Winterfest Press Event
November 17, 2017

We are so thrilled that Winterfest will once again be held in Bushnell Park this year...thanks to your generous support. We will be having a  See more

BENEFITING: IQUILT PARTNERSHIP INC

EVENT DATE: Jun 20, 2017

THE STORY:

If you've been to the ice rink in Bushnell Park, you know how special it is. The Winterfest Skating Rink is a Hartford success story: for the past few years, it has brought families, friends, teens, kids, and adventurers to Bushnell Park for free skating (with free rentals!). It's simple, and it's beautiful. About half of the skaters are from Hartford, and the other half are from surrounding towns and tourists. It's precisely the vision of Hartford we've all wanted to see.  


Direct Donations. If you are more comfortable donating directly, you can mail a check to The iQuilt Partnership, 31 Pratt Street, 5th Floor, Hartford, CT 06103. The best way to help right now is to donate and spread the word. If we can get over $230,000, we will keep the rink open for a longer period. If we get WAY too much, then we will save it for 2018. 


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 in the winter months. Nervous young men about to propose to their girlfriends in the middle of the rink. Families who can't afford a big vacation when school is out and instead go skating every day. Refugee families who take the bus from the South End to celebrate the holidays in the USA for the first time. Suburban families who combine it with a trip to the Wadsworth or a local restaurant, who walk away thinking Hartford is pretty cool... IT IS! 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.
