The Connecticut State Tourism Office recently asked me to be part of their "Street Team" and participate in Open House Day on Saturday, June 8th.

The good news?  You can take advantage of this great Open House Day, right along with me!

June 8th is Connecticut Open House Day!

Many of the cities and town museums, cafes, restaurants, parks, art spaces, and loads of places across the great state of Connecticut will be throwing open their doors to welcome all of us inside!

Most are offering deeply discounted admittance - and others are entirely free!

Since I'll be in Fairfield county for another event in the afternoon, I'll be visiting:

Also offering complimentary cookies. Sweet and Simple is located at 75 Hillside Rd. Fairfield, CT (203) 292-8992. 

Meet Michelle, the owner of Sweet & Simple

and I'll also spend time at

Bellarmine Museum of Art:  Free family day activities from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. Museum will be open from noon until 5 p.m. The museum is located at Fairfield University 1073 North Benson Rd. Fairfield, CT (203) 254-4046

  1. Bonnie, I love reading your posts. You always make me feel like I was there or like I SHOULD have been there! I hope we get to meet up this Open House Day but if not, I'll know where I can read all about it!

    1. thanks Joe! Hope I see you at one of these places...or at the afternoon event. This was the first year that I heard about Open House Day...and I'm hoping that the participating organizations have a record turn out!

  2. A great idea-looks like a little something for everyone. This is the first I'd heard of a CT Open House Day. Thanks for passing the info along!

    1. You are welcome! So many places I would love to go! Wish it was the entire weekend!

  3. I can't wait for this on Saturday!!! I looked at the list today for the first time and it's extensive. They need an open house WEEKEND. I added a button to my sidebar so that interested parties could get the information on the properties from their site. I think in addition to some more tweeting, I will do a post as well.

    1. I agree! So many places - so little time! Looking forward to seeing you this weekend, as well!

  4. I'm still deciding between the events over in Eastern CT - I'm thinking either the Rodeledge Inn tea or the Farmer's Cow farm tour.

    1. Both sound great! So many places, so little time! oh how I wish it was the whole weekend!
