This event was held on Thursday, July 4, 2019.
Bring a picnic lunch and listen to live music, sign the Declaration of Independence after a re-enactor brings it by horseback! Watch as John Taylor Gilman reads the Declaration of Independence to the crowd, which includes a few British hecklers. There may even be some musket fire.
Play games, eat strawberry shortcake, make your own ice cream, and take a wagon ride!

Richie’s Famous Hot Dog Cart will be on site for food
When Dunlap Printing Company sent a copy of the Declaration of Independence from Philadelphia to New Hampshire’s war-time capital of Exeter, John Taylor Gilman was the first person to read it to the crowds.
