Ridgefield is the first town in Connection to be recognized as a cultural district.
Gov. Ned Lamont highlighted the designation at a ceremony.
It recognizes the town’s downtown area and its art businesses, organizations and attractions, including the Aldrich Museum.
Signs will be placed on both parts of Main Street, letting people know they are entering a cultural district.
Executive Director of the Ridgefield Playhouse Allison Stockel says it also celebrates residents.
“I am so proud to be a part of a community that embraces the arts, not only because of how important they are in our lives, but because of what they add to the character of the community,” Stockel says.
