What is the Connecticut Weekender?
The Connecticut Weekender is a website/blog dedicated to giving Connecticut residents and visitors ideas of things to see and do across the state. Every week we’ll provide you with new event listings spanning everything from festivals, carnivals, concerts, art exhibits, lectures, cultural events, fundraisers, social gatherings and more.
In addition to event listings, we’ll provide you with ideas of things you can do any time, such as hiking the Appalachian Trail, taking sailing lessons, or visiting one of Connecticut’s vineyards.
How can you contribute?
We encourage our readers to contribute ideas by leaving comments, sending an email, or even by becoming a guest author. Tell your friends, follow us on Twitter, add us on Facebook, link to us, and help spread the word. The more people participating the better this website will become.
Become a Town Ambassador
Have pride in the town you live in? We’d like to give you the opportunity to write about it and let people know about all of the hidden secrets it has to offer. Whether it be a local hiking trail, an antique store, or a cafe you like to hang out at, you can help spread the word by becoming your town’s ambassador for the Connecticut Weekender. To sign up, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll fill you in on the details.

Bio: I started the Connecticut Weekender in 2008 as a way to spotlight all of the great things that Connecticut has to offer, and to inspire people to go out and explore. We’re so used to seeing the dreary sights of the daily commute like I-95 or Metro North, that we forget Connecticut can be quite scenic, rural, and interesting once you step off the beaten path. By sharing my experiences I hope you’ll feel inspired to go check them out for yourself, or find new things on your own.
