Things to Do This Weekend in Connecticut

September 29th-October 1, 2017

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

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. Bring them down to The CT Renaissance Faire for the last Renaissance fair of the season, or head to the Florence Griswold Museum for their Wee Fairy Village. Got older kids? If they’re up for a Halloween scare, bring them to The Haunted Graveyard at Lake Compounce and bond over screams.

In the mood for a show? You’ve got quite a few to choose from! The Script and Luis Fonsi are both performing at Foxwoods, Halsey and Tony Bennett are at Mohegan Sun, Nick DiPaolo and Larry Gatlin are at the Ridgefield Playhouse, The Growlers have a show at College Street Music Hall, and The Book of Mormon is being performed at the Shubert Theatre.

Want to do something truly different? Head to Chowdafest in Westport and try the many different kinds of clam chowder that CT loves. Or head out on a Swallow Sunset Cruise with the Essex Steam Train & Riverboat, or one of the many cruises offered by the Maritime Aquarium, including TGIF Cruises, Marine Life Encounter Cruises, and Sunset Cruises.

Check out the calendar below to see the full list of fun events happening in Connecticut this weekend and month.
