On July 16, 1776, the Dunlap Broadside of the Declaration of Independence arrived in Exeter from Philadelphia — and the celebrations still aren’t over. Witness historical reenactments, listen to a public reading of the Declaration and enjoy entertainment throughout the town.
This popular annual celebration of American independence features historic role-players, children’s activities, colonial and loyalist militias, a procession with General George Washington, a traditional artisan village, cannons firing, food and drink and much more. While many families come as far away as 50 miles, some come from as far south as Boston and Providence, as the entire historic town of Exeter welcomes 3,000+ for the day.
