The Groton Business Association organized the first Groton Fall Festival in 2006. It was born from an idea to create a community-wide event that would attract artists, crafters and businesses and non-profit organizations to display their wares and information at Poquonnock Plains Park in Groton. Since its inception, the Fall Festival has grown dramatically. We now have over 110 vendors participating and thousands of people from the local area (and some from the not-so-local area) attend.
