Connecticut Family Day

The 21st Annual Connecticut Family Day is Happening September 9, 2018

CT Family Day is officially celebrated on the second Sunday in September.  In 1997, State Senator Joe Crisco created this holiday by state statute and the Department of Children and Families has been responsible for coordinating a poster contest.  The posters, with a different theme each year, are collected and judged by a panel who selects the best one which exemplifies the theme.  The winning poster is then utilized in the promotional materials.
