Special Use Permits
Special Use Permits may be issued for certain events such as wedding ceremonies, held at the park. The Special Use Policy outlines the permitted uses and designated areas of the park where wedding ceremonies or other permitted events may be held.
Individuals or organizations interested in applying for a special use permit may first call the park at (603) 675-2175 x107, to discuss the possibility. If an applicant wishes to proceed, they must fill out the Application for a Special Use Permit and send to the park to the attention of the Chief of Visitor Services. Unless requested use is an exercise of a First Amendment right, applications must be accompanied by a non-refundable, $75 check made out to "The National Park Service."
If approved, a Special Use Permit will be sent to the applicant, along with a Hold Harmless Clause. Both must be signed and returned to the Chief of Visitor Services before the permit approval is final.

In 1905, 85 members of the "Cornish Art Colony" staged an outdoor pageant at Augustus Saint-Gaudens' home in honor of his 20th year in Cornish, N.H. This play, "A Masque of 'Ours', the Gods and the Golden Bowl", sparked a nationwide interest in pageantry.
