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 Lisa Ferraro and Roger Humphries 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.
