As the warmer weather of spring thaws the iciness of winter, the greater New Haven area turns into a veritable smorgasbord of culture, with events and festivals happening all over the place. From the Cherry Blossom Festival in New Haven that occurs on April 24th to the Hike-a-Giant event in Hamden in early June, there’s literally something for everyone and Lexon Limo can be your ticket to enjoying what the region has to offer in style. With an affordable limousine and professional driver at your disposal, Fairfield and New Haven counties will be your oyster and you’ll be able to experience plenty of fabulous events.
At Lexon Limo, our pick of the litter for this spring is the International Festival of Arts & Ideas, which will take place in New Haven for 2 weeks, from June 10 – June 25. The centerpiece of the festival may be the musical concerts (George Clinton, Lila Downs, and Red Baraat, just to name a few), but the real draw is the myriad events that make up the festival, such as the MakeHaven Tour-A-Thon which celebrates the Maker movement and free lectures that address everything from intellectual property in music to youth activism.
In addition, to the International Festival of Arts & Ideas, there’s plenty more to explore. Another highlight is the Meriden Daffodil Festival (April 30 – May 1), which, as the name implies, celebrates the ordinary daffodil. Live music, food, and more will be on display as well as more than half a million flowers in bloom. Our other recommendations include the following:
May Market in Farmington (April 30 – May 1) – Plants for sale, crafts, and antiques.
Robin Hood Festival in North Haven (May 21 – June 5) – A full-on Renaissance faire.
Cheshire Strawberry Festival (June 18) – More strawberries that you can shake a stick at!
