What is Suffield on the Green (SOTG)?

This is Suffield's largest event and is run by the Friends of Suffield.

Suffield on the Green is a wonderful opportunity to find out about services and organizations in town, including opportunities for children. This is the place to learn about scouting, churches, school groups, local businesses, clubs, town emergency services and much more.


Suffield on the Green takes place on the Town Greens in the center of town (intersection of Main Street and Mountain Road). Food vendors, bands and entertainment can be found on the South Green. Booths for community, civic and business groups are on the South, Middle and North Greens. Craft Fair Vendors are on the Middle Green. FUN ZONE on the North Green.


So come on out and Enjoy food prepared by town organizations while you listen to bands. Let the kids enjoy the bounce houses and children's entertainment while you sit and relax at the picnic table. On Sunday you can bring your pet for free nail trimming, learn about pet CPR and/or enter your dog in the Canine Contest and win great prizes.


Visit the Friends of Suffield booth on the North Green in the FUN ZONE for tickets for inflatables, check out all the great auction items, see listing of all booths and events and more.

Call them at 860-745-0383 to determine if you qualify to only require a consultation so you can submit minimum fee for non-profits, $25.


Examples of Commercial pre-packaged food/beverage not requiring a permit are bottled water, granola bars, etc


Example of what they would consult on for best practice for an item like a  chocolate chip cookie give away: bake & wrap in certified kitchen like at the church. This avoids needing a hand washing station and person with gloves to hand them out at the fair.
