The Feast of San Gennaro takes place on the Danbury Green From Wednesday August 23rd to Sunday August 27th. There will be dozens of food vendors, live music, rides, kids games, beer, wine and so much more.

Now let's get real. I love Danbury, it is my home so I know that the parking can be difficult. This is why event organizers went above and beyond to make it much easier on folks coming to the event.

Where Do I Park?  

There is parking in the Patriot Garage directly across the street from the Danbury green where the event takes place but event organizers secured more, in anticipation of an even bigger crowd this year. We spoke to AJ Galante about the additional parking, this is what he told us:

"Lucky Enough we actually have the Patriot Garage right across the street but that gets packed. So, you have the Metro-North station that is not that far from there and then we were lucky enough to make a deal with West Conn (WCSU) with their garage on 5th avenue there. And, we're offering, like we did last year a free shuttle, I believe it's going to go to-and-from Ives Street every 15-20 minutes something like that." 

Places You Can Park Full List:

  • Patriot Garage - 1 Patriot Drive, Danbury, CT
  • West Conn 5th Avenue Garage - 1-35, 5th Avenue Danbury, CT (Shuttle Service Available)
  • Danbury's Metro-North lot - 1 Patriot Drive, Danbury, CT: Across the street from the Patriot Garage
  • Charles A. Bardo Parking Garage - 10 Library Place, Danbury CT
  • Street Parking - You can grab street parking wherever you can find it.

I'll see you at the Festival! I'm walking because I live Downtown.

Ridgefield Playhouse Exec Shares Revealing Tales About Richards and More

The Ridgefield Playhouse and I-95 have had a longstanding and fruitful business relationship.The Playhouse, it's leadership and staff have always been welcoming to us and we like to think we've been good to them as well.

I've been doing the I-95 Morning Show for 15 years and in that time I've had so many wonderful memories in that building. We performed our Ethan and Lou 10 year Anniversary concert there, I've met countless celebrities at the Playhouse and have attended many of their shows.

Many of the top flight guests we've booked on the I-95 Morning Show have been courtesy of our association with the Playhouse. But it wasn't just the rock stars that got invited to our studio, the people behind the curtain have always been regular guests on our shows.

Jared Shahid is the new Managing Director at the Ridgefield Playhouse but not a new face to us. Ethan and I have hung with him backstage, we've had him in the studio and he and I even worked on a TV project together.

Jared is one of the best storytellers I know so we were delighted to invite him back on the show. Recently, Shahid joined us on the the I-95 Morning Show with Ethan, Lou & Dave. Whenever he comes in, he brings tickets and stories for our audience. These are some of the amazing behind the scenes tales he shared with us on Thursday (5/25/23).
