2012 Events & Activities

9th Annual Antrim Home & Harvest Festival — September 14-16, 2012

This autumn, spend a weekend visiting the Antrim Home & Harvest Festival, a fall festival here in beautiful and historic downtown Antrim, New Hampshire. This traditional New England harvest festival features arts & crafts, a home-grown parade, fireworks by Atlas Pyrotechnics, kids games, live music and lots of food. The non-traditional part of the festival is our skateboard race, the Antrim Can/Am Slalom Championships, one of the largest of its kind in North America. Admission to most events is free (food extra) and you'll find something for everyone in the family.
