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.
Groton Fall Festival takes place at Poquonnock Plains Park in Groton, Ct.
With cool fall days comes the desire to indulge in a hot bowl of chowder — and what better place to do so than here at Mystic Seaport? Our Chowder Days menu is sure to satisfy all appetites and features a variety of chowders and bisques, along with clam fritters, bratwurst, chicken kabobs, hamburgers, hot dogs, fish tacos, and apple fritters. Beer, wine, cocktails, and soft drinks will also be available.
Special event activities include live music, horse and carriage rides, games, a scarecrow activity, face painting, and arts and crafts in the Children's Museum.
