Building Community Through the Arts

Events Overview

Current and Upcoming Events

Our signature annual events are held each year to raise vital funds for the Academy’s program and operating budgets. The events are organized and staffed primarily by volunteers.


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, with guests moving on to 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.

We are excited to welcome you to this festive event on Saturday, February 11, 2023. Tickets are now available.

Hidden Gardens

Hidden Gardens is one of three major annual fundraising events the Academy hosts in June, serving as a kick-off to the joys of this bountiful season. Events include Twilight in the Garden Cocktail Party, The Hidden Garden Tour- a self guided garden tours of fabulous and varied private gardens and Market on the Green featuring vendors with garden related products and beyond. 2023 schedule to be announced soon.

Festival of Books

This beloved annual fundraiser is back on the calendar again for Labor Day Weekend 2023. This past year’s festival was our most successful yet. We look forward to once again providing a vast array of books, all gently used and affordable, hosting distinguished authors and providing our famous no-alarm vegetarian chili at the Cookbook Café. Stay tuned for further information, as our program develops.
