Winterfest Hartford will be bigger, and better, when free ice skating, skate rentals and more return to Bushnell Park in November of 2021. Will you help to make it happen?
We understand that not all of you will be able to support us this year, but even sharing our fundraising link helps! Donate, share the link with those who can, or both.
Thank you so much.
So, who uses the rink and why do they deserve your donation?
Moms and Dads teaching their kids to skate.
Teenagers who don't have other teen-centric activities to keep them occupied.
Nervous young men about to propose to their girlfriends in the middle of the rink.
Families who can't afford a big Christmas vacation when school is out and instead go skating every day.
Suburban families who combine it with a trip to the Wadsworth or a local restaurant, who walk away thinking that Hartford is pretty cool.
Folks looking for a healthy, active alternative to Christmas cookies.
Residents who want to bring their visiting families to something fun.
Anyone who wants to break up the long Connecticut winter with joy, music, laughter, and community.
People of every age, ethnicity, class, gender, and religion. It is truly the place that everyone hits up at least once every winter.
I use it.
You use it. And if you don't, you should, because it's awesome.
Every dollar counts, so please consider donating and sharing today.
