Annual Spring Gala
The Spring Gala is an evening filled with live music, contra dancing with caller, dinner, drinks and a silent auction — all included in one ticket price. It’s a wonderful way to connect with parents, faculty, staff and friends of the school. For three weeks leading up to the Gala we have an online auction which includes over 100 items and experiences to bid on. All proceeds from the Spring Gala and online auction go toward a specific initiative which is decided upon and announced to the community before the event, each year.

Annual Music in the Field
Music in the Field is a day filled with live music and much more at the Field of Dreams Pavilion in New Paltz. Families bring their own food, or buy food from vendors on-site, and eat picnic-style on blankets and lawn chairs. It is an opportunity to kick back and enjoy the sounds of traditional bluegrass music and New Orleans-style brass music (musical acts change each year so check back for more details closer to event date).
In addition to the music and food, there is face painting for the young children, henna art for the teens and plenty of safe, green space for to run around. Wild Earth is on-site with a tent and space to guide kids in games and crafts during the event. Each year we work to build on the success of the previous year in order to make this event a must-see not only for the Mountain Laurel community but also the greater community and beyond.
The proceeds raised from this event go directly into the operating expenses for Mountain Laurel Waldorf School and a portion of the proceeds is gifted to Hasbrouck Park. Most Mountain Laurel students spend part of their school day at Hasbrouck Park and this gift toward renovations and upkeep is our way of saying. Thank You!
