Spring & Summer Arena Events

Craft Fair

The Douglas N. Everett Arena is owned and operated by the City of Concord’s General Services Department. Ice skating operations run from mid-September through mid-March and include high school hockey, Concord Youth Hockey, adult hockey, public skating, and stick practice.

From mid-March to mid-September, the Douglas N. Everett Arena hosts dry floor shows and events after ice operations have ended for the season. The arena is located in the capital city of New Hampshire, just east of Interstate 93 off Exit 14, making it a convenient location for both show vendors and attendees.

Shows & Events

A variety of shows and events are held at the arena during the spring and summer including flea markets, home shows, antique shows, gem & mineral shows, roller derby, and more! The Everett Arena hosts roller skating for a limited time during the summer. Concord General Services hosts its Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day in September.
