Spectators and ATVers get cranked over the endless opportunities to explore ATVing in every form at the Jericho ATV Festival Presented by Progressive. Mud races, demo rides, live music and delicious food are just some of the highlights of the 8th annual Festival at Jericho State Park in Berlin.

The Park itself has more than 80 miles of ATV trails, which connect with the more than 1,000 miles of interconnected Ride the Wilds OHRV trails throughout northern New Hampshire.

The Jericho ATV Festival is two days of absolute fun, including the infamous mud pit grudge runs, helicopter rides, demos of manufacturers’ new ATvs and SxS’s, a downtown block party, beer tent, torch lit ATV parade, poker run, ATV pulls, concert, lawn games and much, much more.
