The Laurel City Commission has announced application packets for the 88th Annual Laurel Festival are now available through their page on the Town's website.  The Laurel Ball is scheduled for Saturday, June 4, 2022 at East End Park with the Family Fun Day scheduled for Sunday, June 5, 2022

Tickets for this year's Laurel Ball are already available and may be purchased by emailing Melissa at: melissa.oiseau@gmail.com

The Laurel Festival dates back to 1934 with the crowning of Gladys Weaving in a ceremony held in the Central School auditorium. The contest was suspended between 1941 and 1949 because of World War II.  The community of Winchester typically celebrates with its abundant Mountain Laurel, the native state flower of Connecticut.  Over time, Winsted has traditionally celebrated with a parade including floats for each Laurel Festival contestant, a Family Fun Day, and the Laurel Ball.  Check out the Laurel Commission's Facebook page for more information or to volunteer with this long celebrated community affair!
