Winterfest Hartford will open for its TENTH YEAR on November 29, 2019. It brings free ice skating, free skate rentals, free skating lessons, free photos with Santa and more to Bushnell Park for six magical, wonder-filled weeks. It also brings over 100,000 visitors into our Capital City each year, and that number is growing each year. And while this inclusive, city-changing holiday tradition costs nothing to residents or visitors, and creates jobs, it costs almost $300,000 to produce. Your donation will keep this tradition alive; it will teach hundreds of kids (of all ages) to skate, it will provide thousands of families with keepsake Santa photos, and so much more.
