When Memorial Day comes around each year, with its promise of a three-day weekend, you may be tempted to lie around and catch up on sleep or chores. However, there are many great ways to get out and enjoy your time off in Stamford.
Salsa Fest and Summit Competition
Memorial Day weekend, salsa dancers from around the world converge on Stamford for the Salsa Fest and Summit Competition. Visitors to the Salsa Fest and Summit Competition can look forward to watching the competition, enjoying workshops, and even doing a little salsa dancing themselves. Be sure to not miss out on this fun-filled cultural event!
Memorial Day Barbecue
As Memorial Day is the unofficial kickoff to summer for most people, a barbecue is the best way to celebrate. At Grace Farms, you can explore the 80 acres of natural landscape and enjoy a great meal. From 10 a.m. to noon, kids can participate in the Open Art Studio, where they can do hands-on art activities. Field games will be held as well, including kickball, corn hole, and ladder ball among other games for guests of all ages. Of course, you have to grab lunch, which is available from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. A limited menu is provided with options from the Grace Farms menu as well as other barbecue specials.
Jim Fixx Memorial Day Run
Pack up the whole family on Memorial Day and head to Greenwich to participate in the race day activities. At 8:15 a.m., two races kick off. A 5-mile race takes runners down a scenic road through downtown Greenwich. A kids’ half-mile race is also available and takes place on the historic Havemeyer Track. If you are looking for a way to get out and get active this Memorial Day, head to the Jim Fixx Memorial Day Run.
