Don’t miss the Woodstock Cabaret & Fashion Show…the event everyone was talking about is back!
May 4, 2019 marks the eighth annual fashion show at the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild, welcoming spring to the Byrdcliffe Art Colony with an explosive evening of music, art, performance, and fabulous fashion. The Cabaret & Fashion Show is a benefit focusing on Byrdcliffe’s Artist-in-Residence Program, which provides an opportunity for visual artists, writers, and composers to work in the creative solitude of a historic art colony.
The 2019 Cabaret & Fashion show will take place on Saturday, May 4, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at the Byrdcliffe Barn, 485 Upper Byrdcliffe Road in Woodstock. The event represents a new level of fun and playfulness at the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild; it is bawdy, sexy, and joyful, hosted for its second year by Chris Wells, the Obie award-winning writer, actor and community leader, as well as the founding artistic director of the much-lauded “art church,” The Secret City. The Byrdcliffe Cabaret & Fashion Show will star many of our talented local performers as well as some delightful newcomers to swish and shimmy their way down the catwalk. The evening will begin with a cocktail hour including a delicious assortment of food, prosecco, and wines donated by local restaurants and merchants. There will be a unique offering of silent auction items as well.
Byrdcliffe’s historic Barn was built in 1902 as part of the utopian art colony envisioned by Byrdcliffe’s founders Ralph and Jane Whitehead. The well-dressed Whiteheads—themselves exemplars of how a country setting and high style are not mutually exclusive—will attend in spirit as the Barn lights up with new fashions, models, and auction items, all with the power to make Woodstock and beyond a bit more glamorous.
The evening is sponsored by: Linda and Bruce Bodner, Henry T. Ford and Michael G. Knauth, Frances Halsband, Catherine McNeal, Abigail Sturges and G. Daniel Perry, Wapner Koplovitz & Futerfas, PLLC; Cucina, Stewart’s Shops, Marigold Home, Anonymous, Kerrie and Oscar Buitrago, Herbert and Sharon Burklund, Benjamin Prosky and Jozef Sulik, Sapirstein & Sapirstein P.C., Linda and Michael Valenti.
