In keeping with the Chamber’s mission of “Connecting The Community With Commerce” this Calendar was created to allow member businesses and New Canaan based non-profits to promote their upcoming events to the public. The Community Calendar is a local resource for all residents and visitors and has quickly become one of the most visited pages on the site. Events can be submitted via the link below and will be reviewed and posted within 24-48 hours.

Valentine’s Day is almost here, and kids can celebrate the holiday by participating in New Canaan Library’s popular Teddy Bear Sleepover. The Library invites children and their parents/caregivers to join in on the fun when it presents its 5th annual Teddy Bear Sleepover fundraiser, Friday night, February 9, 2018. The fee to register is $25 per bear, with all proceeds benefitting the Library’s Children’s Room. Please register online at newcanaanlibrary.org/teddybear.
The event begins Friday afternoon with a 3 – 5 p.m. drop off of a child’s favorite bear or stuffed animal. When the Library closes at 5 p.m. hidden cameras will record the teddies’ overnight antics. Will they sleep at all? Will the Library survive their mischief? Will they fall in love?
On Saturday morning children and their parents/caregivers can rejoin their stuffed friends at 9:30 AM in the Library and enjoy a delicious breakfast, generously provided by Toddlertime Nursery School. To add to the fun, participants will see the video of what those teddies were up to during their slumber party. For questions or information please contact Krista B. Cody; firstname.lastname@example.org.
