Connecticut Open House Day, now in its 18th year, is an annual event held on the second Saturday of June.

The purpose of this event is to inspire Connecticut residents to learn about all the experiences in their own backyard, anticipating that this will convert them into ambassadors who will recommend these experiences to other visitors. The state heavily promotes this event and typically enjoys significant press coverage each year.

Join Bristol in celebrating CT Open House Day including the Harry C. Barnes Memorial Nature Center from 10am-3pm.  Some of our resident critters will be out for closer inspection! Enjoy hiking on our trails. General Admission after 3pm.
