Bring raffle items and get a coupon that allows you free entry into the next Business After Hours meeting. Entry fee at the door is $10 for GMCC members and $20 for guests, and there is an option for invoicing. Do you attend all of our events?

The Groton Business Association organized the first Groton Festival in 2006. It was born from an idea to create a community-wide event that would attract artists, crafters and businesses and nonprofit organizations to display their wares and information at Poquonnock Plains Park in Groton. Since its inception, the Fall Festival has grown dramatically. We now have over 110 vendors participating, and thousands of people from the local area and throughout the New England region attending this annual event.

Net proceeds from the festival will be used to support GBA events, including Groton’s Annual Holiday Lights Parade in December and projects throughout the year. For more information, contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

Thank You 2017 Fall Festival Sponsors!
