November 29 – December 30, 2013

Stew Leonard’s in Newington (3475 Berlin Turnpike, Newington, Conn.) is ringing in the holiday season with a slate of twelve family-friendly activities starting the day after Thanksgiving!


Elf Workshops, with activities like decorating gingerbread houses and making holiday greeting cards, are free of charge and are held in Stew Leonard’s party room on the second floor of the grocery store.

A fee is charged for the children’s cooking classes, which are also held in the party room. Price is per child per class, which is payable at the time of registration. Children do not need to be accompanied by an adult, except for the class for toddlers, which requires an adult to supervise their little one.


To register for any of the Elf Workshops or cooking classes or for any customer questions, please call Stew Leonard’s customer service desk at 860-760-8100.
