Celebrate Make Music Day at Connecticut's oldest
house! Enjoy an evening of free outdoor music performances on the museum's
front lawn as we take part in this global
celebration of music on the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. Bring blankets, chairs, and a picnic - - or
better yet, get food and drink from on-site vendors, including The Leaner
Wiener. The event will feature various musicians, including a return
engagement by the Skunk Misery Ramblers who figuratively brought the house down
last year. New this year, audience members are encouraged to bring their own
instruments to play during intermissions between scheduled performances. Check
the event listing on the museum's Facebook page for the latest details on the
performance schedule and food vendors. There
is free parking and no charge for the performances and Visitor Center.
The Whitfield House will be open for self-guided tours ($6 admission and free
for children ages 12 and younger). The event will be canceled if it rains.
