New Hampshire Lafayette Day, Monday, May 20, 2024, 3-5 pm

The best celebration of Lafayette since 1825!

  • Presentation of the Colors by the Sons of the American Revolution
  • Playing and singing of the American and French national anthems – maybe even Yankee Doodle
  • Reading of Governor Sununu’s Lafayette Day proclamation
  • Greetings from Consul General of France in Boston, Mustafa Soykurt
  • Short presentations by representatives of the House of Representatives and the Senate
  • Displays of musketry and artillery by the Lafayette Artillery of Lyndeborough, New Hampshire
  • Launching of a free virtual Lafayette Farewell Tour travelogue with 23 separate New Hampshire stories available on the TravelStorys app

The American Friends of Lafayette will present a demonstration of the travelogue inside the State House, perhaps in the Hall of the House of Representatives where Lafayette was greeted by the Governor and other state officials on June 22, 1825. This tour tells the stories of Lafayette’s Farewell Tour visits to New Hampshire cities and towns in both 1824 and 1825. Each of the 23 stories has a 3-minute narration with scrolling images, and many of them have sound effects. New Hampshire’s own Laura Knoy, formerly the host of NHPR’s The Exchange, narrates. She will also be present to help us commemorate and celebrate!
