25th Annual Branford Festival

By

fh0001481Mark your calendars everyone, this year the 25th Annual Branford Festival will be held June 19th-21st! One of the most exciting events of the summer, the Branford Festival has even more activities, music, and events than ever before. The festival kicks off at 5:00 p.m. on Friday with the Branford Concert Choir. Various musical acts perform throughout the night ending with Big Shot, a great Billy Joel cover band.

Need a reason to venture back to the festival after a long fun night of singing Billy Joel lyrics? Well I have three words that should make you run right out your door: Doritos Crusted Chicken. Yes, you read that correctly. Eli’s on the Hill will be providing this delicious treat on Saturday. If that doesn’t make your mouth water like mine, it’s no big deal because there will be 15 additional tents serving up a variety of food all day long. This includes everything from Italian ices to lobster rolls to Pad Thai to sweet potato fries. I could go on all day about the food, but you’ll just have to check it out for yourself. If you can pull yourself away from the food tents check out the community and craft expo where crafters, businesses and non-profits showcase their work. End your perfect day by heading over to the main stage around 8:45 p.m. to hear the Southern rock group, Marshall Tucker Band.

Sunday is a special day for the Branford Festival because you can participate in or watch both the Car Cruise Parade and the 29th Annual Branford Race. The Car Cruise Parade features classic and restored cars and street rods.

Of course, part of the enjoyment of the festival is living nearby so you can come and go as you please. The Montoya community in Branford is the perfect place for just that. The festival is just a short walk from these Brandford, Ct apartments.  And what better way to get to know the area than to attend Branford’s annual festival?
