COVID-19 makes everything different in 2020, and Ambler Farm Day will be no exception. How will Ambler Farm turn its annual fall festival that attracts crowds of thousands every year into something even more special–especially for the event’s 20th anniversary?
This Oct. 4, the public will get to celebrate those 20 years with Cruise-thru Ambler Farm Day, a unique, coronavirus-safe version with a one-of-a-kind opportunity to see Wilton’s jewel in a totally new way. Visitors will be able to pack their ‘quaranteam’ in the car on for a fundraising field trip on wheels at the farm!
For the first time ever, participants will be able to drive from one end of the farm to the other and enjoy an assortment of activities, take-home kits, gifts, and treats scattered along the way.
In our exclusive, behind-the-scenes video, GOOD Morning Wilton gives you an up-close look at what each carload will experience at the more than 15 different modified Ambler Farm Day attractions along the cruise-thru route. Watch our tour to see the drive-thru activities and hear some special, GMW-only announcements. (PLUS! Watch to find out who gets a pie in the face, live on video!)
