Come Home To Chester CT


Come Home to Chester for unforgettable art and photography, delicious food, unique apparel and jewelry, great gifts, AND “The Luck of the Draw!”

On Friday, Sept. 20, from 5 to 8 (and sometimes 9) p.m., Chester Center will be bustling with numerous gallery openings, store events, and gift drawings from one end of the Center to the other. This year – the Chester Merchants 23rd Annual Come Home to Chester – colorful balloons will be flying at every business where there’s a Luck of the Draw gift drawing.

All evening, as you peruse the shops and galleries through the Center, meeting old and new friends and enjoying beverages and snacks courtesy of the Chester Merchants, stop to fill out a gift drawing ticket everywhere you see a Visit Chester balloon. The gift drawings will continue through the weekend, ending by 5 p.m. on Sunday.

You might win a $100 gift certificate at the Lion’s Pride, Chester’s new boutique at 4 Maple Street, or a lavender gift basket (an $80 value) at R.J. Vickers Herbery at 26 Water Street. Searobin Technology, a new business at 6 West Main Street, is offering three hours of in-home or business IT consultation and support. Maybe you’ll win a Shawlsmith London Scarf ($65 value) at Red Pepper at 14 Main Street, a $25 gift certificate at the Pattaconk restaurant, cupcakes at the Cupcakery, or an iPod from Stark Agency. At Maple & Main Gallery at 1 Maple Street, a large gift basket will be filled with original paintings, limited edition prints, notecards and much more. Three drawings will be at the Al Malpa Photography Gallery at 4 Spring Street – for a small original framed photograph, a personalized hand-wrought brass “Chester Cat” tag by Pet Endearment Tags, and two books published by the Chester Historical Society. And there are many more!
