Night Fall is a free, celebratory event taking place in one of Hartford’s beautiful and historic parks each October. Featuring local artists, performers and children, the production has become a highly anticipated annual event. In an idyllic urban park setting, lights glitter as Anne Cubberly’s giant puppets herald the end of autumn and the dawn of winter. Communities converge in a lavish performance of spoken word, dance, puppetry and music, culminating in a lighted lantern procession. Night Fall is a festival of theater, pageantry, movement and music as well as a uniquely Hartford celebration of nature, our shared history and most importantly, our communities.
