Midsummer Festival

Cultural and social service organizations partner with local artists and businesses to celebrate the arts in Old Lyme with a mix of music, art exhibitions, and food. In its over 30 years the festival has grown in visitation and offerings — but has always stayed true to its mission of highlighting the culture of the community.
