Get ready for a terrific line-up of Mud, Music & More at the Annual Jericho ATV Festival Presented by Progressive each year in early August. The Festival draws upwards of 6,000 visitors each year.
Beautiful Jericho Mountain State Park is the setting for dozens of daytime events.
Festival organizers work hard concocting just the right mix of earth and water to produce all the oozy mud necessary for the always fun and exciting mud pit competitions that include Mud Races and Grudge Runs.
Major manufacturers Polaris, Can-Am, Kawasaki, Textron Off-Road & Arctic Cat will be bringing along their new models for you to dream and drool about! Take a demo ride and see what a new model can do for you.
Helicopter rides, a Friday Night Downtown Block Party, Monster Truck Racing and much, much more guarantee lots of fun, entertainment … and MUD! during the weekend of events.

Just as the nights are getting colder in New England, the City of Berlin will be warming things up with one of the best fall festivals around—RiverFire! Come to “the city that trees built” to catch a full day of fun, ending with some dramatic fires on the river.
RiverFire burns bigger and brighter every year, and this year there are some fun new activities for everyone. The gates of the Service Credit Union Heritage Park (942 Main Street, Berlin, NH) will open to activities and vendors for visitors of ALL ages. Admission to the park is FREE.
RiverFire features fun, family-oriented activities such as:
- Pumpkins on the bridge
- Hay rides
- Helicopter rides
- The “Not So Scary” Halloween Party
- A costume parade
- Live Music
- Mouth watering food
- Spectacular fires on the water
At dusk, the Androscoggin River will be lit up with fires that appear to be floating on the water! The blazes will actually burn on the historic boom piers that dot the river. These piers were used during the height of the logging era, when they separated and guided the many trees that were sent down the river to the mills of Berlin. For RiverFire, these old piers will be stacked with skids, which when set aflame create a dynamic contrast of light over the dark waters. Take a walk along the bridge and admire the wonderful glowing carved pumpkins on the bridge.
RiverFire is the hottest event of the season. It is a spectacle you won’t want to miss!
- For more information, call 603-752-6060 or find RiverFire Berlin, NH on Facebook.

The Lancaster Fair proudly presents Lonestar — the featured entertainment on Saturday night, September 5, beginning at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $10.
For more than 20 years Lonestar has logged countless miles touring throughout the world, released several Platinum-selling albums and ten No. 1 singles, earned ACM and CMA awards and inspired rave reviews as far away as London, where The Guardian proclaimed them exemplars of “country’s greatest strength: picture-painting, story-based, tear-your-heart-out lyrics that are the most direct and lucid in popular music.”
Yet all roads lead back to Nashville, where lead singer/guitarist Richie McDonald, lead guitarist/singer Michael Britt, keyboardist/guitarist/singer Dean Sams and drummer Keech Rainwater wrote and rehearsed songs for their tenth album, Never Enders, each one crafted impeccably yet as raw and soulful as all four members’ Texas honky-tonk roots.
Known for merging their country roots with strong melodies and rich vocals, Lonestar has amassed RIAA-certified sales in excess of ten million album units since their national launch in 1995, and achieved ten #1 country hits including “No News,” “Come Crying To Me,” and their crossover smash “Amazed” (which was also #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, the first record since 1983’s “Islands in the Stream”, to top both charts). The band’s awards include a 1999 ACM Single of The Year for “Amazed” (the song also won the Song of the Year award), and the 2001 CMA Vocal Group of the Year. With over a 100 dates worldwide per year, they are celebrating over 20 years together. Lonestar’s highly anticipated CD, Never Enders, features ten new original Lonestar songs that bring the band’s trademark sound into the contemporary arena.
