Annual Summer Gala

The 2016 Annual Summer Gala
Friday, July 15, 2016 • 6:30 pm • At The Farmers' Museum

Come take a spin at Carousel! The Gala

On Friday, July 15, 2016, the Fenimore Art Museum and The Farmers’ Museum will once again present our annual summer gala. This year, the event will be held at The Farmers’ Museum, celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Empire State Carousel. The gala will highlight our one-of-a-kind carousel and will include classic food & drinks from the regions of New York State, amazing entertainment, dancing, carousel rides, and so much more!  The event also features an exclusive silent auction with one-of-a-kind packages available only at our gala.

Each year, the event supports educational programming at Fenimore Art Museum and The Farmers’ Museum. The funding from this event gives children of all ages a hands-on opportunity to experience art and history in new and exciting ways. In 2015, over 8,000 children participated in school programs at the museums, thanks, in part, to funding from our gala guests.
