The Best Festivals in Washington CT

Festivals and Fireworks

Birds eye view of a country fairFairs and festivals include year-round, multiple-day celebrations of music, food, sports, ethnic holidays, crafts, events, delicious food-themed events, and more, both indoors and outdoors. Often, vendors presents great original crafts, gift items, home-made seasonal and regional food and other great gifts and mementos to take home from your Litchfield Hills vacation. One of the many calendars can be found here.


One of the best fairs is The Bridgewater Country Fair which is a long standing tradition, preserving the character of the country fairs of yesterday, when farmers and other country folk congregated to compete with their prized livestock, produce, and arts and crafts. It was also, and still is a place where one can compare the latest farm and lawn equipment and haggle on the price of a new vehicle.

You can purchase tickets for the event at town hall but a cheaper and maybe better way to see this event is right around the corner of our Bed and Breakfast. From Painter Ridge Road you have a perfect view into the valley and - a bonus - you can also see the fireworks miles away in the neighboring towns!

In the holiday season you should visit Bethlehem's Christmas Town Festival. A visit to the Bethlehem Post Office to send holiday mail has become an annual tradition for many families. You can select one of the 80 "Christmas Cachet" designs to hand-stamp your holiday greetings before mailing them off to friends and family with the Bethlehem Post Office cancel mark.
