Special Events at Hearst Castle

Time your visit to catch one of Hearst Castle’s special events, and you’ll definitely have plenty to post and tweet. Though tours offered seven days a week year-round are outstanding, these coveted events feel as exclusive as they are, so try to nab a spot as soon as you can nail down your travel dates—or make them to jibe with a particularly amazing event. Choose from the annual, black tie Holiday Feast—an opulent five-course meal, served in the lavishly decorated grand dining room. Or dress up for Twilight on the Terrace, a summertime event to watch the sunset while enjoying local delicacies prepared by the region’s top chefs, paired with local wines and artisanal beers. There’s live jazz and dancing, too. Also on tap throughout the year: special lectures and movie nights in an unforgettable setting.
