I work with many clients who are relocating to Connecticut.  Today, while driving with a buyer from out of state, I was asked if Halloween was celebrated in Guilford CT during the Spring.   At first I was caught off guard by this question.... why would he ask today if we celebrated Halloween when it is May 1st? And then I saw this: Now his question made sense.  The Connecticut Renaissance Faire is in town this week!   The CT Renaissance Faire is one of many cultural events that take place in Downtown Guilford on the Guilford Fairgrounds.  Thousands attend each year from all parts of the country.  The “Renn Fair” as many call it, is a celebration of life and culture from the era of Shakespeare, Michelangelo and da Vinci.  The Faire brings us Meade (wine), stage performances, period art, ...

Guilford CT is a classic New England small town with a strong and vibrant community.  Much of this community is centered around regular annual events including the Independence Day Fireworks, the Christmas Tree Lighting and the Arts & Crafts Festival. Guilford CT recently cut the annual Independence Day Fireworks celebration from the 2011 budget.  The Guilford Parks and Recreation Commission and Guilford CT Board of Selectmen cut the Fireworks from the budget to avoid tax increases.  As a resident of Guilford, I'm a huge fan of the town fireworks and would hate to see this event canceled. The good news is that town residents, including Realtor® Adrian Price of Page Taft Real Estate, have spearheaded an effort to raise money to save the fireworks.  The New Haven Register recently covered...
