From Mother's Day to Memorial Day, we'll be finding fun things to do all month long—May the 4th be with you!

May is really the first month where the outdoors can become the central focus of family life and entertainment in Connecticut. It's also the month to show moms how much they're appreciated and enjoy the extended Memorial Day weekend. Everyone is raring to get outside, so fill your calendar up with flower festivals like the Daffodil Festival, Dancing Daffodils, and the annual Dogwood Festival.

Find more top May fun on our Spring Bucket List and our rundown of the best Spring Festivals and Fairs in Connecticut for Kids and Families. Don't forget to bookmark our Spring Fun Guide for family activity ideas throughout this gorgeous season in Connecticut. 

We’re adding more events to our family activity calendar every day, so don’t forget to check it frequently. Get our picks for every weekend in your inbox—sign up for our newsletters.
