FAIRFIELD, Conn. - Savor the winter beauty of the North Country -- without the long drive! -- at The Connecticut Audubon Society’s annual Adirondack Night celebration in Fairfield. On Saturday, March 7, starting at 6 p.m., the Center at Fairfield on Burr Street will be transformed into a rustic mountain lodge evoking the sights, sounds and flavors of an authentic Adirondack experience. The evening’s festivities last till 9 p.m.—or until the bonfire goes out!
The “Howl at the Moon” theme sets the tone for a fun, casual evening featuring food by Garelick & Herbs, an open bar including selections from Fifth State Distillery, local craft beers from Two Roads Brewing Co, and foot-tapping music by Barnstorm! Weather permitting a cozy outdoor bonfire will add to the ambience under a nearly full moon.
Traditional favorites of the evening will also make their return. In addition to silent, live and online auctions, staff naturalists will introduce resident animal ambassadors from the Center to welcome guests.
The event will be the setting for the launch of the Adirondack Night Annual Giving Appeal, which this year will support bringing underserved area students to the Center and enabling them to participate in Connecticut Audubon’s award-winning field-based Science in Nature education programs.
Adirondack Night takes place at The Connecticut Audubon Society’s Center at Fairfield, 2325 Burr Street in Fairfield. Tickets are $75 per person. To get more information and purchase tickets for your trip to the backwoods, visit: www.ctaudubon.org/adknight2020, or call 203-259-6305, ext. 109.
