Looking for the perfect way to start the summer off with a bang? Perhaps an evening spent under the stars, sipping cocktails and tasting the finest farm-to-table fare the area has to offer, surrounded by both works of art and the beauty of the Hudson Valley will put you in the right frame of mind for the season. Luckily, Storm King Art Center is offering this exact scenario on Saturday, June 18th at their annual Summer Solstice Celebration.
The event begins at 5pm with a cocktail reception including hors d’oeuvres and the chance to explore the special outdoor exhibits and the Museum Galleries, or Storm King’s South Fields via tram. Dinner in the Fields will be served at 7:30pm and will feature a menu designed by chef Amanda Freitag, co-star of Food Network’s ‘Chopped’ and co-host of ‘American Diner Revival’. Freitag will be collaborating with chef Shelley Boris, of Fresh Company in Garrison, New York. The musical stylings of the Distractions Band will provide the after-dinner soundtrack to the festivities.
Proceeds from the event go toward Storm King’s exhibitions and programs. For more information, visit www.stormkingsummersolstice.org or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
