Autumn Events in Concord

There's a lot to do in Concord this autumn! You can visit the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery just outside the center of town and pay homage to writer's Nathaniel Hawthorne, Louisa May Alcott, Henry David Thoreau, and Ralph Waldo Emerson. You can check out the Old Manse by the North Bridge where presumably a ghost roams around at night. Scary! Or you can visit some of the many arty events going on around town. Check out our round up of some interesting art-related events below. Be sure to also take time to stroll around historic Concord Center, check out the shops (be sure to stop by our shop and gallery!), get some delicious pastries at the Sally Ann Bakery (we highly recommend the lemon coconut cookies!) and enjoy the foliage and autumn air.
