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.

Vendors will be located both indoors and outdoors. Shop and enjoy the beautiful grounds during this springtime celebration.
