Open Air Market & Festival

August 27, 2017,  10:00am – 4:00pm

 

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 adjacent Snow School and the Mansion**

**A second shuttle will run between Vinal High School and Mercy High School**

 

A complete list of participating vendors can be found below.
