Photo Gallery: 250th Summer Celebration

The event was held to recognize Dartmouth’s longstanding connection to Hanover and the greater Upper Valley community.

The Green bustled with activity on July 27 as the College welcomed community members to campus to enjoy a summertime commemoration of Dartmouth’s 250th anniversary. The daytime portion of the event included food trucks, games, tango lessons, and live music. Representatives from several Dartmouth-affiliated organizations and departments gave out 250-related souvenirs and shared information about programs open to the public. A free evening concert, presented by the Hopkins Center for the Arts, included performances by the Pedro Giraudo Tango Quartet, Cha Wa, and Noah Kahan.
