Tickets Now on Sale for 2019 Radically Rural Summit

Early-bird tickets are on sale now through July 5 for the second annual Radically Rural Summit. Hosted by The Keene Sentinel and the Hannah Grimes Center for Entrepreneurship, Radically Rural is a two-day event that brings together people who are passionate about creating vibrant, robust rural communities, and are eager to learn, connect, and lead change. Explore the qualities defining, the challenges facing, and the creative solutions possible for small-town communities near and far. 

Last year, more than 500 people from 21 states attended our first Summit. 96 percent of last year’s attendees reported that they learned useful ideas they could implement in their own communities.

This year’s event, held in several venues across downtown Keene Sept. 19 and 20, will feature six program tracks — Arts and Culture, Journalism, Entrepreneurship, Main Street, Working Lands, and Renewable Energy.

The Entrepreneurship track will culminate with the Hannah Grimes Center’s second annual PitchFork Challenge, a business pitch competition offering a $10,000 cash prize.

Visit to get tickets for the Summit, which are $129 until June 15, and include access to CONNECT, an amazing networking event full of fun, food, music, art, and sharing.
