FOCUS Festival for Autism

It’s Autism and Family Friendly Fun!

The Festival for Autism has been postponed to focus all our energy on the kids and programs. We hope to be back next year. Stay up to date at our Facebook page,

 Mills Pond Recreation Center – Canton, CT

Come join us for an afternoon of old-fashioned fun! Join in games, activities, music, food, and take part in our Teacup Raffle and Silent Auction!

Here are some of the teacup raffle and silent auction prizes from past festivals:

  • Disney Vacation
  • Private Wine Tasting (For up to 20 people)
  • Photography session from Le Petit Studio
  • Exciting Gift Baskets
  • Gift Certificates to Area Restaurants
  • Gift Cards
  • And more!

The Festival’s environment supports the needs of children on the autism spectrum and their families. Opportunities for sensory integration are provided while, at the same time, consideration is taken for sensory overload.
There is no fee for admission and most activities are free! This year’s Festival will be on Saturday, June 6, 2015 from 12:00 to 4:00, rain or shine! If in doubt, check our website!
