The Holidays are Happening Every Day at Stepping Stones


Video is from past Holiday Happenings.
Join us in 2016 through December 31.

Holiday Happenings come to Stepping Stones as the museum starts to transform into a winter wonderland. It kicks off on November 22 with "Shine!" – a new creative dramatics and talent show program. You'll be able to slip and slide on our sock skating rink – called "the best in Connecticut" – pose for photos at all of our spectacular wintery scenes, enjoy holiday performances, dancing snow people and so much more. Each day is unlike the next!
