Every spring, the Friends and Neighbors of Putnam Park organize this living history event for over 1000 local elementary students. Eighteenth century re-enactors (cooks, potters, spinners, surgeons, musicians, soldiers, and others) demonstrate and discuss many facets of life in the late 1700s. Click here for our photo gallery from previous years.
This is our first time back since 2019!
School Days is one of our most popular events, and we are fully booked for 2022.
We’re still looking for volunteers to handle the school store! For more information, contact Barb Wyton at 203 938 0667.
