Sports & outdoor events

The Annual Stratton Faxon Fairfield Half Marathon, scheduled on June 27, in 2010, is perhaps one of the most popular and favorite annual sporting events in Fairfield.

 

The run, which was named `race of the Month` in a 2008 edition of Runner's World Magazine, is hosted by Fairfield Firefighters and attracts runners, as well as numerous spectators, from throughout the northeast, to Jennings Beach, every year.

 

The main beneficiary charity of the 2010 Fairfield Half Marathon is the Connecticut Burns Care Foundation and The Arthur C. Luf Children's Burn Camp, which is dedicated to help children adapt to their injuries, helping them to reintegrate in their family and community life, building their self-esteem and self confidence.

 

Festivals

There are numerous fun and entertaining celebrations that are happening all over Connecticut, throughout the year, and some of the most popular and favorite ones are listed below. Check it out!

 

- The Connecticut Storytelling Festival, celebrated every April, mainly aims an adult audience, despite its name which makes us think of kids. The festival also features several programs suitable for the entire family, including music, workshops, historical role performances and Egyptian myth-telling activities.

 

- Another popular Connecticut celebration is considered to be the International Festival of Arts and Ideas, which takes place in New Heaven, every June, offering visitors an eclectic mix of dance, poetry, theatre, music, workshops, exhibitions and many other attractive and interesting activities.
