Best Things To Do in Connecticut in June with Kids

With school winding down and camps just getting started, June really is the perfect month to devote to family fun. It's the Connecticut Open House on June 12, so consider checking out one of the free activities in every corner of the state. 

Highlights this month include lots of festivals, the return of Shakespeare on the Sound, the opening of a new exhibit at the Maritime Aquarium, and the South Windsor Strawberry Festival. Of course, our Summer Fun Guide and events calendar are chock-full of more ideas, but if we had to choose our very favorite June activities, these picks are at the top of the list. Have fun out there!

Editor's note: Some events and operating hours could change, depending on COVID-19 status. Check with businesses before heading out to events. Please keep your family and others safe by wearing masks and social distancing. If an event appears too crowded, try using the “nearby” search feature on our event calendar to find something else to do.
