Family Events

NHMS takes pride in being family-friendly.

Kids Tickets

On Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Sundays and Full Throttle Fall Weekend Saturdays, kids tickets (age 12 and under on race day) are $10 with the purchase of an accompanying adult ticket (maximum of two kids tickets per adult ticket purchased). The pre-race pit pass is $45 (compared to $85 for an adult).

On NASCAR Fridays and Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Saturdays, kids (12 and under) are FREE!  Adults will still need to obtain a ticket for their child to enter (even if the admission is free), but if mentioned in advance they will be mailed with your paid tickets.  If not, kids vouchers may be picked up at any ticket window.


NASCAR weekend consists of a lot more than just on-track racing. Some of the highlights include:

  • The Fan Zone, which features interactive partner displays and activities throughout the weekend. It is great place to experience our partners' products from a fun and unique perspective. The Fan Zone also has go karts and the Trackside Live stage with driver appearances and concerts.
  • The Fun Zone, located in the Fan Zone, features games and activities for all ages, specifically geared toward families with children.
  • Driver autograph sessions allow fans to can interact with drivers and leave the weekend with signed memorabilia.

Alcohol-Free Section

NHMS offers a family-friendly seating area in the Laconia and Concord Grandstands for Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races.  Sections LL-LN and CW-CX, Rows 1-10, are designated as alcohol-free sections.  Drinking is strictly prohibited in these areas, as is smoking (which is prohibited throughout the grandstands).  Adult tickets for this section are $30 with $10 kids tickets for those ages 12 and under.

Family Camping

While some camping lots are known for their parties, NHMS has a selection of camping lots that are more family-oriented and kid-friendly.  These lots are designed for those looking to enjoy the excitement of the race as well as the tranquility of New Hampshire with family and friends.  They have longer quiet hours that are more strictly enforced to allow for an enjoyable experience.
