The Holiday Season Starts Today With Glow Hartford

Join us at the Connecticut Convention Center for a magical family night

November 25th, 2022 (Hartford, CT): Hartford is the newest host of the dazzling and successful holiday light festival: Hartford Glow. Starting today, the Connecticut Convention Center will be transformed into a stunning Christmas wonderland.

Hartfordians will enjoy hours and hours of yuletide fun at Glow. Our main attraction – the magical light gardens – is a spectacular landscape to stroll through. This is the perfect venue to get some of this season’s best photos! Explore the lighted grounds and find the Enchanted Forest, Santa’s Playground, Arctic Circle, Northern Lights, and more!

Other than taking in the stunning sights and getting snapshots with (or of) the many light structures, there are other fun activities to enjoy too. Find just the right holiday presents or tokens to give to loved ones (or keep them as memorabilia) at the Christmas market. Grab a bite (or two!) and take your pick among the selection of seasonal food and drink. Live entertainment will be there to enjoy too as you wind down and stay merry.

For Glow Hartford’s debut season, the theme is Santa’s Perfect Gift. Kids are invited to join a yuletide scavenger hunt and help find the 4 missing elves. Tinsel, Chestnut, Jingle, and Jangle have gone to various fantastic places in search of the perfect gift for the jolliest fellow, but it’s almost Christmas and they’re running out of time. Find the elves hidden across the grounds, collect stamps, and discover what Santa’s Perfect Gift is.

Glow Hartford will run from November 25th, 2022 to January 1st, 2023 at the Connecticut Convention Center. Adults, Children, Family, and Senior, Military, Police, EMS, and Veterans Passes are available.
