  • The Connecticut Renaissance Faire
    As the drawbridge to The Connecticut Renaissance Faire closes for the evening, the sounds of Halloween laughter can be heard echoing in North Haven. After enjoying a full day of turkey legs and tyrannical kings in a tented marketplace, the festive event transforms into a Halloween haven filled with photo-happy zombies, shopping under the moonlight, games, contests, food, and shows, including the main event: a fire-fueled joust between the headless horseman and his arch enemies.

  • Northampton International Film Festival
    For more than 15 years, the Northampton International Film Festival has been inspiring artistic development in the world's filmmakers, celebrating the art of cinema and the introspection it elicits from audiences. Each year, a panel of industry experts carefully vets thousands of submissions from around the globe, selecting only those films that communicate diverse cultural perspectives through varying visual styles and narrative modes. These documentaries, feature-length films, and shorts seek to build a bridge between seemingly disparate backgrounds and traditions with thought-provoking commentary and enriching stories. This global festival ends with a rousing awards ceremony to honor standout films and snub the assistant key grip's contributions once again, for what must seem like the 8,000,000th time in history.

  • Durham Fair Association [G1]
    When the first Durham Fair was held in 1916, about 2,000 people from the town and other surrounding communities visited the fairgrounds. Last year, visitors from all over the region attended the Durham Fair, which has been voted Best Fair by Connecticut Magazine for its combination of family activities, mouthwatering food, good music, and lack of robot overlords. This year, the agricultural fair features more than 1,000 animals and more than 10,000 exhibits, plus carnival rides and appearances by CMA Award–winner Martina McBride. It also entertains visitors with everything from a demolition derby to a comedic dog show to a wine festival. Though the fair has grown substantially since its early days, it is still run entirely by volunteers. Furthermore, it gives a portion of its profits back to the community via scholarships and the support of numerous local projects and events.
