Welcome to East Haddam Events

East Haddam, Connecticut is the Connecticut River Valley's hidden gem. History abounds in each of the town's four village districts, each with its own character and attractions. East Haddam Village awaits you as you travel across the oldest swing bridge in America, completed in 1913 to join Haddam and East Haddam. Great local restaurants, an ice cream shop and the Goodspeed Opera House round out this "downtown" cultural mecca. With our local airport, East Haddam is very easily accessible for business and leisure seekers as well.

From there, strolling along the river, especially at sunset, is a must. In the northern corners visit Moodus Center, the yesteryear national hub of twine manufacturing, where scenic campgrounds and local shopping now reside. Every convenience from dry cleaners to oil changes to eateries are there to help make things go smoothly. Our newly emerging South near Millington and Hadlyme include boat launches, reservoirs, golf courses and an abundance of public open space hiking trails making for a nature enthusiast's paradise. We encourage you to get out of the car and onto our trails with many miles of varied terrain available for hiking, including open space lands, nature preserves and Devils Hopyard State Park.

Traveling along our country roads you'll discover that not too much has changed since the days of old. Local farmsteads dot the landscape and the occasional tractor can be found making its way through the fields at the right times of year. Stop in at one of our farm stands for local produce, wine or cider and other specialties. East Haddam is also home to Ray of Light Farm, our local horse and donkey rescue offering therapeutic riding to people of all ages and a veteran's program. For our fitness-minded visitors, we offer a variety of gyms and studios, golf courses and horse stables along with our abundant trail heads for you to explore. Throughout the town you'll also find national historical and iconic landmarks such as the Nathan Hale School House, St. Stephen's Bell, the Grave Site of Venture Smith and Gillette's Castle.

East Haddam has some great locally owned businesses as well. The East Haddam Economic Development Commission (EHEDC) has been a vocal supporter of new and existing businesses. The EHEDC promotes a free listing of local businesses on the Town website that can be found here www.easthaddam.org. The Town website also provides a calendar, where you can find local happenings around town. Our own business ombudsman Irene Haines is also available to discuss your business interests.
