It begins the almost two-year countdown until the total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024 when visitors to northern New Hampshire will have the opportunity to see a total eclipse of the sun. With 100 percent totality in northern towns like Colebrook and Pittsburg and 95 percent totality in the rest of the state, New Hampshire is expecting an influx of thousands of visitors to view this amazing once-in-a-lifetime event.

Anyone with a tourism-related business is invited to attend a free evening presentation at the historic Colonial Theatre in Bethlehem from 5 to 7:30 p.m. on June 21 to discuss solar eclipse marketing strategies. A reception with light refreshments and a cash bar will follow in The Colonial’s patio.
