Things to Do This Weekend in Connecticut

April 28th-April 30th, 2017

There’s always something fun to do in Connecticut, and this weekend is no different from the rest.

In the mood for a show? You’ve got quite a few to choose from! The Fray, Steve Winwood, and Sarah Silverman are at Foxwoods Theatre, Flux Pavilion is playing at the Webster Theatre, The Indigo Girls perform at the Ridgefield Playhouse, and Eric Church and Move will both be appearing at Mohegan Sun. Johnny Nicholas will also be performing at The Kate, so be sure to check him out!

If you’ve got a little one tagging along with you this weekend, there’s plenty for you to do to keep them happy and entertained. Take them to the Jorgensen Theatre for a live-action rendition of Shrek for some laughs, or head to the XL Center for one of the final performances of the Circus presented by Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey before they finish touring forever. You can also check out Annie being performed at the Palace Theatre, or head to an Astronomy Day Celebration at New Pond Farm Observatory.

In the mood for something truly different? Check out history in motion by visiting the Battle of Ridgefield Recreation, hosted Saturday and Sunday throughout Ridgefield, or take a stroll in Highlawn Forest to learn about Shinrin-Yoku, the sacred art of “forest bathing.” You can also hop on an Osprey/Eagle Cruise along the Connecticut River or a Marine Life Study Cruise sponsored by the Maritime Aquarium. Beer junkies will love the Thread City Hop Fest going on in Willimantic on Sunday.

There’s also an Exotic Driving Events car show at Mohegan Sun for any gear-heads out there, and the Meriden Daffodil Festival for any flower-lovers. Though the New Haven Cherry Blossom Festival was last weekend, you can always stop by and check out the blossoms in Wooster Square while they’re still there.
