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.

Fill your summer with adventure and discovery by becoming a Backyard Explorer! Children and parents are invited to experience the wonder of the natural world through hands-on encounters with native wildlife and wilderness skills demonstrations. Inspire your children to get their hands dirty and reconnect with the outdoors.
During self-guided tours along Grace Farms’ walking trails, children and their parents will stumble upon three “Discovery Stations” featuring new animals and wilderness skills each week. Children will learn about raptors, reptiles, amphibians, wildlife tracking, wilderness shelters, and more.
Please come prepared for hiking with long pants and appropriate closed-toe footwear. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
With 80 acres of expansive open space to explore, Grace Farms is dedicated to inspiring a connection between our community and the great outdoors. Enjoy our Earth Day video to learn more about our Nature Initiative!
