Looking for something to do on Friday night?

You can sit on a blanket, sharing blueberries and farm cheese, and talk with a friend while you’re waiting for a new play to begin in the fields under the maple trees. You can dance to live bluegrass and African blues.

This is a rich place, even in deep winter. I’ve lived here 20 years, and I find new places and people every day. Doors are open when you know where to look.

You’ll find stories and events calendar here — and searchable lists of restaurants and cafés, theaters and performance spaces, art museums, hiking trails and more. Beyond them, you can connect with this place in many ways.

Acclaimed folk musician Tracy Grammer will perform at Spencertown Academy.
