The event will take place at Boothe Memorial Park, 5800 Main Street in Stratford, CT – Lower Picnic Areas

Picnic

This event is open to all CCDL Members and to the public free of charge. Everyone is encouraged to attend this event to celebrate our rights in Connecticut to Keep and Bear Arms. Come and get to know us, and learn more about what CCDL does to protect your rights as a gun owner in the state of Connecticut.

Come and enjoy typical picnic fare – burgers, hotdogs, salads, desserts, soft beverages, and more. This will be an alcohol free gathering.

Bring your kids! Bring your dogs!

Any lawful forms of firearm carry are allowed and encouraged! If you will be carrying a firearm, please exercise safety and caution as we will be in the eyes of the public. Firearms must remain holstered for the duration of the event to ensure safety.

CCDL merchandise and membership sign-up will be available onsite. There will be games and prizes for all to participate in and enjoy.

Please let us know if you plan to contribute a food item. Salads, desserts, and snack items are suggested.

Note: Please do not park on the grass. If the parking lot is full (it’s a little small), you can park nearby on Putney Chapel Way (see the map below), and walk into the park from there. It’s actually almost as close as the parking lot, and you wont have to walk up and down the hill.
