Winterfest Hartford brings over 100,000 visitors into Bushnell Park for free ice-skating, free ice skate rentals, free photos with Santa, free skating lessons and more. Winterfest-related programming strengthen’s the relationship we have with our cultural partners while bringing more visibility to both our partners and Winterfest. We worked with the XL Center on a Wolf Pack Skate Night; HYPE Hartford on the Ugly Sweater Stroll and the organizers of First Night Hartford. Winterfest 2015 is closed for the season, but we look forward to November 2016. It will be bigger, better and more fun than it was last year.
