As far as states go, Connecticut is pretty small.  But when you look at the list of fall festivals in Connecticut in September and October, you would think that Connecticut is a much larger state.  If you find yourself in New England in the fall, Connecticut wouldn’t be a bad place to celebrate the harvest or Oktoberfest.

  1. Please advise if any farms or pumpkin patches will come to an off-site location for a school event.
    We are hosting our Homecoming festivities on Oct. 19, 2013 in Hamden, CT.

    Thank you. Robyn

    Ridgefield’s 1st Annual Giant Pumpkin Weigh Off (Ballard Park, Ridgefield, CT) is on Sunday, Sept 29, 2013 from 10am – 3pm. Large Pumpkin growers from the region will come together for a cash prize competition for the heaviest pumpkin, squash and longest gourd. Vendor booths will be themed to support the economy associated with this “harvest season”. Enjoy musical entertainment and a giant pumpkin professional carving demonstration at this great fall event! Free to the public.
