What's Up In Stamford, CT?
May 30, 2017
It's one of the most dreadful scenarios imaginable—you move to a new town, get settled in, then find out that there's nothing to do. Instead of the happening, fun seeking lifestyle you're accustomed to, you're subjected to a perpetual state of ennui (brought about by the dearth of local events and places to explore). Thankfully, if you're on the prowl for luxury apartments in Stamford, CT, you'll come to find that it isn't that kind of dreary town at all. Stamford has an endless list of things going on. So many, in fact, you might have trouble narrowing your selection down to one or two options.
Upcoming Events In (And Around) Stamford
Since Stamford has such a diverse range of venues, you'll find a diverse range of options to pick from. Here's a sampling of what's coming up soon.
Kicking off June is the Art Shapes Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit. This downtown attraction will display works by prestigious artists—a collection of original fiberglass constructions—all meticulously selected by distinguished jury members. The exhibit will last from June through August, and is free to the public.
In addition to the public viewing, there will also be an opening celebration held on June 13th at The Palace on Atlantic Street. The reception will feature cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, an opportunity to meet the artists, a tour of their impressive artwork, and an auction of the displayed pieces. A share of the proceeds will go towards the Avon Theater Film Center, one of Stamford's historic theaters dedicated to showcasing the best in independent work and Hollywood classics.
Paint, Sip, And Support
On June 1st, the Stamford Public Education Foundation is holding a group painting event to mark the end of the school year. Paint, Sip, And Support invites guests to Harbor Point, where they'll get things started with a Happy Hour (located at Sign Of The Whale), then commence the painting at Pinot's Pallete later in the evening.
The charity event is a great opportunity to mingle with other members of the community, gain inspiration from regional talent, and, in general, relax. You can snag a ticket for the full evening for $75.00, or spend $30.00 to enjoy the Happy Hour alone.
20th Annual Food & Wine Celebration
The Stamford Museum & Nature Center will be holding their 20th Annual Food & Wine Celebration on June 2nd. Some 350 guests will gather at the Bendel Mansion to sample food and wine from the best local caterers and restaurants. The event will feature door prizes, gift bags, and a raffle for attendees in addition to the spread of top-flight beverages and edibles. They've also added a new event to the festivities. The evening will include dancing, and guests can enjoy their food & drink in between bouts of cutting a rug.
Afterwards, you might even deign to check out the museum for yourself. They have a great many educational programs that feature wildlife, astronomy, and art. They've tailored many of these towards children as well, so the younglings can stay well entertained if you decide to visit.
GIFF Opening Night Party
The Greenwich International Film Festival marks every June with this celebration of art and culture. This year's festival will feature 54 long and short movies from filmmakers across the globe, along with some family friendly selections as well. There will be educational panels, and a jury consisting of some of the keenest minds in acting, directing, and producing.
The Opening Night Party, held on June 2nd, will be a star-studded affair, and a chance for guests to enjoy the festivities in superior style. In addition to food and cocktails, the event will feature a concert by rapper Flo Rida, and an awards presentation by Sophia Bush, of "Chicago P.D." fame.
2017 Homebrew Competition
On June 6th, Coalhouse Pizza will be teaming up with Maltose Express to host the 8th Annual Home Brew Competition. This open brewing competition allows participants to submit two bottles of their finest concoctions for consideration. The judges will award prizes to the best in show, first place, second place, and third place entries. The establishment is well-known for their selection of premium beer, so you might even see fit to stick around to try out some of their rare varieties and enjoy a meal while you're there.
SilverSource Annual Charity Golf Outing
If you enjoy golf and charity, the Annual Charity Golf Outing might be just the event for you. Held at the Rockrimmon Country Club on Long Ridge Road, this charity outing will feature a brunch (held before the tournament), a reception (held after the tournament), a special auction, and a seated dinner. The admission fee is $350, and all proceeds go towards supporting SilverSource's programs. They also have various sponsorship levels. Different donation amounts net different perks exclusively for the event.
Alive@Five Outdoor Concert Series
Seeing national headliners perform is always fun. Live music from regional stars, though, is just as enjoyable. The Alive@Five Outdoor Concert Series will provide the opportunity to enjoy the work of these artists, every Thursday night in Columbus Park from July-August. The downtown Stamford location is the perfect spot for outdoor music, and the lineup features both notable acts and rising stars you'll not want to miss.
