It’s Primary Season in NH, and Candidates are Renting our Historic Hall! Centennial Hall has proudly served as a Cultural Hub since 1876. Over the decades, we have hosted a wide variety of events including candidate Town Halls and campaign stops.

Most recently the Tell It Like It Is PAC is renting the hall for a Town Hall featuring Governor Chris Christie on Tuesday, September 19th. It is important for our supporters and community members to note that these events and Hall rentals do not imply endorsements by the Friends of Centennial Hall.

We are grateful for the increasing interest in renting our Historic Hall especially as we move towards opening the second floor Ballroom to rentals. All Hall rental income from campaign events and private parties help us move towards our goal of restoring our beautiful Ballroom to it’s original grandeur.
