The Hartford Region boasts top-rated restaurants and a thriving after-hours scene. Crowds flock to the city for annual events such as the Greater Hartford Festival of Jazz, Guitar Under the Stars, and Small State Great Beer Festival, which features nearly 50 Connecticut breweries from the Greater Hartford region. Hartford is also home to Riverfront Recapture, which connects the Connecticut River to Hartford County through parks, programming, public art, and rowing programs.
