Village Fair Days, New Milford’s signature summer festival, marks its 52nd year on July 26 and 27 with an added treat. The town’s Fourth of July fireworks were rescheduled this year and will be held at dark on July 26 to end Fair Days’ first night with a bang.
Sponsored by the Greater New Milford Chamber of Commerce and held on the historic Green, Village Fair Days features live entertainment, Bingo, bouncy houses, a food court and nearly 200 vendor and community booths, the website explains, calling the festival “a summertime destination for shopping, socializing, eating, and browsing.”
As the town’s largest annual event, it draws thousands of visitors each year.
The Cramer & Anderson Tent
Cramer & Anderson will set up its Village Fair Days tent across from the Green outside the firm’s flagship office at 51 Main St. Visitors are welcome to stop by from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, and from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday.
Among the firm’s giveaways is a perennial favorite—candy for young visitors. Items for adults this year include reusable bags to bring to the wine shop, farmers market, or grocery store for small orders, as supermarkets move away from single-use plastic bags. Big Y, for example, which has a New Milford location, will stop using plastic bags in Connecticut and Massachusetts as of Aug. 1.
“Village Fair Days is great tradition for New Milford and western Connecticut. We love setting up a tent on the lawn for the festival, and especially value the firm’s significant role in the town’s rich history,” said Partner Ken Taylor, noting that attorneys will be available to pop out of the office to answer any questions visitors to the booth might have.
Cramer & Anderson was formed in 1962 when the late Attorney Henry B. “Hank” Anderson and Attorney Paul Altermatt joined their firm with Cramer, Blick, Fitzgerald & Hume. Originally based in New Milford and Litchfield, Cramer & Anderson has grown to include six offices in western Connecticut.
While 57 years old in its current incarnation, the firm traces its lineage to the Civil War era. In the late 1920s and early 1930s, Attorney David Cramer was a law partner to Attorney and Connecticut Judge John T. Hubbard, whose father, John H. Hubbard, called “Old Connecticut” by President Abraham Lincoln, began his Litchfield law practice in 1854.
Cramer & Anderson’s flagship New Milford office is located in the historic 1793 Elijah Boardman House, whose namesake was an important post-Revolutionary War era businessman, U.S. Senator and real estate investor.
