Guests at Twilight on the Terrace, strolled the Castle’s picturesque terraces, while sipping and savoring food and wine from some of the Central Coast’s finest purveyors. Those at the hilltop experienced a brush with history. Created during a two-day paint-out at the Castle, our California plein air artists showcased works of art that captured the Castle and surrounding vistas in a premier art exhibit and sale.

Bring the magic of the Castle home by purchasing the works of recognized and respected artists! A percentage from the sale of the art benefits Friends of Hearst Castle’s ArtReach program for underserved youth at-risk. View our photo of Galleries;
