This year, First Night Hartford will be turning our 32nd annual New Year’s celebration into a robust television broadcast, Facebook and Youtube livestream, and live Zoom workshops. First Night Hartford 2021 will not be hosting any in-person events but will be embarking on the creation of an innovative virtual experience to be held on December 31, 2020. With the hope of bringing our communities safely together to ring in the new year, First Night Hartford will create a broadcast and livestream experience alongside dozens of community partners, artists, and a local video production company.
The First Night Hartford 2021 button is a great way to support First Night Hartford, and get to keep a piece of this year’s remarkable button design by Hartford-based graphic designer, Lindaluz Carrillo.
New for this year, the First Night Hartford Party Kit was created in collaboration with our friends at Hartford Prints! A fun way for the whole family to ring in the New Year! First Night Hartford’s Party Kit includes a coloring book, party masks, temporary tattoos, crayons, and an activity book with the following: word search, crossword puzzle, madlibs, connect the dots, maze, matching, and scavenger hunt.
Ski ‘Til Midnight & Parade Watch
Ski in the New Year at Ski Sundown with a torchlight parade a few minutes before the clock strikes 12 midnight; food and drink specials. Night lift tickets will be extended to six hours (6 p.m.-midnight) for no extra charge.
TheaterWorks is providing a discounted streaming of “Christmas on the Rocks” when you pair it with a winter-themed meal from our participating Downtown restaurant partners: Vaughan’s Public House, Republic at the Linden, or Artichoke Basille Pizza.
The specially curated meals will come in holiday-themed packaging and will be available for pickup at the restaurant locations, so you can take them home for a special night in with loved ones.
