New Hampshire has several winter carnivals in January and February, the most famous being the one at Dartmouth College, where elaborate ice sculptures are featured. Music festivals are another popular diversion in New Hampshire, including the All-State Music Festival, in April; the annual Stark Fiddlers’ Contest, in June; and the Pemi Valley Bluegrass Festival, in Campton each August. The state’s crafts are featured during the Sheep and Wool Festival, held each May in New Boston, and the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen’s crafts fair, which takes place at Mount Sunapee in August. In September the Highland Games are competed at Loon Mountain in Lincoln, horse races are held at Rockingham Park in Salem in both spring and fall, and antique and classic automobiles are featured at the Fall Foliage Tour each October in Charlestown.

Throughout New Hampshire the visitor will find well-preserved 18th-century towns, many of which still have white wooden churches, public greens or commons, and early homes. Some of the historic sites in the state include the Franklin Pierce Homestead in Hillsboro, the birthplace of Daniel Webster near Franklin, the Wentworth-Coolidge Mansion near Portsmouth, which was the residence of New Hampshire’s royal governor, and the Robert Frost farm at Derry. Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site preserves the home and studio in Cornish of Augustus Saint-Gaudens, one of the country’s noted sculptors. Strawbery Banke, at Portsmouth, is a restored maritime community dating from the 1630s. New Hampshire has 53 covered bridges dating from the 19th century.
