The Town of Wilton has released a 2019 Summer Happenings flyer announcing lots of fun activities for adults, kids, and families. Looking for something to do this summer? Visit the Wilton Farmers Market to enjoy fresh, local produce. Celebrate the 4th of July with food, music, and fireworks. Enjoy live music at the Wilton Library Summer Concert series on Thursdays or Wilton Summer Concert Series on Sundays. Wrap up the summer with Trackside Teen Center’s annual Wilton Food Truck festival. 

The 2019 Summer Happenings flyer also features the ‘Guide to Recycling–What’s In, What’s Out’. The State of Connecticut now has a universal list of what belongs in your recycling bin and what doesn’t. To learn more, go to RecycleCT.com. The flyer will be distributed in upcoming Town of Wilton property tax bills and will be featured on the Town website.
