Putnam County's SPACE on Ryder Farm has announced its list of 2018 events.

SPACE on Ryder Farm's Seasonal Supper series will run throughout June, July, and August, pairing performances from the organization's artists with farm-to-table menus prepared by innovative chefs from New York City and the Hudson Valley. The first supper will take place on June 23, with performances by Celisse Henderson and a menu created by chef Rebecca Newman.

Seasonal performances will include Cultural Arts Coalition's Concerts Around the Corner ensemble (July 28) and Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival's production of The Sea-Maid's Music (August 12).

On September 15, SPACE will host a Roving Dinner, an eight-course meal paired with excerpts of eight new plays and musicals developed by SPACE's Working Farm group of writers. The 2018 writers are Ngozi Anyanwu, Will Arbery, Donnetta Lavinia Grays, Dave Harris, A. Rey Pamatmat, Michael Thurber, Anne Washburn, and Stefanie Zadravec, with resident chefs Brendan Spieth and Kate Eminger preparing meals.
