IFAIBeginning this Saturday, artists from around the world will be taking over the city of New Haven for the annual International Festival of Arts & Ideas. Now in its 14th year, this exceptional two week festival has solidified its position as one of the world’s most significant art festivals. The Festival showcases hundreds of international events, from over 75 countries, with an impressive scale and scope unmatched in the Northeast. For many New Haven locals, the International Festival of Arts & Ideas is their favorite event of the year.

Art does only only mean paintings and sculptures, although there will be hundreds of one-of-a-kind pieces on display. Truly encompassing the definition of art, the hundreds of events include music, dance, theater, film and more, most of  which are free of charge. Events begin this Saturday, June 13th, and conclude on Saturday, June 27th.

The US Premier of CircusThe Festival is really excited to have the Barabbas Theatre Company performing Circus this year. Circus has never been performed in the United States, making this the American premier of the critically acclaimed production. Grammy award-winning music group They Might Be Giants is performing a family concert opening weekend. There are too many events and too many headliners to go through them all, but this is THE event to experience a variety of cultures through the arts, and you cannot miss it. Read More→

highland-games-picThe 86th annual Round Hill Highland Games is to be held this year on Saturday, June 27th. The Highland Games are the third oldest games in the United States. Originally, the games were held on a private estate in Greenwich, Connecticut but have since ended up in Norwalk. If you are of Scottish descent, Highland Games encourages you to register your clan and participate in the Parade of Clans during the opening ceremonies. During the parade clans wear their plaids and call out clan war cries.

Visitors are encouraged to learn about Scottish heritage during this full day of events. For instance, learn about Highland dancing by going to the Highland dance competition. There, Scottish Country dancers demonstrate the elegant and lively dances of Scotland. Or listen to individual piping and drumming competitions that are held throughout the day. Read More→

There is something about summertime that makes me think of concerts. Concerts and the park. For whatever reason, it seems that people just gravitate toward outdoor venues as soon as summer turns the corner. You might think that the heat would keep people inside, but even that doesn’t seem to be a deterrent. Maybe it comes from childhood memories of spending the summers enjoying the sun. The reason for enjoying summer doesn’t matter, rather finding a fun activity is important.

Enter Stamford Alive at 5. This concert series is the perfect event to enjoy the summer. Running from June 25th to August 6th, Stamford Alive at 5 presents various musical guests ranging from national to regional headliners. Read More→
