    Event Description:



    Join the family fun at the 2016 SummerFest on Saturday, June 25th, from 10 am - 10 pm (rain or shine) in downtown Exeter on Swasey Parkway.  Presented by the Exeter Area Chamber of Commerce.
    This year's festival boasts "something for everyone", from the young to the old. Live music, magic, storytelling, face painting, train rides and animals are some of the live entertainment throughout the entire day. Add in the many varied craft vendors and food vendors, this year's festival is something you don't want to miss!
    Start your day with a pancake breakfast hosted by the Exeter Boy Scouts - Troop 322 from 8:00 am - 11:00 am under the Food Tent located across from the Swasey Park Pavilion.  Cost:  $5.00 per person donation. 
    Children's entertainer, Les Julian, will be providing some fun musical entertainment at the dedicated Kid's Stage.  The kid's stage will also feature British storyteller, Simon Brooks and magic by Malik the Magic Guy.

    The Swasey Park Pavilion stage will feature Kilted Colin for two performances (noon and 7:30 pm). This is a high energy comedy show with acrobatics, bagpiping and unicycling, and all of it in a kilt!  All Hands Drumming, an interactive drum-circle for all ages will also be performing.  Back by popular demand, Wildlife Encounters will be on hand with a chance to get up close and personal with creatures of the furry and scale-covered kind. Plus music and demonstrations by local band, Granite Planet, Randall Karate School and Musical Arts Academy.
    All day events feature the YMCA rock climbing wall, a bounce house for the little ones or take a ride on the roaming railroad train.  Walk through the downtown area and enjoy some of the unique creations that fill the shops and galleries, along with delectable food and treats.  And don't forget to purchase your duck for the 2nd Annual Duck Race at 3pm to benefit the Chamber Children's Fund.
    End your day with a chicken BBQ hosted by Exeter Professional Firefighters, IAFF Local 3491.  The BBQ will take place under the Food Tent starting at 4:30 pm.  Cost: $10 per person and includes: 1/2 BBQ Chicken, Potato Salad, Corn-on-the-Cob, and Roll. Tickets can be purchased in advance at the INFORMATION BOOTH located by the FOOD TENT
