Mount Washington Auto Road, Gorham NH

Muster in the Mountains 

A weekend of colonial reenactment comes to the Auto Road

Postponed to 2021 due to COVID19

Unfortunately we have to cancel the event for 2020 due to health and safety concerns surrounding the novel coronavirus. Anyone who is pre-registered to attend will be transferred to the event in 2021. 


While we can brave the cold, the snow, and the rain, we do not want to cause unnecessary risk to our community, participants, and attendees. 


This event features a colonial encampment of re-enactors representing the French and Indian War, Revolutionary War, and Mountain Man periods from 1750 through 1840. This gathering will take place in the fields at the base of the Mt. Washington Auto Road in beautiful Pinkham Notch in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Participants demonstrate the use of appropriate tools, clothing, and firearms from their respective time periods. This event is free and open to the general public with the hope that the education they receive here may spur them on to consider becoming a future participant.


Open to the public: Friday 10am – 4pm, Saturday from 10am – 5pm, & Sunday from 10am – 1pm.
