Join us for May Market, Hill-Stead’s springtime fundraising event!

May Market, Hill-Stead’s much-anticipated annual event supports the museum’s 152 acres of beautiful gardens, grounds, and trails. May Market is produced with enormous support by the Hill-Steaders, volunteer ambassadors of Hill-Stead, who have supported the museum with fundraising and outreach initiatives for over 30 years. This is one of their largest events.
