Intown Concord’s 40th Annual Market Days Festival
Thursday, July 17 through Saturday, July 19, 10:00am to 10:00pm daily.
Intown Concord’s 40th Annual Market Days Festival returns to historic downtown Concord, New Hampshire, this summer – Thursday, July 17 through Saturday, July 19, 10:00am to 10:00pm daily. This FREE event features food, shopping, music, 150+ vendors...36 hours of community fun!
During Market Days, a half-mile of Main Street and side streets are closed to vehicle traffic, turning downtown Concord into a pedestrian boulevard lined with some 150 vendors offering a vast array of food and shopping options. The unique festival experience is enhanced by the participation of dozens of downtown businesses that bring their wares out into the street and serve up delicious local food.
Additional popular festival attractions include live music and entertainment in Bicentennial and Eagle squares, Free Family Fun activities on the State House Lawn, a beer tent, bouncy houses & kiddie race track with Cowabunga’s, outdoor movies on Friday and Saturday with Red River Theatres, classic car show on Friday afternoon, community performances, the Concord Arts Market, and much more. New this year – Market Days Mini Golf, a totally unique putt-putt experience featuring golf holes built by local companies.

Concord Farmer's Market
Saturday's, 8:30 - noon, Capitol Street (next to the State Capitol Building)
Concord Arts Market
1 Bicentennial Square, Saturday's 9 am - 3 pm
Concord Market is New Hampshire's original outdoor, weekly, juried artisan craft and fine arts market. This season we will run nearly every Saturday (except Labor Day Weekend) from 9am to 3pm, in our usual home, Bicentennial Square, in downtown Concord, NH. This year's market series will run from the end of May to the end of September.
This year, we have opened a new category at the market: Factory alternatives. Factory alternatives can be any goods that typically are mass-produced and factory made, but which happen to be handmade in our region. We feel this is in keeping with our mission to encourage interest in "shopping local" as well as our support of the handmade community.
We also have great music booked throughout the upcoming season, and some special events that you will want to keep an eye on (the CAM Veggie Fest, and Pet Day, yes, with canine elections this year).
