Labor Day Weekend in Connecticut

by | Aug 31, 2019 | Activities, food, Parenting, School | 0 comments

Labor Day weekend usually marks the end of summer and is a great opportunity for families to get together before the school year begins. Some families head to the beach one last time, some keep it simple with backyard barbecues, others even take their last vacation for the year. If you are staying in Connecticut for Labor Day this year don’t worry, there is plenty to do!

Below are a few events happening in Connecticut to kick off one of our favorite holidays.

Goshen Fair

Goshen, Connecticut

A great country fair with loads of animals, food, entertainment, and rides. Enjoy this Litchfield County Labor Day tradition that features fireworks, pie eating contests, a draft horse show, and a lumber jack contest. This year the 107th Goshen Fair features the James Montgomery Blues Bans with special guest Christine Ohlman.

Lyman Orchards’ Corn Maze

Middlefield, Connecticut

Who doesn’t love a corn maze? It reminds me that fall is coming – and it’s a lot of fun too! Take the checkered flag at Lyman Orchards’ corn maze with this year’s theme of NASCAR champ Joey Lagano and his #22 car. This year’s maze is four acres of towering corn and two miles of pathways, so there is plenty of ground to cover. Don’t worry about getting lost, there will be Corn Cops to help guide families through.

Woodstock Fair

Woodstock, Connecticut

It’s a Labor Day tradition in Connecticut: the Woodstock Fairgrounds! There will be a battle of the bands, contests, and more. Enjoy agricultural exhibits (including a birthing center where you can view a cow birth a calf right before your eyes!), animal and farm equipment, food, and of course carnival rides. 

Blues & Views Festival
