Father's Day Weekend Things to Do in Connecticut: Strawberry Festivals, Juneteenth, Shakespeare

This Father’s Day Weekend ushers in the official start of summer with Juneteenth celebrations, strawberry fun, and tons of fun ways to say “we love you dad!” Enjoy local artists and baked goods at the Annual Monroe Strawberry Festival, hit the water at NESS Fest, or take dad on a fun run in Norwalk.  Make sure to check out even more family adventures to take dad on in 10 Things To Do with Dad

This weekend also welcomes the return of Shakespeare on the Sound in Norwalk. Pack a pin-nic and head to Pinkney Park to enjoy a full stage production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.  As always, keep tabs on our Connecticut events calendar for daily updates on happenings at favorite spots, and more local and virtual opportunities for family fun.
