History

Family Day was created by the Hartford Neighborhood Housing Services (HNHS) to instill pride and increase community involvement in the surrounding neighborhoods in 1985. HNHS ran the event from 1985-1989.

The commitment of the Friends of Keney Park from 1990 –1998 continued the development and growth of this community event.

In January of 1999, Family Day Enterprises, Inc. was formed by a group of people that were dedicated, willing, and able to produce Keney Park Family Day in its 14th year and continue to be committed to the development and growth of this event in our community.

The Keney Park Family Day, is an annual multi-day gathering, attended by thousands. Not only do Hartford's North End community residents participate, but they are also joined by residents from throughout Connecticut, as well as visitors from other states including; New York, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

The intertwining of R & B, Jazz, Gospel, and Reggae music along with other activities; such as providing health & human services information, an abundance of arts & craft vendors, diversified food vendors, educational, recreational & sporting events for the entire family is what gives Family Day its special flavor in our community.
