Pope-Leighey House

On Thursday, June 8, fans across the world will be celebrating Frank Lloyd Wright’s 150th Birthday! Come to the Pope-Leighey House, in Alexandria, VA, to celebrate with us in mid-century style!

The iconic architect of our perfect little Usonian-style home really enjoyed a great picnic. Join us for an evening of al fresco fun on the grounds of his Pope-Leighey House.

YOU bring the picnic, blanket or chairs and some serious mid-century style!

We will be giving out prizes for the best 1930’s-1940’s picnic vignette. That means you should pull out your best frock, a fedora and the finger sandwiches. We want to see whatever inspires you about our Pope-Leighey House and/or Mr. Frank Lloyd Wright.

Signature “Cantilever Cocktail” by Bar RO’D . Birthday cake by some very creative area bakers & dessert from Rouge Fine Catering. The music of Swing band Craig Gilmer & The Blue Sky 5. There will be twilight tours of the house, of course. And an auction of picnics and other surprises inspired by our house!
