In the Spotlight

As the "Cultural Capital of Connecticut", New Haven is home to a great many seasonal festivals celebrating art, culture, and food. The International Festival of Arts & Ideas (IFAI) is one of those, spotlighting world-class artists, thinkers, and leaders. Their vision? To foster arts and ideas in the lives of New Haven locals. IFAI is downtown’s longest-running celebration of dance, music, theater, and more. This year’s must-see IFAI performances include Octavia E. Butler's Parable of the Sower: An Opera by Toshi Reagon and Bernice Johnson Reagon, Dallas Black Dance Theatre and Michelle Buteau, purchase tickets here. See the entire IFAI festival lineup here.

This month marks #NationalIceCreamDay on June 7th, and what better way to celebrate than visiting a downtown ice cream shop? Made locally and scooped into a cup or cone to perfection, our go-to spots include Arethusa, Ashley’s or Milk Craft.

Ice cream and martinis? Yes, please. This month also marks #NationalMartiniDay on June 19th. Celebrate dad with a classic, shaken, not stirred. Let downtown’s seasoned mixologists serve you their interpretation of this staple. We recommend stopping by Bar 19, Elm City Social or Ordinary.
