Chili & Maple Cook-Off - POSTPONED


UPDATE: In light of COVID-19, the Chili & Maple Dessert Cook-Off will be postponed until May. The Cook-Off is intended to be a fun community event, and we feel that holding off is the best course of action. Stay healthy and stay tuned for the new date!

The Waterbury Rotary Club is sponsoring a Chili & Maple Dessert Cook-Off to celebrate the great cooks in our community and to share great food with our friends and neighbors. Entries are welcome from local restaurants, bakeries, dessert makers, and other talented cooks. Prizes will be awarded for the best chilis and desserts based upon popularity as voted by attendees.

Join the annual Waterbury Easter Parade and Egg Hunt! Meet at Thatcher Brook Primary School for the parade led by the Easter Bunny and Waterbury Fire Department. The parade finishes at Pilgrim Park, across the railroad tracks behind the Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Cafe. Thousands of eggs await the kids split into age groups. If you can't manage the walk, be prepared for the egg hunt to start at 11:00 am. Free family fun!

A community favorite. Join us every Thursday from June - August in Rusty Parker Memorial Park for awesome music and free Ben & Jerry's ice cream (Bring your own bowl for an extra scoop).


(Not Quite Independence Day) Parade, music, bites & brews, fireworks and more. A Waterbury tradition and our largest fund raiser for all our community doings. Held annually on the Saturday before Independence Day.


Start those sunflowers off early - the search for the tallest sunflower is on! Held annually on the second Thursday in September.

Santa stops by each year in early December to spread some holiday cheer with cookies, activities, and horse-drawn wagon rides.
