We’re having some socially-distanced fun this summer! Each month, we’ll feature a different theme with fun activities for all ages.
In September, we’re celebrating the community that makes Mansfield special!
Community-wide Door Decorating Activity
It’s time to get creative! Residents and businesses are invited to decorate their front doors with each month’s theme as their inspiration. Houses, apartments, businesses - all doors are welcome!
Our theme for September is "Celebrate Mansfield!" Think of the people, organizations, businesses, or places that make Mansfield a special place to you. Or, throw a party (on your door) to celebrate our community!
Once you’ve created your masterpiece, snap a photo and share it on Facebook or Instagram using #MansfieldSummerFun.
We can’t wait to see what you create!
And as you walk or bike around town, keep an eye out for Mansfield’s decorated doors!
Part of the month-long Celebrate Mansfield Festival, the Partnership's "Where in Mansfield?" Scavenger Hunt will take participants all over town to find 20 locations. "Where in Mansfield?" is free and open to everyone!
The hunt begins at noon on Friday, September 4, and you have all month to find all 20 locations.
Each location will be marked with a "Where in Mansfield?" flyer that includes a QR code. Scan the QR code to access the next clue!
If you are uncomfortable visiting locations in person, you can still participate! Click here for a printable clue sheet. Guess all the locations, then send it in via email or mail it to: Mansfield Downtown Partnership, Inc., P.O. Box 513, Storrs, CT 06268
Share your Mansfield with our community! Tell us about your earliest memory, fondest moments, or favorite places and people in Mansfield.
We will create a community album, which will be posted on the Celebrate Mansfield Festival website and here on the Town's website, featuring your submissions.
Everyone is welcome to share 4-5 sentences, a photo or drawing if you'd like, and your first name and age.
