Join Hartford at its belated 100-year centennial celebration on Saturday, May 21! Founded in 1920, the Hartford Centennial fell during the spring of 2020- the celebration has been on hold since then, but is coming to the village in style for 2022! The festivities kick off at 10 AM with a parade and a car cruise-in. After the parade and cruise in, a craft and vendor show will begin. Food trucks, a beer tent, free inflatables for kids, a petting zoo, a cornhole tournament, and Riverbend Axe Throwing will all be at the village birthday, as well as live music from 11 AM - 9 PM- all concluding in a fireworks show! Bring the family to get a bite to eat, shop local, listen to music, and celebrate 100 years of Hartford!
