Smokey Bear’s 75th Birthday Celebration

New Hampshire’s Division of Forests and Lands and the state’s Division of Parks and Recreation are teaming up with the Northeast Forest Fire Protection Commission to celebrate Smokey Bear’s 75th birthday!

Please join us from 10:00am-3:00pm on August 15th for a family-friendly event offering fun games, live music, program speakers, birthday cake, photos with Smokey, a BBQ, and a wildland engine touch-a-truck.

Attendees will get a chance to ride the aerial tramway to the top of Cannon Mountain with Smokey Bear. And the Friends of Smokey Bear Hot Air Balloon is making a stop in New Hampshire for the event and will offer tethered balloon rides, weather permitting. We’ll also be recognizing the student winners of the New Hampshire Federation of Garden Clubs’ Smokey Bear poster contest.

Please join us for a fun filled day and help us celebrate Smokey Bear’s 75th birthday in New Hampshire’s beautiful Franconia Notch State Park.
