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.

This year the Historical Society’s Annual Valentine’s Day Tea on Wednesday, February 14th, offers noteworthy entertainment by The Town Players of New Canaan. Cast members from the upcoming production of The Heiress, by Ruth and Augustus Goetz, will perform a dramatic reading of love letters from the Historical Society archives and an excerpt from Washington Square by Henry James, the novel upon which The Heiress is based.
Tea along with petite sandwiches, scones, fancy cakes and a variety of sweets, provided by both the New Canaan and Canaan Parish Chapters of the National Charity League, will be served from 1:00 to 3:30 pm, with the program at 2:00 pm. The cost is $10 for members and $20 for non-members. Reservations can be made by calling (203) 966-1776, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
