American Independence Festival General Information

Each summer, 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 occurs on the Saturday closest to July 16 and is now in its 29th year. 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.

This year, 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.
