Carnivals in Connecticut

Fair Ferris WheelThe great thing about carnivals is that they tend to be a bit more “intimate”. By that I mean they are usually run by a church, volunteer Fire Department or civic group. It’s truly a community event, and you spend as much time talking to friends and neighbors as you do enjoying the carnival. Because of who is running these carnivals, it’s even more important to attend these. Usually these are the primary fund raiser for these groups and organizations. This is where they make the extra money to do the community outreach programs. Or maybe it’s to buy or replace the equipment that was cut from the budget. Having fun, and doing good at the same time. Cool….

If you are looking for a place to have some serious family fun, enjoy some rides and games, and have all that fair food that we know is nit the best for us, but tastes so damn good, here’s your list of Connecticut Carnivals. For the address and times, just follow this link to Connecticut Events and Things to do Calendar. There is a drop down for Fairs, Festivals, and Carnivals.
