About the Fest

The annual Branford Festival spans three days on Father’s Day weekend. Thousands of local residents, families and friends gather on the historic town green to enjoy live music, over a dozen food vendors, local talent, kids activities, crafts and more.

The final day of the festival includes the Branford Road Race on Sunday, which includes a 1 Miles Family Fun Run, 2 Mile Health Walk and 5 Miles Road Race.

How We Operate

The Branford Festival is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is run by volunteers, including a Committee and Corporate Board.

Our Committee brings the event to life by coordinating everything from entertainment to food vendors to souvenirs. The Corporate Board oversees policies and procedures, and make key decisions to ensure the event succeeds year after year.

Both our Committee and Corporate Board meet monthly.

Fundraise $40K for the Fest

As a non-profit organization, the Branford Festival is supported by donations from community members and local business partners.

As we plan for 2024 and beyond, we need your help. In celebration of our 40th anniversary, we have a goal of raising $40,000. We ask that you give back and get involved by making a donation. Your dollars – large or small – will ensure the Branford Festival can continue for years to come.
