Drive-In Festival August 14-16!

Just because we are socially distancing doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the arts together this summer!

The Cochecho Arts Festival has taken place each summer for the past 33 years to bring music and art to downtown Dover, NH. Given the situation around covid19, the Greater Dover Chamber of Commerce is pivoting to bring the arts to downtown in a safe and enjoyable format. We are hard at work planning for a drive-in festival for August, 14, 15, and 16!

We will kick off the weekend with a Friday movie night showing a local short film as well as a commercial movie. On Saturday, we will have kids performances in the morning followed by headlining performances that night. We will wrap up the weekend on Sunday showcasing the visual arts.

Stay tuned for more details!


The Greater Chamber of Commerce takes the health and safety of our members and the community seriously, and we are continuously monitoring the coronavirus situation. At this time, we plan to hold the Cochecho Arts Festival as normal. If a decision is made that alters the format of the festival, all performers will be notified right away, and an update will be added to this website. Thank you for your understanding and support.
