The towns are Somers, East Windsor, Enfield and Ellington. Throughout the years, various locations were utilized by the four towns until 1960. The fair society, known as the Union Agricultural Society, purchased land in Somers as the permanent location of all future fairs.

UNITY interactive public art project at the Whitfield Museum

Whitfield House 248 Old Whitfield St, Guilford

Free Event! UNITY interactive public art project – Multicultural Performances – Community Expo – Kindness Rocks – Food & Supplies Drive – Tours In celebration of Welcoming Week, you’re invited to this free event to help build a nation of neighbors! Welcoming Week is an annual international campaign and celebration showcasing the work of communities striving to be more welcoming places for all, including immigrants and refugees. The Whitfield House was built in 1639 as the home of Guilford’s first minister as well as a fort for the new settlement of about 350 Puritans fleeing religious persecution in England. While Puritans were religious refugees, they were often not welcoming to those with differing views or those they thought of as inferior. Here at the museum, we’re committed to Welcoming Week’s goal of building a nation of neighbors. WelcomeFest is a free event open to everyone where we learn about cultures different from our own, celebrate our similarities and differences, and foster mutual understanding and deeper belonging for all. Support provided by CT Humanities.
