we strongly recommend that you pre-register so you’re not disappointed.

I can only come part of the day. Is that ok?
If you can’t stay the whole day, don’t worry! We’d love to have you for part of the day.

Is the event handicapped-accessible?
Yes. We have both handicapped-accessible parking and facilities.

Can I bring my dog?
Unfortunately, dogs are not permitted on the trails.

Do I need to bring anything special with me, such as my membership card or a confirmation email?
There’s no need to bring anything extra. If you have pre-registered all of the details are taken care of for you.
