Fun and Free Things to Do in Connecticut This Weekend, June 9-10

It's the sweetest time of year in Connecticut: strawberry season! You can celebrate with fruit-filled festivals in South Windsor, Madison, Farmington, and Cheshire...or if you're in more of a DYI frame of mind, peruse our pick-your-own post and head to the fields yourself (as of this writing, Jones Family Farms had opened with Lyman Orchards expected to follow on Friday).

And it's also a great time to show your Nutmeg State pride with CT Open House Day, which offers lots of opportunities to explore destinations near and far for free or at a steep discount, or to revel in region-specific festivals including Celebrate West Hartford, Georgetown Day, or even the Sea Music Festival at Mystic Seaport...I mean, where else but Connecitcut are you likely to find a celebration of sea chanteys?

For even more options, check out our Event Calendar, which is constantly updated with new listings from across the state. To keep up with everything going on in CT, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. Have a fabulous weekend!
