New Hampshirites celebrate their passions at the broadest array of festivals imaginable, from June's annual Laconia Motorcycle Week to October's Warner Fall Foliage Festival. Both have been New Hampshire traditions for more decades than you've probably been alive.
Visitors' favorite festivals focus on all that makes New Hampshire one of a kind: moose, maple sugaring, seafood, craft brews, ATVing, pumpkin chucking, craftsmanship, lupines. And we've been home for over 40 years to the New Hampshire Highland Games, one of the largest Scottish festivals in the nation.
