Winter Weekend in Norfolk is Only a Week Away

A Winter Weekend in Norfolk: our annual two-day winter festival with music and art, food and games, tours and every other kind of fun you can think of...the last weekend in February every year in Norfolk, Connecticut! Check out all 2019’s events below and at weekendinnorfolk.org.  Stay tuned to Norfolk/Canaan HamletHub for updated information next week as well.
 
Everyone in town gets together to welcome you with a wonderful variety of things to do. Hear world-class music, ski our beautiful woodlands, take a cooking class, get acquainted with curling. Enjoy art shows everywhere, then treat yourself to a self-guided tour of Norfolk’s historic houses. Eat in one of our fine restaurants, see craftsmen (and women) demonstrate how they work, shop the farmers market, see a puppet show, go skating and star gazing, admire our beautiful stained glass windows…the list goes on and on.
 
Come by yourself or bring family and friends…. Whatever your pleasure, we’ll welcome you. For details of 2019’s many events, see weekendinnorfolk.org.
