“We’re so extremely proud to support the American Independence Museum’s Family Camp Out,” noted Newburyport Bank President & CEO Lloyd L. Hamm. "It’s quintessential Americana with families getting together under the stars to play games, sing songs, make crafts, and so much more to celebrate our proud history. It’s one of those memories that lasts a lifetime, and we're so happy to play a small part in making it happen.”
Celebrating the arrival of the Declaration of Independence in Exeter on July 16, 1776, the American Independence Festival features a variety of entertainment, including music, military demonstrations, traditional artisan working village, and more. Sponsored by the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts, this year’s festival includes in-person events spanning the month of July.
