21st Annual Teddy Bear Festival

New Milford, CT �" The 21st annual Teddy Bear Festival hosted by the Woman’s Club of Greater New Milford will take place on the town green on Saturday, June 3th from 10 to 3.  Smokey the Bear will be joining us again this year, escorted by firefighters from Water Witch Hose Company No. 2, and heading up our Teddy Bear Parade at 12:00 Noon.  Attendees are invited to join us with their furry friends in the parade!

The highlight of our festival is always the Teddy Bear Hospital.  Attendees are invited to bring their favorite plush toys for a check-up with our volunteer nurses from the Girl Scouts, “Surgeons” will be available for plush friends in need of repairs.  Back by popular demand, the hospital will include an adoption center for bears in need of new homes, as well as our Bare Bear Boutique to outfit your newly adopted friend or accessorize one you already have.  All Teddy Bear Hospital services are free of charge, but co-pay donations are welcome.

Featured entertainment this year will be Story Time under the Big Tree, a Slime Demonstration featured two times throughout the day, the Teddy Bear Parade, an Expanded Games area which will include a bounce house this year, and of course many other activities. 

And don’t forget to support our vendors from area businesses and non-profits! This year, we have also expanded our food vendors to accommodate a variety requests.
