Join us for the Fine Arts & Crafts Boutique Show!

34th Annual Fine Arts & Crafts Boutique Show, two weekends, twice the fun! October 7, 8, and 9 10-5 and October 14, 15, and 16.

We're very excited to continue the Glass Sphere/Orb Hunt that we kicked off last year (in celebration of the Hotel's 50th anniversary of the restoration project). There are glass orbs hidden at historic sites and non-profits in the Litchfield and Fairfield County area. Along with the clear glass orbs, we have 22 colored ones (for 2022), here's where you register your sphere (and see which ones have been found!)...

We're very excited to continue the Glass Sphere/Orb Hunt that we kicked off last year (in celebration of the Hotel's 50th anniversary of the restoration project). There are glass orbs, created by Nunwell Glass in Lakeville, Connecticut, hidden at historic sites and non-profits in the Litchfield and Fairfield County area. Along with the clear glass orbs, we have 22 colored ones (for 2022).
The rules are simple....If you find one, you get to keep it! Just be sure to register it here. If you find another one, please leave it (or re-hide it) for someone else to find.
We want to thank all the sites that are participating (at no cost to them other than coming up with a great place to hide the orbs). By inviting other non-profits to take part in our "hunt", we can all benefit. It's so important for all our local non-profits to continue to thrive and to grow - especially after being "on pause" due to the pandemic. We hope this event will be a way to help achieve that.
We want to give a BIG shout out to the New Milford Commission on the Arts for their generous donation to help offset the cost to hold this event! Thank you so much for supporting us!
Some of the other participating organizations include New Milford Historical Society, Gallery 25 (in New Milford), Brookfield Craft Center, Kent Historical Society, Litchfield Historical Society, Danbury Railway Museum, and more!
