American Independence Festival Goes Local

Each July, the American Independence Museum hosts the American Independence Festival to celebrate the arrival and reading of the Declaration of Independence to the citizens of Exeter, New Hampshire. The event encompasses the entire museum campus, Water Street, and Swasey Parkway. Militia, colonial artisans, local makers, and local food purveyors are part of the dynamic event that brings over 4,000 visitors to Exeter.
The Museum is accepting applications from local makers, businesses, and non-profits interested in having a vendor booth during the event. The museum is focused on celebrating the talents and creativity of local makers from New Hampshire, northern Massachusetts and southern Maine. Particular focus will be paid to those vendors from the greater Exeter and Seacoast area of New Hampshire.
