Visiting New Hampshire
As the late summer yields to fall and winter in New Hampshire, you’ll discover a wide range of excellent things to see and do, premier festivals to experience, and a batch of charming towns and cities to visit. Plan your next excursion through the Granite State for late 2016 and see as much as you can.
Much of New England will be awash in autumn hues this fall, and New Hampshire is no different. You’ll find an array of parks, natural areas, and forests where you can enjoy a stroll or a hike, all the while basking in the incredible fall foliage. In Franconia you’ll want to explore the Franconia Notch State Park, while Concord can yield quick and easy trips to the nearby Bear Brook State Park.
One of Concords premier fall events is the SNOB Film Festival. The “Somewhat North of Boston” Film Fest takes place November 12th to 15th at the Red River Theatres – you’ll see independent film screenings, hear guest speakers, and be treated to craft beer samples, and live music. It’s one of Concord’s favorite celebrations during the fall and you’re invited.
Just to the north of Concord, the city of Laconia will be hosting the 2016 New Hampshire Pumpkin Festival. Since 1991, the New Hampshire Pumpkin Festival was held in Keene, but 2014 saw the end of that era. And after skipping 2015 to find a new home, the NH Pumpkin Festival is back and better than ever in 2016. On October 22nd you can check out this impressive pumpkin patch fest, where locals and guests will try to amass the most jack-o’-lanterns in one area for a world record.
Be sure to plan your visit to New Hampshire with a stay in Manchester in mind. The Verizon Wireless Center will be the place to be on October 26th when two of the most iconic bands perform. Earth, Wind and Fire will be performing live, and as a treat, Chicago will also play some of their hits. It all starts at 7:30 p.m.
Plan for an evening of excellent live theatre when you visit Keene this fall. Make your way to the Redfern Arts Center on the Keene State College campus to see a live production of A Dream Play. From November 16th to 19th, you can see this August Strindberg-penned play about dreams and the subconscious. Performances start at 7:30 p.m., and tickets range from $8 to $10.
As 2016 edges closer and closer to 2017, be sure to visit Portsmouth. The Strawberry Banke Museum will be sponsoring and hosting their annual Candlelight Stroll – A Vintage Christmas in Portsmouth across several weekends in December. You’ll explore New Hampshire’s oldest and, arguably, most historic waterfront neighborhood. Exact dates are December 3rd and 4th, 10th and 11th, and 16th through 18th.
