Village Fair Days in New Milford CT, 2009, a fun weekend for all!

July 20, 2009

Bandstand CC New Milford Connecticut Village Fair Days will be held Friday and Saturday, July 24th and July 25th. Since 1967 Village Fair Days have been held in New Milford Connecticut, this year is Village Fair Days number 42! I have been going for 30 years now and loving every year. It is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a slice of Americana!

Village Fair Days are sponsored by the Greater New  Milford Chamber of Commerce, and held on our picturesque and historic Village Green. The electrical boxes are up, the wires are coiled along the green in anticipation of the upcoming event. In a matter of a few days the tents will go up, activity around the green will rise until the the fair begins on Friday. It is truly a fun event, there are so many things to see, to buy, to EAT, I just love it! Local business, organizations and clubs will show you what they are doing at the south end of the green. Food tents with enough variety to please even the toughest critic will be in the center of the green, and the artisans and craftsman will sell their wares at the north end of the green.

The Greater New Milford Board of Realtors® will have a booth again this year. We are all taking turns manning the booth. Last year I was there quite a bit and met so many wonderful people, I really had a great time! I hope that you will take a moment and stop by our booth to say hello.

And let’s not forget the New Milford Idol finals! Friday night, July 24th from 7 – 10 pm semi-finals and finals will be held under the tent. Our latest NEW MILFORD IDOL will be chosen! Here is a list of the semi-finalists, Beth Conkey, Chris DiFabbio, Jannette Dubray, Kari Frawley, Meghan Henriques, Denise Howard, Jenn Kopec, John Mackiewicz, Mollie McDonald, Karen Pavlik, Tom Powell, Tom Rapela, Josh Susco and Curtis Thompson. Well done to all of you and good luck!

I hope to see you there on Friday and Saturday, July 24th and 25th on the Village Green in New Milford Connecticut for our 42nd annual Village Fair Days. A big thank you to all the volunteers who make this event possible, to all the vendors, the groups who work tirelessly to provide the food, the fun and the cleanup after.
