FOCUS Festival for Autism
It’s Autism and Family Friendly Fun!
June 7, 2014 at 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!
Our renowned teacup raffle draws people in from far and wide! Local businesses have donated items including:

- Ski Lift Tickets
- Rock Cats Tickets
- 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 7, 2014 from 12:00 to 4:00, rain or shine! If in doubt, check our website!
