What’s Coming Up on the North Fork
August 27-30th & September 4-7th: Tour the North Fork Designer Show House
The twelve room, 1835 manse of Cutchogue Presbyterian has been redecorated by fabulous designers, so that you may tour it and support local charities in the process. This third show is the best in the series because the next door neighbor, Jessica Lee, has allowed the redecorating-for-charity festival to expand into her large red 19th century barn, charming covered outdoor seating area and primitive potting shed. The large garden in back of the house, connecting to the Lee residence, features over-the-top decorative vignettes. Beneficiaries include CAST, Maureen’s Haven and The North Fork Animal Welfare League. Plus, the organizers will be working with local high schools to establish a scholarship. 11 am – 5 pm.
August 29: Horton’s Point Lighthouse Concert, Nina Et Cetera
The Horton’s Point Lighthouse is one of the Southold Historical Society’s treasures, and the annual concerts on the grounds are a particular treat. The third and final concert of the season features Nina Et Cetera. Depending on the day, “Nina Et cetera is a duo, trio, or a quartet, any of which may be an acoustic whisper or an electric roar.” 6 pm.
