Taste of Enfield

Beer Garden

Honor our rich history of American Independence at one of the best parades in CT. See why we are honoring our local heroes with all the pageantry of military tributes, marching bands, floats, famous characters, and dignitaries galore!

Join us along Enfield Street from the Olde Enfield Town Hall and march two miles down Historic Enfield St. to the Town Green.

Some roads leading to Enfield Street begin to close between 10:00 AM and 10:30 AM, with the parade stepping off at 11:00 AM, so be sure to make preparations ahead of time.

Kids Events

Fun & Free. That's the way we serve it up for the kids year after year! From face painting to Lego-fun, and the jumbo moonwalk, your children will have a ball.

Open Friday from 5:00 - 7:00 PM and Saturday from 12:00 - 7:00 PM in the designated Kid's Play Area to the West of Town Hall, you will find tons of fun activities!

Craft and vendor fair

Visit our marketplace, where a variety of crafters and vendors have been invited to sell their merchandise. Stroll from tent to tent and see clothiers, jewelers, Men’s and Woman’s grooming products, candles, hand-painted birdhouses, butterflies, and dragonflies. There will be face painting and henna tattoos. After enjoying our marketplace, take time to relax on the lawn with food from the Taste of Enfield, listen to live music performed from the stage, and participate in several other activities. Spend the day and discover all the Enfield Fourth of July Town Celebration has to offer to you, your family, and friends.
