Celebrate! West Hartford 2021 Events Go Virtual!
(March 14, 2021) The Celebrate! West Hartford Committee and staff are pleased to announce plans for a Virtual Arts & Crafts Show and Virtual FUNd RUNS.
Virtual Arts & Crafts Show

West Hartford exhibitors as well as artisans from across the country new to our event. Call for Artists! Click here for more information and to learn how to participate as a vendor.
FUNd Runs - Run Apart * Give Together!
The Virtual FUNd RUNS—Run Apart * Give Together—returns this year with two great events: a Virtual Run/Walk 5K (June 4-13) and a month-long Distance Challenge (June 1-30). Click here to learn about the Distance Challenge. Proceeds from these special events will support West Hartford residents through The Town That Cares and the Leisure Services Scholarship Fund, town administered funds which help our neighbors in need.

Celebrate! West Hartford has a long tradition of providing opportunities for family fun & special memories, and we also strive to support our community in a meaningful way. We are seeking business sponsors to help defray the costs of advertising, technology, giveaways and other expenses, so our proceeds can support two worthy causes: the Leisure Services Scholarship Fund, which helps send kids to camp and swimming lessons, and The Town That Cares which serves neighbors in need during times of crisis.

Celebrate! West Hartford canceled for 2021
(January 28, 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!
