 About Special Events in the City of Hartford

 Recently, the City of Hartford, like many American cities has been adjusting to the new economic reality of smaller budgets and reduced staff. The City of Hartford is working hard and making great strides to trim costs and institute systems that put the city on firm financial footing. To this end, it’s become apparent the city must limit event subsidies and insist event organizers cover all costs associated with their events. Working together, we can find ways of reducing costs while maximizing the success of our diverse and culturally rich events. The City of Hartford is pleased to host your special event. The use of our public spaces for weddings, reunions, festivals, and competitions adds a rich vitality to city living. Please review the information below and know our courteous staff is available to answer any questions you may have.
