Let's Get Started!


Time to start planning the 41st Annual Market Days Festival in downtown Concord, NH -- three fun-filled days in the heart of the Capital city -- July 2015!

DATE: The exact date is not set yet. Because the Main Street Project will be underway, we are waiting for the construction schedule from City staff. Market Days will be on a Thursday-Friday-Saturday in July 2015; stay tuned.

VENDORS: Vendor info will be out by mid-February. Watch this page for details and links. Last year's info is linked below, if you're new to Market Days and would like to get a sense of vendor guidelines, timelines, fees, etc.
