A Night Out on the Town!


The Taste of the Town Stroll is an eating-drinking-shopping-fundraising extravaganza that happens all across New Canaan. Businesses around New Canaan annually open their doors one night to people looking for a tasty snack, a beverage, and a bargain. What’s the price of participation at over 25+ stores? A donation of canned foods to the New Canaan Food Pantry.

Take advantage of the deals, snacks and drinks, and while you’re at it make a difference in someone’s life. The New Canaan Food Pantry services residents of New Canaan in need of assistance.

Starting at 9pm, the New Canaan Chamber of Commerce will conduct a live drawing for the over 20 prizes listed to the right. You do not have to be present to win but please make sure your contact information is printed clearly so we can reach you if you win!
