Long ago a small band of business owners, residents and firemen decided to celebrate their seemingly forgotten little village with a good old fashioned block party. It was the 75th Anniversary of the Georgetown Volunteer Fire Department -- as good a reason as any to have some fun and make some noise -- and that's exactly what they did! 15 years later, the event known as "Georgetown Day" has grown to become one of the area's most unique and diverse events where locals from around the county gather for a day of family merriment, engaging in revelry that for one day, Georgetown, the enigma of Fairfield County, thrives with the vibrancy of 5000 people as it did for 100 years when it was the epicenter of commerce in the area.

The event itself is coordinated and hosted by Georgetown Village Restoration, Inc., Georgetown Volunteer Fire Dept., the Georgetown Lions Club and the Georgetown Community Association. Over the years, the local business owners and townsfolk that comprise these organizations have each played key roles in the revitalization and beautification of our little town.

2017 also marks the 250th Anniversary of the Town of Redding -- a nice round number and another fine reason to throw a party! We hope that you will join us this year as we put on our Sunday best and indulge in all sorts of food, drink, games, interactive entertainment, rock out to some of the area's most talented musicians, crown the supreme chili chef, support local artisans, learn more about what makes Georgetown so special.
