Neptune Pool at Hearst Castle Grand Reopening


A Sunset Soiree and Swim will be held on Sunday, October 21st to celebrate the reopening of the Neptune Pool.

With the completion of the most extensive restoration project in Hearst Castle history, water in the famed Neptune Pool reflects its Greco-Roman flourishes and dramatic sunsets once again.

What better way to celebrate the grand reopening of the nearly 90-year-old Julia Morgan-designed pool than to invite guests for a lavish ocean-view cocktail party and a coveted swim! A ticket to this once-in-a-lifetime event helps to continue vital preservation efforts, ensuring Hearst Castle remains a world-class monument and museum that inspires the next generation of architects, engineers, artists, and dreamers.

Celebrate in Style
Begin with a ride up the iconic road leading to the Enchanted Hill to witness the official reopening of Hearst Castle's Neptune Pool. Guests may opt for a 45-mintue viewing of the digitally-remastered film, "Building the Dream," in Hearst Castle's five-story IMAX theatre first.

Join California state dignitaries and celebrities strolling spectacular surrounding terraces while relishing in a fabulous selection of hors d'oeuvres, hand-crafted cocktails, and the Central Coast's finest wines.

Following a toast, savor the awe-inspiring setting on this special occasion, featuring Jazz to Big Band music, and a unique entertainment finale performed right in the Neptune Pool as the sun sets into the Pacific Ocean.
