Winterfest Hartford (iQuilt Partnership)

Free ice skating, free skate rentals, free skating lessons, free photos with Santa, and all of the free programming that happens at Winterfest Hartford in Bushnell Park brings over 40,000 visitors into our Capital City each year, and that number is on the rise! And while this inclusive, city-changing holiday tradition costs nothing to residents or visitors and creates jobs, it costs $275,000. Your donation will teach hundreds of kids (of all ages) to skate, provide thousands of families with keepsake Santa photos, and keep this wonderful holiday tradition in Hartford for another season.
