Shaker Museum

Summer Series 2022


Don’t miss out! Become a sponsor of Shaker Museum’s 2022 Summer Series to support our summer programming and ensure yourself a seat at our garden party on August 6! Kicking off with our Shaker Museum Social at the Columbia County Fairgrounds on Sunday, June 12, the Summer Series offers a lively array of programs, including collections tours and educational and social events for all ages. We will have myriad opportunities to gather again in person, to celebrate friendships and the sense of community that have sustained so many of us through the difficulties of the past two years. In fact, our theme this summer is sustainability, broadly interpreted: the importance and sustainability of our relationships with one another, creating a more sustainable society, and the material sustainability of our planet.

Sponsors will receive free admission to all events for up to ten people, depending on your level of sponsorship, and you will be able to extend your invitation to the museum’s August garden party in Old Chatham, New York on August 6.

  • Sustainers receive free admission for up to 10 for each event
  • Benefactors receive free admission for up to 8 for each event
  • Patrons receive free admission for up to 4 for each event
  • Supporters receive free admission for 2 for each event
  • Friends receive free admission for 1 for each event
