Manchester, NH – The Red Arrow Diner is inviting the community to celebrate its historic past and bright future at its outdoor 100th anniversary celebration on Saturday, October 15 from 11 am to 2 pm.

The diner’s section of 61 Lowell Street – from Kosciuszko to Chestnut Streets – will be closed to traffic, and all four Red Arrow Diner locations in Concord, Londonderry, Manchester, and Nashua will be closed until 4 pm so employees may attend. All locations will open at 4 pm to accommodate normal operating hours. The event will feature popular diner dishes, activities for kids and families, raffle prizes and games, music, and on-site FrankFM radio broadcasting with Morning Show DJs Nazzy and Marissa.

Throughout the year, the Red Arrow Diner has been celebrating its establishment in 1922 with Diner Dish of the Decade promotions, recognizing 100 local businesses on its Facebook page, and sharing memories about its own history – and Manchester’s – on social media. This event is the grand finale of its anniversary festivities.

“We planned this celebration with our community in mind,” said Carol Lawrence, Co-Owner and President, Red Arrow Diner. “We are excited to welcome our friends – old and new – to sample our iconic dishes, enjoy kid-friendly entertainment, and make memories with us as we honor the owners and families who came before us, and celebrate the employees and customers who make the Red Arrow Diner a fun place to visit every day.”

Event entry is free, but anyone interested in sampling food must purchase a ticket for $5. All ticket sale proceeds will be directly donated to Waypoint New Hampshire. Tickets and the event menu are available online at
