The Connecticut Fan-Favorite: Town program kicks off this year’s spring/summer tourism campaign and we’d love your help rallying participation.
The program invites residents and visitors to vote for the Connecticut town that they think most embodies the spirit of the state’s brand, still revolutionary, by being a home for original ideas, inspiration and innovation. Participants will also have the opportunity to vote for the business, destination or attraction within that town that inspires them. The top 10 favorite towns will receive widespread promotional support and the winning town will also receive a two-minute video showcasing the town’s innovative, inspiring and unique places. The destination, attraction or business within the winning town that receives the most consumer votes will also be included in the video of the town. For each vote cast, people will be entered to win a 4-night getaway to the charming Connecticut River Valley.
