Glow Hartford Illuminates Your Way Into the Christmas Season

The Connecticut Convention Center is illuminating the downtown Hartford area with Glow Hartford. Glow Hartford is an indoor holiday light festival and market where guests can walk around, enjoy holiday confections, and of course, take plenty of pictures.

Glow Hartford has been illuminating the Connecticut Convention Center since November 25, 2022 and will run daily through January 1, 2023. If you do end up deciding to go, I highly recommend going during the week, because you can save 30 percent off your tickets.

There are several different locations of Glow, however, the Hartford one seems to be the only one located in the U.S. Glow has different entry times that you can go in, there is no time limit whatsoever. They have a lengthy FAQ section, so I highly recommend checking that out if you’re considering going.

First and foremost, let’s talk about the lights. The Connecticut Convention Center is lit up with so many gorgeous lights — with Christmas trees, reindeer and of course, Santa himself. There are different sections of lights with various winter and Christmas themes. And, each of these sections are perfect for taking pictures. If anything, I’d say that the lights alone are worth the trip alone. And, there are a ton of great spots to snap a cute pic for the ‘gram. And to add onto the Christmas spirit, Santa himself makes an appearance in case anyone wants to share a Christmas list.

Secondly, there is a little section at the end of it that sells so many different types of food, including fried dough, Mac and cheese, candy, and pizza. I am lactose intolerant so there was not a ton of dairy free options, but there were definitely a few to choose from. In addition to the food, the drinks deserve their own little shoutout. For the price of $8, you can purchase a souvenir cup that is shaped like a Christmas bulb that actually lights up. They also have a few signature drinks as well.

Finally, Glow Hartford has a cute little market full of handmade goods for you to purchase, as well as merch.

I went to Glow Hartford a few days ago with my friends, and I am so blown away from the event. It was definitely the perfect event to go to to get into the Christmas spirit, and I believe that there is truly something for kids from 1 to 92. You can purchase your Glow Hartford tickets here.
