The Farmington Historical Society is pleased to present a once-in-a-lifetime event for art and history lovers, and anyone interested in learning about the artists and collectors of the 17th-19th centuries who helped make Farmington what it is today.

The centerpiece of this day-long event will be "Farmington Art and Artists," an exhibit at the Barney Library, 1-4pm. Encompassing the 17th, 18th & 19th centuries, the show features works borrowed from the Connecticut Historical Society, Farmington Historical Society, Farmington Libraries, Mattatuck Museum, New Britain Museum of American Art, Stanley-Whitman House, Unionville Museum, Wadsworth Atheneum and private collectors. The exhibit is organized in six sections: Beginnings; Hudson River School era; pre-Raphaelite influence; Farmington-Hartford Art Colonies; American Impressionism and the French Connection; and Farmington Photography.

Essex - Essex Annual Shad Bake
Posted on: 2018-05-14
What: Essex Annual Shad Bake
Where: Connecticut River Museum, 67 Main St., Essex, CT
When: 6/2/2018 (Saturday), 3 PM - 6 PM
The Rotary Club of Essex and The Connecticut River Museum partner to bring you a classic Spring ritual of the Connecticut Shoreline- the Shad Bake. Now in its 60th year, the Rotary Club of Essex has maintained this important culinary tradition for decades.
Expertly de-boned, nailed on oak planks and cooked around a smoldering bonfire, the shad takes on a smokey flavor and will be accompanied by many sides, as well as pie from Lyman Orchards. Not a fan of shad? Hot dogs and barbecue chicken will be available as well. A cash bar will offer several different varieties of beer and wine, as well as nonalcoholic beverages.
In addition to great food and drinks, several talks and displays about the history of the Connecticut River shad fishery will be offered throughout the afternoon. A shuttle service will run from Essex Town Hall and the Pratt House (both on West Avenue) to the Museum to ease parking congestion. Come down to the River, eat some shad, learn about this important local culinary custom and have a blast!
Shad Bake Tickets will go on sale in April.
