The Great New England Fine Craft & Artisan Show is Coming to Portsmouth, NH
There's nothing like a fun-filled summer event, show, or festival to help bring the community together. And this Saturday, July 9, you can experience just that by attending the Great New England Fine Craft & Artisan Show in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
This event will take place at Puddle Dock field at Strawbery Banke Museum from 10am-5pm, and is sure to be "THE Seacoast Craft & Artisan Show of the year!", according to the Facebook page for the show.
So, what exactly can you expect on Saturday?
Well, the event page explains that those who visit 14 Hancock Street will be able to enjoy "nearly 100 of the finest Artists, Craftsmen, and Specialty Food Artisans from around New England." This Facebook post says that among these products are "Jewelry...Paintings, Apparel...Seaglass Art, Bags, Clocks, Carvings...BBQ Sauces, Jams and Jellies...Perfumes, Soaps, Candles, Pet Products, Home Decor, Furniture and much much more!"
In addition to these local handmade goods, there will also be demonstrations, food, live music, $100 door prizes, and a beer & wine garden. Oh, and did we mention it's free?
