The stories you’ll tell after returning from your trip to Connecticut might be on par with the ones Mark Twain wrote. After all, you had to stop at the Mark Twain House & Museum in Hartford and you’re inspired. But that’s only one thing on a mighty list of must dos in the Constitution State. Between the beaches, colonial history and a claim to have been the birthplace of the hamburger, there’s an array of festivals in Connecticut, and they carry as much culture as the Yale University Art Gallery. Connecticut festivals prove the state’s brimming with world-class music, art, cuisine and cultural heritage.
