Bushnell Park Carousel
1 Jewell Street

Tickets –  $20 in advance/$25 at the door


What better way to liven up a cold winter than with a warm evening inside Bushnell Park’s colorful, glittery, celebrated carousel? Round up some friends, saddle up your favorite steed, “grab the brass ring” and win some fun BPF swag! Join us on February 8 to show your support for our historic park, an oasis in the heart of Downtown Hartford.

The Bushnell Park Foundation invites you to a fun and festive evening in the park that we all use and love so much. Your ticket includes delicious fare from our friends at Salute, cash bar, and unlimited rides on the carousel.

With the promise of warmer weather coming soon, we’ll share info on park projects including the new playground, repairs to the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Arch and how we are caring for our magnificent and notable trees. Tom Baptist, Superintendent of Parks for the city will be at the event, along with John Hollerbach from Creative Recreation, our playground design company.

As the site of hundreds of events each year, Bushnell Park is one of the most popular destinations in the state and a treasure for the surrounding communities. For over 35 years, the Bushnell Park Foundation has worked to preserve and enhance this historic treasure in the heart of downtown.

Although this event is geared towards adults since there will be a cash bar, everyone is welcome.  Kids are $5 at the door, no advance tix needed for them.
