Festival Committee

The Heritage Festival–the Seacoast’s favorite international block party–is organized by a dedicated group of volunteers. Interested in being part of the festival team? Give us a call: 659.5588. In Memorium: The Heritage Festival planning committee lost one of our long-time volunteers recently: Wilfred (Tidoe) Beaulieu (May 14, 1940-July 16, 2012). We will miss Tidoe’s sense of humor (especially his taste in hats), his logistical expertise, and his stories of old Newmarket. We are all grateful to have known and worked with someone who was truly a Keeper of the Heritage–and a good friend.
