HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

It’s that time of the year again for Winterfest, and the city of Hartford is hoping to entice people to visit the annual celebration with free on-street parking.

The city will modify the metered parking spots around Bushnell Park starting on Friday, 11/25, through Jan. 8.

The specific street locations are:

  • Elm Street from Trinity Street to Hudson Street
  • Trinity Street from Elm Street to Jewell Street
  • Jewell Street from Trinity Street to Trumbull Street (although please note that parking along Jewell Street may be closed periodically through December until the completion of TIGER project construction)

The parking modification details are:

  • No-parking from 3:30 to 6:00 p.m. restrictions on Trinity Street will be lifted for the duration of Winterfest Hartford from Friday, November 25, 2016 through Sunday, January 8, 2017. (Restriction remains in effect on Elm Street)
  • As always, when legally parked, on-street parking in the City of Hartford is free after 6:00 p.m. on weeknights and all day on weekends
  • Parkers are reminded to take note of any limitations noted by signage in close proximity to selected on-street spaces

Officials said additional free off-street parking is available after 5 p.m. at the State of Connecticut surface parking lots located on West Street and along Capitol Avenue, which gives visitors easy access to the ice skating rink.

Additional paid off-street parking is available near Pulaski Circle.
