New to town? Join the Newcomers Club of New Canaan!

One of our town’s greatest strengths is its spirit of community and friendship. The Newcomers Club of New Canaan is dedicated to helping new residents feel welcome and at home when they move to town. The Club is one of the oldest and largest organizations of its kind and offers a wide range of activities that will provide opportunities to meet new friends and ways to get involved in our wonderful town. Whether you are interested in cooking, sports, children’s activities, charitable giving or just want to socialize, the Club is sure to have something for you!

One of the Newcomers Club’s biggest events is the Holiday House Tour, a biennial event showcasing five New Canaan homes in varied architectural styles decorated for the holidays. Each home is paired with a professional designer who works with a team of Newcomer Volunteers to bring their vision to life.

While the Tour is a fun, festive way to kick off the holiday season, it is also an important fundraising event that highlights the true spirit of the season. All proceeds raised by this event benefit local charities and organizations that are the essence of our community. Over the last ten years, the Club has donated more than half a million dollars to a wide variety of worthy organizations.

Planning for the 2017 Newcomers Holiday House Tour is already underway, and we are currently seeking volunteers. If you or someone you know would like to participate please email
