FAIRFIELD, Conn. — The Greenfield Hill Congregational Church in Fairfield hosted its 81st annual Dogwood Festival over the weekend.
The three-day festival celebrates the white and pink blossoms that have become part of the fabric of the town of Fairfield in the spring.
The theme of this year’s festival was "Do Good at the Dogwood," which represents the church’s commitment to the greater good and serving others.
Proceeds from the Dogwood Festival go toward local, national and international charities that support families and at-risk children, address homelessness and aid other altruistic endeavors.
This year’s event included an array of activities and destinations, including the Friday luncheon. That event featured a performance by the Ekklesia Contemporary Ballet Company; Kate’s Korner, which had a variety of consignments, from housewares to clothing; the garden tent, which sold springtime plantings; the grill tent; the Dogwood Dash run and mini-Dash, plus various musical performances.
Visitors shopped at over 50 craft, artisan and food booths, featuring vendors from throughout New England.
