The 68th annual May Fair will take place on Friday, May 12 and on Saturday, May 13! | New Canaan & Darien Moms

“Friday Night Lights” continues this year. The fairgrounds were truly transformed into a glittering “city on the hill that cannot be hidden” [Matthew 5:14-16], proven positive by the New Canaan children and families who came out in droves.

May Fair is the celebration of the St. Mark’s community reaching out to the Town of New Canaan, and other communities, not only on the day of the Fair, but all year long through our outreach programs funded by May Fair proceeds.
