May Market 2022

May 6 - May 7

10 am to 4 pm 


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

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 which serves as a fundraiser in support of Hill-Stead’s gardens, grounds, and trails.

This year, the festive happening will feature over 30 premium exhibitors and flowers and unique plants perfect for Mother’s Day. Your admission includes access to visit Hill-Stead’s historic home and world-class collections.

With the changing status of the current pandemic, we are hopeful that we can offer both indoor and outdoor spaces for exhibitors, but will remain flexible in planning for a successful event following the CDC, State of Connecticut, and Town of Farmington recommendations closely. At the present time, Hill-Stead Museum requires that anyone indoors on Hill-Stead Museum property be masked. We aim to create a successful event for both sales and safety.


Coming Soon!


Hill-Stead’s own Hill-Steaders will offer plants for sale. Check back soon for a list of premium plant vendors.


Food will be available for purchase.

The much-anticipated annual event supports the museum’s 152 acres of beautiful gardens, grounds, and trails. “It’s so exciting to see Hill-Stead come alive with all the activity,” says Deb Key, Hill-Steaders current president. She adds that the lively group is always welcoming new members!
