Revels

Held annually, this mid-winter moveable feast is one of our oldest and most loved events. The evening begins with festive drinks and hors d’oeuvres at the Academy, guests then move on to one of more than a dozen intimate dinners hosted by friends of the Academy. It’s the perfect antidote to winter and a great way to support Spencertown Academy Arts Center. More details.
