Allison’s Greatest Hits

Allison Stockel, Executive Director of The Ridgefield Playhouse is an expert on all things cultural in Ridgefield. Here are her top picks.

Cultural venue:
The Ridgefield Playhouse (of course!). I love that we have all aspects of the performing arts-, music, Broadway/cabaret, comedy, children’s theater, acrobats & circus shows, speakers, dance, film-its one place that is the cultural hub of town

Romantic dinner:

Place to run:
The Ridgefield Rail Trail behind the Theater Barn and the Ridgefield Guild of Artists

Nonprofit organization:
All of them. We have so many great non profits in this town, including of course The Ridgefield Playhouse, that do so many great things for the town- not only the arts, but everything from Meals on Wheels to Ridgefield A Better Chance to Lounsbury House and more. 

Community event:
The Nutmeg Festival that St. Stephens does each summer as well as the Rotary Club’s Taste of Ridgefield every January.

So many! Everywhere on Main Street, Audrey Road, and Turkey Ridge. That’s only a few-there are so many great boutique stores!

Spa day:
Adam Broderick

Sucre Sale-I love their breakfast crepes!

Luc’s Cafe and Restaurant. Its like being in Paris!

Ballard Park for people and the Bark Park for my dog!
