Groton Heights Waterfront Festival is a collective effort of many historic preservation and cultural organizations in the Groton Heights neighborhood, coming together to introduce residents and visitors to the many resources that exist in our community.

Connecticut Open House Day

Connecticut Open House Day is an annual event when cultural organizations and tourism attractions throughout the state open their doors to guests to discover — and rediscover — Connecticut’s fascinating world of art, history, film and tourism with a variety of special activities.

Come by land or by sea

Free boat service will be available between Groton and New London on the Thames River Heritage Park Water Taxi, sponsored by Electric Boat and operating from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm.

Gather knowledge. Win a prize.

Guests are encouraged to have their passports stamped at each location they visit; those collecting at least 5 stamps are eligible to enter a prize drawing.

Thanks to our sponsors

This special day would not be possible without the generous support of our local community. We hope you’ll support these  wonderful local businesses.
