Frank Lloyd Wright 150th Birthday Celebration Picnic Series & More
Celebrate world-renowned American architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s 150th birthday at the only Frank Lloyd Wright house open to visitors in the D.C. region!—the Pope-Leighey House. Located just 10 miles from Old Town Alexandria, the Pope-Leighey House is the perfect showcase of one of Wright’s “Usonian” style modest homes that he began designing in the 1930s. Visitors are invited to enjoy celebrating the anniversary all year long. First up, on the birthday itself, June 8, the site will be hosting Cupcake tours during the day, and a very special The 150th Birthday Picnic & Party fundraiser in the evening, to include birthday cake from some of the region’s best cake makers, cocktails, music, a unique auction and much more. On July 12, the hilarious cocktail theater troupe, Picnic Theater Company, will be presenting their version of Noel Coward’s Hay Fever in front of the house (picnic dinner available) and on August 27th, the Pope-Leighey Picnic series ends with a mid-century modern, family-style Back-to-School picnic (Loren Pope was an education reporter and author) on the grounds of the house. Look out for other events all year, including in-depth architectural tours, Twilight & Tipple Tours with beverages and bites, and a slew of exciting partner events throughout.
