First Selectman Mike Tetreau announced today that the Town of Fairfield and the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce will co-sponsor a “Shop & Stroll Into Spring” event on Thursday, April 28, 2016. Participating shops in downtown Fairfield will stay open late and will offer patrons an assortment of complimentary hors d’oeuvres and seasonal refreshments from 5 pm to 9 pm. Local restaurants will be offering dinner or drink specials throughout the evening.
This year, for the first time, local merchants are partnering with the Fairfield Foundation for Education (FFE) to support that organization’s work. The FFE is a community non-profit organization that awards grants to Fairfield public teachers and educators who are working to enrich the curriculum with creative and innovative learning opportunities. More information about FFE’s work can be found at http://www.fairfieldffe.org.
Businesses that wish to participate in the event should contact Fairfield Community and Economic Development Director Mark Barnhart at (203) 256-3120 or Beverly Balaz of the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce at (203) 255-1011.
