15th Anniversary Picnic at the Farnsworth House
Join us for our 15th anniversary celebration!  Our first event was a trip to the Farnsworth House on June 27, 2004. It seems fitting to revisit this Midcentury icon, the most famous home designed by Mies van der Rohe. We have been invited by the current director, Scott Mehaffey, to celebrate in style with a Midcentury inspired, old fashioned picnic, after taking a guided tour of the house, visitors center, and grounds. We'll also view the current photography and furniture exhibit on Florence Knoll. Our tour will be exclusively for CBB members. The ticket price covers the tour and a BBQ picnic featuring catering from Calico Cafe. We'll have chicken, pulled pork, and delicious sides.

SCHEDULE: We will gather at 4:00 p.m. at the visitors center, see the Knoll exhibit and a short film about Farnsworth. We will also hold a short annual meeting. At 4:30, as a group, we will then walk down to the house - 1/2 mile.  (comfortable walking shoes are a must) where we will have a 1 hour docent-led tour of the house and grounds. We will then walk back and enjoy our catered picnic outdoors in this beautiful setting.  

This event must be capped at 60 people, so be sure to reserve your space ASAP!
