Branford Jazz on the Green

For many years the Branford Recreation Department provided free Sunday afternoon concerts on the Branford Town Green. Visitors could listen to everything from blues and country to big band and swing. Residents from the Community met with the board and suggested that the board could increase public interest by changing the musical focus to jazz and changing the event to a weeknight when more people are likely to attend and in turn, stimulate the local economy. The Board agreed and a committee was formed to guide the inaugural event that would begin in the summer of 2009. This year we have ten shows in a row beginning on Thursday, June 28 and ending on Thursday, August 30. All shows will begin at 6:30 pm.

DISNEY'S THE LITTLE MERMAID at Warner Theatre

In a magical kingdom beneath the sea, the beautiful young mermaid, Ariel, longs to leave her ocean home to live in the world above. Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney's The Little Mermaid is a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. With music by eight-time Academy Award winner, Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater and a compelling book by Doug Wright, this fishy fable will capture your heart with its irresistible songs, including "Under the Sea," "Kiss the Girl" and "Part of Your World." Ariel, King Triton's youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric in the world above, bargaining with the evil sea witch, Ursula, to trade her tail for legs. But the bargain is not what it seems, and Ariel needs the help of her colorful friends, Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull and Sebastian the crab to restore order under the sea. Presented by special arrangement with Music Theatre International, Inc.

178th Orange County Fair

For over 100 years, the Orange County Fair has been entertaining families in the Hudson Valley and beyond. Each year, we look for the best in family entertainment, local and national music, racing and auto events such as our demolition derby and of course amazing amusement rides. We have invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in our grandstands and grounds, improving the guest experience and bringing the fair to a new level. If you haven't been to the fair in a while or if you have been a regular fair or race fan, we hope you will come out this year with your friends and family and see all we have to offer. Whether you are here to see one of our grandstand shows (almost all now have some free seating with fair admission), taste some of the delicious fair food, watch an incredible lion and tiger show or take a spin on one of our all new rides, we look forward to you making family memories that will last a lifetime.
