 At the Community Theater, Sacred Heart University will be playing holiday favorites to preview the re-opening of the much beloved, iconic landmark.  Passersby may also meet the new theater director and find out more about what’s being planned when the theater opens early next year as well as partake in hot cocoa and fresh baked holiday cookies courtesy of the Old Post Tavern starting at 3PM. 

 First Selectwoman Kupchick said, “I encourage everyone to come and take part in this festive and fun-filled event in support our local business community, but I remind everyone to follow the public health guidelines.”  Fairfield Chamber of Commerce President Beverly Balaz added, “The Chamber of Commerce is happy to be partnering with the Town to present this year’s Stroll as it will give our businesses another opportunity to open their doors to the community and help celebrate the holiday season.”

 Fairfield Director of Economic Development Mark Barnhart noted, “This year has been an extremely challenging year for many of us, but especially our local merchants and our restaurants that help make Fairfield what it is.  Now, more than ever, it’s important for all of us to support our small businesses, as best we can.”

 The Town of Fairfield and Fairfield Chamber of Commerce would like to gratefully acknowledge and thank Mo’s Wine & Spirits, Sturges Ridge of Fairfield, Massage Envy, Vintage Garden and Fairfield Moms for helping sponsor this year’s event.
