WINSTED —  This year’s crowning of the Laurel King and Queen will be held at Little Red Barn Brewery on Tuesday, June 29 at 6 p.m.

The town tradition goes back almost 90 years. 

This year, a majority of the candidates attend The Gilbert School, along with Riley Webb who attends Northwestern Regional High School. Here are biographies of all the candidates, along with their essays on “What Winsted means to me.”
