Spring is finally here! Meaning, you get to spend less time stuck inside, and more time planning fun outdoor activities with friends and family. And, what better way to enjoy the sun and a cold beer than at a Yard Goats game in Connecticut’s Capital City.
Hartford Yard Goats 2017 Season Success
Last year, the city kicked off its first season with the Hartford Yard Goats in the newly constructed Dunkin’ Donuts Park. This award-winning ballpark and the enthusiasm of the Yard Goats has enlivened the spirit and pride of the city, putting the “hart” back into our Hartford sports.
From local on-tap craft beer and incredible Bear’s BBQ to one-of-a-kind in game entertainment, the Yard Goats games offer a family-friendly experience for everyone. Anyone who’s been to one, knows that even when the home team isn’t winning, the crowd will always remain vibrant and alive. These games have shown the true passion of the residents of Hartford and the entire region.
Even if baseball isn’t your sport, the Hartford Yard Goats games have quickly become one of the top things to do in Connecticut, offering more than just baseball, but a memorable experience that brings our Hartford community together.
Besides hosting baseball games, Dunkin Donuts park holds various events for both the whole family, and those looking for something fun to do after work or on the weekends. With a quick walk from downtown Hartford offices to the stadium, professionals can enjoy new and unique outings, other than your typical happy hour affair. During the games, the park makes sure to entertain with activities like ‘Baseball Bingo,’ swag giveaways, and more.
Previously, Dunkin Donuts park hosted the G.O.A.T Brewfest, which highlighted over 30 breweries, food, games and live music set up throughout the stadium. In the batting cages area of the park, they hosted ‘Goat Yoga,’ where goats could come roam freely while you participate in an hour-long class. This year, Dunkin Donuts Park is excited to continue creating inventive and collaborative events and serve as Hartford’s mascot.
Swing into the New Season
The Hartford Yard Goats first opening game of the year will take place on April 5th, and it’s been rumored that there will be special, not to be missed, events happening on this night (other than the fireworks that will take place directly after).
