Stonington Historical Society

The Cannon Ball

We strive to inspire you with new programs, exhibits, and collaborations as the Stonington Historical Society advances its mission to preserve, interpret and celebrate the history of our town. We welcome you to share and support these efforts by attending our annual fundraiser. The 2021 Cannon Ball will focus on celebrating Stonington's farmlands; past, present and future. Join us on Saturday, September 11th at the beautiful and historic Manatuck Farm for an evening of dancing, laughter and philanthropy.

*Please note:The Stonington Historical Society is closely monitoring the current health crisis and will be in full compliance with all local and state health guidelines and mandates for the Cannon Ball at Manatuck Farm. All guests are expected to be fully vaccinated and we respectfully request that unvaccinated supporters enjoy the festivities in spirit only. The Cannon Ball is an outdoor event held under a tent with open sides. We have decided to limit attendance and have also reserved the largest tent possible to allow for safe interactions. Valet parking will be available, but not required. All service staff will be fully masked. If the situation changes and we need to move to an online format, please be assured that your ticket purchases will be fully refunded.
