Back in Time Before '59; Caci Wine Dinner; International Art Exhibit; Botany Walk

The Highlights

Friday September 30 - Sunday October 2

This weekend features many very North Fork events: a classic car show with a history bent; a fabulous food and wine pairing dinner; a dynamic art show; and an exploration of the beautiful landscape. In addition are dozens of music shows, an international art opening and reception, and much more.

Back in Time Before '59 is a classic car show organized by the Cutchogue-New Suffolk Historical Society, and features--in addition to beautiful, old cars--people in costume, music, food & drink. Every year the North Fork offers several classic car shows, but this is the one that focuses on particularly old, classic cars.

Caci North Fork showcases its fantastic food paired with the wonderful wines of Italy's Pio Cesare, hosted by Pio Cesare's assistant winemaker. These winemaker dinners are a terrific way to savor the North Fork's best, and are held in vineyards or at restaurants from time to time.

The Alex Ferrone Gallery opens an international juried Photographic Solarplate Exhibition with a wine and cheese reception, and Hallockville hosts a two hour stroll through its lands, led by an expert in local flora.
