Adirondack A&E e-News # 159

We’re amazed and delighted …

… with this holiday season’s rich and varied offerings of entertainment in our Adirondack arts and entertainment community.

When we started ADK A&E a year ago, we knew that there were plenty of things to do throughout the region, but what we have seen has exceeded our projections and delighted our readers. We’re hearing over and over, “I had no idea there was so much happening around here!” From the visual arts to musical performances to dance, there are innumerable events for all ages and all tastes.

You can check out all the wonderful holiday listings on the ADK A&E website HERE and clicking on “Events” at the upper left. You can select your favorite type of event by using the drop-down box.

Or you can also use the search box to select events, say, on a particular day, by week or month, or even by geographic area. Just click on “Find Events” and sort by the items in the box to the right. Try clicking on “Summary” or “Month” to see how much is going on in our region.

We love to just just browse through the listings by clicking on “List” and scrolling through upcoming events— the variety of offerings is truly amazing!

It’s also the most complete events listing for the ADK region available anywhere.

And, as always, we welcome your feedback—thanks so much!

Merriment and Memories: How We Decorated, Celebrated and Made Moments to Remember

Conversations with the Past, The Chapman Museum
Wednesday, December 14, 2022, 7 pm on ZOOM

Speaker: Jillian Mulder

It’s time to deck the halls, string the lights, and prepare the feasts. Soon, houses and whole streets will be aglow with white and colored-lights. Trees will be brought inside and decorated while wrapped presents are placed beneath them. As you sit by a fire or get cozy with some hot chocolate and warm fuzzy socks, do you reminisce about the celebrations or traditions of years past? Join us as we take a look back at the festivities and events over the last century that have brought us together as a community during this special holiday season.

A confirmation email will follow registration and provide you with the link to join the program. Call (518)793-2826 if you have any questions.

Kick Off the Holiday Season with a Magical Experience

“The world always seems brighter when you’ve just made something that wasn’t there before.”—Neil Gaiman

Let us help you make something that wasn’t there before. We have a full schedule of painting sessions this weekend—even some new additions.

Winter Solstice Lantern Workshop

Thursday, Dec. 15, at 4 pm.

Weaving Home will offer the crafting workshop, which is free and all materials will be provided.

Winter solstice has been celebrated all over the world for thousands of years. It occurs on the shortest day and longest night.

Although this is often the first day of winter, it also promises the return of the sun after an extended period of darkness.

Your lantern can be used to light up the night on Dec. 21, the shortest day of the year. It will be a perfect addition to bring to the Winter Solstice Celebration that will be held locally on the library grounds.

Registration is preferred to assure enough supplies will be on hand. Children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult. To register, call 315 369-6008 or e-mail
