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.

May Fair runs with its full array of rides, games, entertainment, and White Elephant and book sales on Saturday. The enormous May Fair White Elephant Tag Sale features thousands of items for sale including jewelry, furniture, rugs, china, crystal, art, collectibles, lamps, kitchenware, linens, electronics, toys, games, sporting goods, and lawn furniture. Delicious foods will be available for purchase including grilled chicken, smoked brisket, pulled pork, corn on the cob, hotdogs and hamburgers, pizza, ice cream, and many other treats including May Fair’s famous strawberry shortcake. St. Mark’s BBQ ministry, The Holy Smokers, prepare for May Fair long in advance, and stay up for days to smoke the brisket and pulled pork sold at the fair, using their trademark St. Mark’s Bell Tower BBQ Sauce.
May Fair is the celebration of the St. Mark’s community reaching out to the Town of New Canaan, and other communities, not only on the day of the fair but all year long through our outreach programs funded by May Fair proceeds. By attending May Fair, the public supports the mission of St. Mark’s and its Outreach Commission, and helps to fund generous outreach donations to charitable organizations locally, nationally, and internationally.
