The Stamford Museum and Nature Center located on 39 Scofieldtown Rd, in Stamford is celebrating Spring on their farm on May 20 and 21 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and you are invited!
There are many activities that are sure to delight such as watching the Center’s flock of sheep get their annual haircut during a traditional shearing session and learning what happens with their woolly coats. Festival goers will see firsthand how to turn wool into felt or yarn, among a variety of other hands-on demonstrations.
To add to the fun there will be a multitude of activities for all ages from face painting and crafts to live music with Jay and Ray, a plant and herb sale for gardeners and even hayrides around the grounds. The Museum’s galleries will be open and visitors are invited to view “Powerful yet Fragile: Connecticut’s Waterways,” a fascinating photography exhibition that touches on the importance of water.
The works of members of the Loft Artists Association will be featured in “Art on the Meadow” and available for purchase. Another special highlight is the display by the Yama Ki Bonsai Society that will be presenting a boutique exhibition of the ancient art of bonsai with more than 75 unique bonsai trees.
If all this works up your appetite, not to worry, there will be an assortment of local food trucks offering a variety of cuisines.
Daily admission to this event is $5 for members and $10 for non-members.
