Holidays at UConn: Reviving a Hartford Tradition

UConn Hartford revives a beloved capital city tradition with carol singing on the steps of the historic Hartford Times building.

One of Hartford’s most wonderful holiday traditions returned for another year as members of the community descended on UConn Hartford’s campus for the annual Christmas carol sing. The Hartford Times newspaper, located in the main building of what is now UConn Hartford, brought cheer to the capital city in the ‘60s and ‘70s by hosting annual carol singing on its historic steps, and UConn revived the custom in the same location in 2017.
