Open Air Market & Festival

The historic Mansion will transform its 700 foot vista into a marketplace and festival where a variety of vendors will gather to sell their Connecticut grown or made products. One can stroll from tent to tent purchasing fresh produce, fruit, cheese, breads and prepared foods. Local artisans such as potters, painters and jewelers have been invited to sell their work. Visitors will be encouraged to lounge on the lawn with lunch and listen to live music performed on the patio. Families can bring their children and spend the day. It will be a day to discover the Wadsworth Mansion, enjoy music and art, and experience the tradition of shopping at an open-air market.

Parking will be at Wilbert Snow School, Mercy High School, and Vinal High School. The most convenient parking is at Mercy High School.  Mansion parking is reserved for handicap and families with strollers only.

**A shuttle will run between Snow School and the Mansion and Vinal High School and Mercy High School**

Please note: all vendor slots to this year’s market have been filled. We will not be accepting any new vendors at this time.
