Great River Park
There’s lots of food, music and fireworks to be found around the state in July. Celebrate America’s independence in style with these patriotic parties.
For the 32nd year in a row, Riverfest promises family fun spanning three parks in Hartford and East Hartford, all within walking distance of each other. Enjoy free entertainment, a fireworks display and delicious fair food with the whole family. Presented by Mohegan Sun, Riverfest is a standing tradition for Riverfront Recapture, which oversees four parks covering 148 acres along four miles of Connecticut River shoreline. Recapture’s trails, amphitheater, boat launch and excursion boat ride along with a growing list of amenities, festivals and attractions make for a destination like no other, especially during its 4th of July celebration.
