Here Are the Things You Want To Do this Weekend in Connecticut: Maple Day, Snow Moon

We’re going to say a sweet (and sticky) farewell to February this weekend. Maple syrup is flowing in Stamford at Maple Sugar Festival Weekends, and in Farmington at Maple Day. Or, families can spend their evenings in nature while taking in the Snow Moon at the Audubon in Fairfield and the Roaring Brook Nature Center. Read on more ideas for making the most of this weekend and the month ahead!

Looking for even more fun? There’s still time to squeeze in that ski lesson, glide down the slopes at one of these snow tubing parks, or try snowshoeing or cross country skiing. Looking to snuggle in and enjoy some at-home fun? There's a Wonderful World of Wizards program, Science Through the Alphabet class for preschoolers, and more on our Poppins@Home pages.

Check out what's open indoors for Connecticut kids right now and our Connecticut events calendar for daily updates on happenings at favorite spots, and more local and virtual opportunities for family fun.

While we are trying to promote safer activities that occur outdoors or with social distancing guidelines in place, please keep your family and others safe by always wearing a mask and maintaining an appropriate distance. If you arrive at an event that appears too crowded, try using the “nearby” search feature on our events calendar to find something else to do. Note new travel restrictions for out-of-state events.
