Trumbull Day 2018

Trumbull Day is returning to June! First Selectman Vicki Tesoro is excited to announce that the traditional Trumbull Day is returning to the last weekend of June 2018 and will once again coincide with the Barnum Festival. “I am thrilled we can bring Trumbull Day back to the end of June as the unofficial start of the summer season,” says Tesoro.

Trumbull Day will begin with carnival rides, amusement games and food trucks on Thursday, June 28, 2018 from 6 p.m. – 11 p.m.

Festivities will continue with carnival rides, amusement games, and food trucks on Friday, June 29th from 6 p.m. – 11 p.m.

While there will be no carnival on Saturday, June 30th, the main event will be the Barnum Festival Drum Corps competition at Trumbull High School’s McDougall Stadium in the evening at 4:30 P.M. with $20 Admission to The Barnum Festival.

The final day, Sunday, July 1st, will be a spectacular culmination of all festivities with a full day of carnival rides, amusement games, food trucks, band music, car show, and ending with a fantastic fireworks display. Sunday hours will be 1 p.m. – 11 p.m.

Ride bracelets will be available for purchase each day! Bracelets will be $25 Thursday and Friday and $30 on Sunday. Bracelets on Sunday will be honored from 1 PM until 6 PM. Tickets will be needed after 6 PM on Sunday. Please visit Dreamland Amusement website for a $5 off coupon:

Food trucks will line up for almost any food craving on Thursday, Friday and Sunday!  Live music will entertain the crowd, and the beer and wine tent will be open near the stage in a shared section for food, libations and vibrations.


Tesoro continues, “I campaigned on the promise to bring Trumbull Day back to its proper time of year and that is exactly what I am doing. I am now asking the people of Trumbull to volunteer their time and skills to help organize and run the event to make it spectacular. If you are interested in volunteering, please let us know. We cannot do it without you!”
