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.

The New Canaan Museum & Historical Society will be reopening to the public on June 23rd. Tours of the house museums, including the Cody Pharmacy, the Hanford-Silliman House, the Rock School, the Tool Museum and the Little Red Schoolhouse, will be available to individuals or families that have been sheltering in place together by appointment. The research library will be open with limited capacity so reservations are recommended. Visitors will be asked to wear masks and have their temperatures taken; researchers will need to also wear gloves. Equipment will be provided. “We are excited to welcome the public back to the Museum,” said Nancy Geary, Executive Director. “Even though we will remain socially distanced, we can share many of the wonderful assets on our campus. It is a great time to come explore historical New Canaan.” The research library will be open Tuesday-Friday 9:30-4:30. Tours are also available on Saturdays. And the beautiful lawn is available for picnics. For more information, or to make a reservation, please call 203-966-1776 ext. 2 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
