Taliesin, the 800-acre homestead of architect Frank Lloyd Wright, opened its doors to families and architecture enthusiasts for a day of exploration during the annual event, “A Day at Taliesin.” Set against the backdrop of the vibrant hues of the harvest season, this event provided a unique opportunity for visitors to immerse themselves in Wright’s Wisconsin estate.

Families roamed the estate, participating in a lively scavenger hunt, while marveling at the architectural wonders around them. The day boasted a diverse range of activities, from self-guided tours to engaging experiences tailored for young ones. The festivities kicked off at the Riverview Terrace, a space conceived by Wright as the gateway to Taliesin. From there, guests proceeded to the Hillside Studio and Theatre area of the estate.

Exclusive tours of the interior of Hillside Theatre unveiled years of meticulous restoration work completed in collaboration with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. Additionally, Driftless Landscape Tours offered a captivating insight into the natural wonders that inspired Wright, guiding participants on a 1-mile journey across the estate’s scenic terrain.

The day unfolded with even more delights: a book signing session with Kristine Hansen, the author of “Frank Lloyd Wright’s Wisconsin,” delicious food prepared by Chef’s Hideout, performances by the Wisconsin Youth Symphony Orchestra, and a tightrope walk by Wild Rumpus Circus.

Partner organizations, including Friends of the Lower Wisconsin Riverway, Savannah Institute, and Driftless Area Land Conservancy, were on site to showcase their dedication to preserving the surrounding landscape.

This event would not have been possible without the generous support of sponsors Cardinal Glass, Jewell Associate Engineers, the Green Bay Packers Foundation, and the volunteers who made this day a success.
