25th Anniversary

25 years ago, in 1994, the 14-mile segment of the West Branch Farmington River from Hartland to the Canton/New Hartford line received its designation! 

This year is turning into a great year for the Farmington River. As we celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Upper Farmington River becoming a Wild & Scenic River - we have another victory - 1.1 miles in Canton were designated Wild & Scenic making the Upper Farmington River designated area a total of 15.1 miles. Learn more about Wild & Scenic here.

PodunkThrowbacks.jpgSunday, July 28, 3-5pm  - music by the Podunk Throwbacks

Join the celebration at the New Hartford Pavilion. Bring a lawn chair or picnic blanket, and enjoy the beauty of the Farmington River while listening to the FRCC River Concert Series. Sunday afternoons 3pm-5pm. May 26, June 30, July 28, August 25.

Podunk Throwbacks will be playing at the Pavilion on July 28th, 3-5pm. “Throwback” to a time when songwriters did not “woo” listeners with familiar covers while slipping their own works in between but believed in their songs enough to allow them to stand on their own.... that’s The Podunk Throwbacks. Songwriter, Todd Skilton, combines life experience with jazz, rock, country, folk & classical influences, providing a little something for everyone to relate to. Together, the Podunk Throwbacks take these musical perceptions of life and "throw them back" with a unique sound, no "gimmicks" or formulation & an energy that keeps the audience engaged.

 Free and open to all.
