West Main Art Market Returns!
Join us at the factory for another great day of art and community.
This year we will have more Arts and Crafts vendors and booths for Cheshire's top cultural organizations.
What's even more special is that the event coincides with the ribbon cutting ceremony for the Cornwall to West Main segment of the Farmington Canal Linear Park. This trail segment has taken 20 years to complete and with its completion, riders can travel nearly 22 miles of protected, paved trails from New Haven to Southington. This is a huge occasion for trail users of all types.
Trail opening ceremony happens at 12:30 pm.

Special Ball & Socket Benefit Performance at Nelson Hall
Triple Espresso tells the story of three guys whose bid for showbiz fame and fortune ended in 4-minutes of magnificent failure on national television. Hugh Butternut, Buzz Maxwell, and Bobby Bean tell their rags-to-rags story earnestly, with hysterical results. The laughter is infectious and the comedy appeals to everyone from first graders to college students to baby-boomers to grandparents. Returning to Nelson Hall for our 10th Anniversary!
