Upstairs, Downtown Walking Tour

Upstairs-Downtown-LogoComing Sept. 17...

Intown Concord's 7th Annual Upstairs, Downtown Walking Tour: Thursday, September 17, 5:15 to 8:00 pm

This year only, this exclusive event is called the UPSTAIRS, DOWNTOWN, UNDERGROUND Walking Tour! ...and it has a slight twist, with the addition of a unique “underground” space to the tour, and a chance for participants to converse with members of the construction crew and the City of Concord engineering and economic development teams. Top it off with a wine-and-cheese reception in the Eagle Square Atrium at the end of the tour. It is shaping up to be a fascinating, one-of-a-kind tour experience!

This event is SOLD OUT!

Thanks to everyone who purchased a ticket for Thursday, and sorry to disappoint those who missed out this time. Only 100 tickets were sold, and walk-up tickets for the tour are NOT available. We do have reception-only tickets for $10 each; the reception starts at Eagle Square Atrium at about 7:00pm, and tickets may be purchased at the door.

Ticket-holders: PLEASE MEET at the top of the fountain at Eagle Square, off North Main Street, at 5:15, to sign a liability waiver; tour departs promptly at 5:30! We recommend parking in either the Durgin or Firehouse garage.


PLEASE NOTE: Tour locations are not accessible for those with mobility issues. Attendees should wear appropriate footwear for uneven terrain; we will be in an active construction zone. Upstairs, Downtown, Underground is a rain-or-shine event.

If you'd like to be involved behind the scenes as a sponsor or volunteer, please contact us at 603-226-2150 or info [at] intownconcord [.] org.

Volunteers are needed to help run this fun event. We need tour guides, site hosts, and helpers for the post-tour reception. Sign up today by clicking on the VolunteerSpot box. Thank you!
