What is a Sister City?

A sister city, county, or state relationship is a broad-based, long-term partnership between two communities in two countries. A sister city, county, or state relationship is officially recognized after the highest elected or appointed official from both communities sign off on an agreement.

A city may have any number of sister cities, with community involvement ranging from a half dozen to hundreds of volunteers. In addition to volunteers, sister city organizations may include representatives from nonprofits, municipal governments, the private sector, and other civic organizations.

Sister city relationships offer the flexibility to form connections between communities that are mutually beneficial and which address issues that are most relevant for partners.

Hartford Sister Cities

Cenon, France
One Nature, many Cultures. That is what comes to mind when you live or visit the Community of Cenon. Big public parks, beautiful architectural cultural buildings of great quality like the "Rocher de Palmer", and cobblestone streets flourishing with flowers. Squares and remarkable trees mimic the movements of the Community of Cenon. Visit Cenon's Website to learn more about Hartford's Sister City.
