Capital Arts Fest Returns to Concord this Fall

Between September 27th and 29th, the League of NH Craftsmen will turn the streets of downtown Concord, NH, into the Capital Arts Fest, an event that features the best of NH arts & crafts. During the three days, the festival will gather unique art pieces, demonstrations plus food and music, all in the same venue: the headquarters of the League, on Main Street. 

A juried craft fair right in the reborn downtown, the event will include not only members of the League but artisans and vendors from all over New England. The Exhibition Gallery at League Headquarters will feature “Then and Now – How Far We’ve Come”, showcasing the early and recent work of our juried members – highlighting their journey as craftmen. The Gallery will be open extended hours to coincide with the Capital Arts Fest.

From 5 PM to 8 PM on Friday; from 10 AM to 5 PM on Saturday and from 10 AM to 4 PM on Sunday the festival continues with free performances, fine food from local food establishments and the best of local craft beer. 

The League of New Hampshire Craftsmen has nine galleries featuring hand-made crafts and promoting arts classes and workshops for all ages and levels of experience. The Capital Arts Fest comes in a partnership between the League, the City of Concord and the Concord Chamber of Commerce’s “Creative Concord Committee” 

The League has been working for over eight decades in promoting and preserving traditional arts and crafts around the state. They help local artists to promote their work, improve their technique and encourage other to explore the artists in them.
