Summer Fun in Fairfield County

Have you taken time to pause lately? To stop and smell those proverbial flowers? To actually enjoy life as a human BEing instead of a Human DOing? 

There is no better time than summer and no better place than Fairfield County to enjoy life. As community leaders, The Vanderblue Team is committed and honored to introduce our clients and friends to the local businesses we love. Here is just a small sampling of our favorite partners who offer SUMMER FUN, and so much more... 

Sea Kayak Connecticut in Westport offers all your kayak and paddleboard needs…and so much more! Create memories that last a lifetime on one of their many tours this summer. Make new friends on a sunset or full moon tour, kayak to Cockenoe or Sprite Island with a group of friends or watch the fireworks with a front-row seat right on the water. Summer camp for kids is magical with programs for 9-14 year olds creating new friendships and teaching  team building  and paddling skills in a safe and fun environment. Take it to the next level with classes from beginners to advanced training. Get a dose of fresh salty air and enjoy the water this summer at Sea Kayak Connecticut of Westport!

There is nothing like the live theater experience at The Westport Country Playhouse...performances that make you feel, think, and spark a conversation — shared between actors and audience. The Playhouse is committed to educating through the art of theater to create experiences that inspire lifelong learning as well as foster lasting partnerships with our community. A variety of programs are offered for kids pre-k -12, teens,  families, and teachers that inspire, educate and entertain. The Playhouse is an ideal location for a celebration, performance, showcase, or gathering offering several fabulous venues. 

Another fantastic summer of FREE music is on its way! Fairfield Theatre Company is pleased to present their 2nd annual Fresh-Air Concert Series, in the FTC Parking Lot. Every Tuesday from 5:30-8:30PM through August 30, they will feature up-and-coming local musicians, food trucks, and beer tastings. No ticket is required. Seating is festival-style so bring your own chair or blanket and of course your friends and family. All ages are welcome! Concessions & restrooms will be open inside The Warehouse. In the event of inclement weather, concerts will be moved into The Warehouse.  This FREE community event is made possible by people like you who continue to support FTC. We thank you and our sponsors who make our summer concert series a success.

When so many of us have the world at our fingertips through computers and smart phones, it becomes even more important to find ways to get face-to-face with our world’s wildlife.  Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo is 100 years old and cares for more than 100 species –including some who are critically endangered, and potentially facing extinction.  Become a member and enjoy unlimited admission and free/discounted admission to over 150 zoos & aquariums! Our goal is to instill a sense of wonder for the wild world, engage guests of all ages with the beauty and power of the animals in our collection, and encourage all of us to do our part to protect the lives of endangered species and endangered places. The Zoo is open daily from 9:00am - 4:00pm.

Silverman’s Farm in Easton is the Total Farm Experience! The Country market is open 7 days a week from 9am-5pm and is full of everything from fruits and vegetables to dairy products, jams, jellies, and condiments. They always have sweet treats to share with friends and family!  Have a fun outing and pick your own raspberries, blueberries, peaches and apples! Kids and adults all love to visit Silverman’s rustic animal farm! See, pet, and feed all sorts of unusual animals. It’s a fun place to have a birthday party too!  Silverman’s Farm has been a family staple in Fairfield County for over 100 years!
