Best Things To Do in Connecticut in November with Kids

November kicks off the holiday season, so we've rounded up the best fall and festive events for Connecticut kids this month. High on our list is The Stamford Downtown Parade Spectacular, a re-envisioned parade-like event, complete with a marching band and giant helium balloons. It's a park party for the entire family to enjoy. With thousands in attendance each year, it's a special Connecticut event that gets everyone in the holiday spirit. There's also great nature programs, holiday and Christmas shows, and a kid-friendly road race to work off all those mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie.

The fall weather also brings Go to an Art Museum Day and National Take a Hike Day, so it's an ideal time to enjoy a preschooler-friendly hike, visit a Connecticut state park with the whole family, or take in a musem free for kids for some art and history. For more fall activities, explore our list of 50 things to do in Connecticut or our Fall Fun Guide for Connecticut Kids.

We’re adding more events to our family activity calendar every day, so don’t forget to check it frequently.
