Today from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the currents of the Quinnipiac River pull New Haveners toward Fair Haven—specifically, 307 Front Street—for Quinnipiac Riverfest, a late-morning/early-afternoon celebration of the river and the surrounding Fair Haven neighborhood. For entertainment, there are $5 canoe tours, plus live music from Fair Haven-dwelling folkers Goodnight Blue Moon, roots rock band The Backyard Committee and Latin group The Jean Sandoval Quartet. For food and drink, there are meals from Anastasio’s Boat House Café, located on-site, and beer tastings courtesy of local and regional makers Thimble Island Brewing Company, Two Roads, Thomas Hooker and Shebeen. And for the kids, there are magic shows by local magician/educator C.J. May the Resourcerer. Free.
