Event Description:

Capital Arts Fest took place in front of the Headquarters of the League of NH Craftsmen and the Capitol Center for the Arts from September 28th – 30th, 2018.  The event was a great success and we are so thankful to all of our participants for their involvement as well as to all of the members of the community who came out to support us.

The League partnered with the City of Concord, the Concord Chamber of Commerce’s “Creative Concord Committee” and the Capitol Center for the Arts to produce this event.
