The iQuilt Partnership announced Monday that Winterfest Hartford’s skating rink will not open this year due to COVID-19.
The iQuilt Partnership announced Monday that the Winterfest Skating Rink in Bushnell Park will not open for the 2020-2021 season.
Citing the rise in the positive cases in Connecticut, organizers have decided to cancel this year and focus on bringing Winterfest Hartford back next year with expanded programming and an extended skating season.
Winterfest Hartford has brought free ice skating, free skate rentals, and free learn-to-skate lessons to Bushnell Park for the past 10 years.
“Unfortunately, we will not be able to bring this amazing family activity back to the capital city given the rising number of COVID cases,” said iQuilt Partnership Executive Director Jackie Mandyck. “Winterfest Hartford is a wonderful Hartford tradition, and it will be back next year, bigger and better.”
