Celebrate! West Hartford

Celebrate! West Hartford canceled for 2021

In coordination with West Hartford town leaders, the Celebrate! West Hartford Committee and staff regret to announce that the Celebrate! West Hartford festival will not take place in 2021. Although everyone is eager for life to return to normal, when an event like this poses minimal threat to public health, the reality is that no one can guarantee that COVID-19 will be under control well enough to hold the event this year. This difficult decision was made with an abundance of caution to protect our community.

The Committee and staff will now refocus their efforts on plans which allow for physical distancing while also supporting local businesses, artists and other organizations, to raise money for The Town That Cares and the Leisure Services Scholarship Funds which serve people in need in our community. More information to come.

Celebrate! West Hartford 2022 is scheduled for June 11-12, 2022, and we look forward to seeing everyone in person then!


Attracting nearly 40,000 people each year from the greater Hartford area, Celebrate! West Hartford also provides festival attendees with a wide range of family activities – a highly rated juried arts & crafts show, great food, entertainment, games, carnival rides, a certified 5K road race and Kids Fun Run. The two-day community fair presents businesses, civic and service organizations, recreation groups and charitable foundations a way to increase public awareness of their important work.  There is no admission charge for the event and many of the activities are free.  Celebrate! West Hartford garnered awards for Best Local Annual Event by Hartford Magazine in 2010 to 2015 and 2017 to 2019.

Entertainment on Saturday includes performances by numerous local school jazz ensembles.  Professional bands perform on Sunday afternoon. Celebrate West Hartford garnered awards in the Best Festival and Best Local Annual Event categories by Hartford Magazine for several years in a row.
