Frog Frolic Family Festival
May 14 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
The Mark Twain Library is excited to announce the return of the Frog Frolic! After a three-year hiatus due to the pandemic, this fun filled family outdoor festival is making its triumphant return on Saturday, May 14th. This extra special day of family fun is in its 25th year and will bring back some mainstay activities as well as introduce new attractions geared for kids anywhere from age 3 to 103! Sit back and listen to music, bid on something in the silent auction, take a bite out of yummy eats, play games, get creative making crafts, jump in the bouncers…and more!
The Frolic takes place outdoors amid Redding’s rolling hills just outside the Redding Community Center. All proceeds benefit the Mark Twain Library. The Library was founded by Samuel Clemens – Mark Twain, himself — in 1908. Twain moved to Redding, CT, in 1907. The Frog Frolic takes its name from the infamous short story by Twain, The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County.
