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.

Get into the Halloween spirit by joining us for this spooktacular celebration, NCNC-style. We’ll learn about and meet some creepy critters who remind us of All Hallows Eve (spiders, bats, snakes, & more), before getting the chance to make our very own slime. We’ll wrap up the evening by enjoying a spooky & interactive Halloween story and a one-of-a-kind jack-o-lantern experience.
3rd Annual Jack-o-Lantern Carving Contest: Carve a pumpkin at home with your family and bring it in to the NCNC Visitor Center on Wednesday, October 24, or Thursday, October 25, any time from 9am-3pm. Each pumpkin must be accompanied by a registration form (see below or pick up a copy in our Visitor Center beginning in September).
Leave it to our naturalists to set the scene and then join us for the grand finale of our Halloween Spooktacular as we take a daring walk through the woods to visit your creepy creations. At the end of this spooky stroll, each Spooktacular participant will get the chance to vote for their favorite Jack-o-Lantern. 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes will be awarded and announced via email the following week.
Costumes encouraged & welcome!
This is not a drop off program – all children must be accompanied by an adult.
Spaces for this popular event are limited & advanced registration is highly recommended!
