The EDC is organizing a celebratory food truck festival/market style event at Sweet Hill Farm for the Harvard Yale Regatta on June 11, 2022.
The Regatta Day Festival so far has about 14 interested vendors and 8 confirmed vendors, all Ledyard based small businesses so far!
At their recent meeting, the team discussed Fireside Pizza, which sadly needs to be rebuilt due to a fire. The Fireside owners are working on completing their new restaurant, Sunnyside Diner, in the same plaza on the opposite side of the building.
EDC member Jessica Buhle proposed that residents could show financial and moral support by purchasing gift cards for Sunnyside Diner, once they are available, in order to provide cash flow and show that we believe in their restaurant and plan to support it. Town Councilor Naomi Rodriguez also attended the meeting and asked if there is a way to run a complimentary ad for them in the Ledyard Events Magazine. This idea is being explored.
The EDC is also eager to know more about the businesses in Ledyard and what the Town can do to make it easier for them to do business here.
