Spring Haven at Trolley Square in New Haven

Friday night I attended a really fun event at Trolley Square in New Haven.  Spring Haven was a collaboration of local Connecticut shops, designers, artisans, and restaurants. There was food, shopping, music and even an aerialist! Connecticut is full of so many talented people and creative small businesses.  This was a great way to see it all in one place.

Outside there were some great local food trucks and a few mobile shops as well.  It was a good mix of stuff, but I was sad that there weren’t any cupcake trucks there 🙁

This was a really fun event and a great way to spend a Friday night.  I love to support local businesses and see all of the creativity out there!  This was the 3rd event put on by Haven Events and it looks like they are doing them every few months.  Hopefully there will be another one this summer when it’s a little warmer to enjoy the food trucks.  Maybe there will be cupcakes 🙂

  1. I wanted to go…but didn’t get out of work until 7 and by then I was exhausted!
    Glad you had a good time…and I’m so sorry that a cupcake truck wasn’t there for you!
