BALLSTON SPA — To follow-up Brookside Museum’s grand reopening, the Saratoga County History Center is staging a slate of summer events, offerings, and activities in July and August. 

Sounds of Summer from the Brookside Porch

Instrumentalists from the American Federation of Musicians perform 3 p.m. July 18 and 3 p.m. July 25 at Brookside Museum. Performers include members of the Albany Symphony Orchestra, playing popular melodies on Brookside’s grand front porch while guests relax on the spacious front lawn. Students and representatives from the Dance Factory of Saratoga Springs will be on hand on July 25 to teach audience members a few basic steps and, perhaps, even put on a show.  Both concerts are free and open to the public. Guests should bring their own lawn chairs or picnic blankets.

Experts Next Door

The virtual speaker series will continue to bring top scholars, authors, and thinkers into homes through Zoom. July’s installment features Dr. Mindy Pitre, Associate Professor of Anthropology, and Dr. J. Amsil Ramsay, Professor of Public Health, at St. Lawrence University, NY talking about bio-archaeological discoveries in the Aswan-Kom Ombo Archaeological Project in Aswan, Egypt.  August will introduce guests to Sara Evenson, a practitioner of early colonial cooking. Evenson will explore a single family through their legacy of recipes and provide cooking demonstrations along the way.

BSBPA Farmer’s Market

The Ballston Spa Business and Professional Association’s weekly farmer’s market runs to Sept. 30, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Thursdays and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays.  The gathering of artisans and farmers will offer 100% locally grown produce, farm fresh agricultural products, baked treats, and hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind gifts and goods.

Brookside Museum is open 1 to 5 p.m. Thursday to Sunday, and during the Thursday and Saturday Farmers’ Markets. Donations are appreciated. For more information, go to:
