5th Annual New Hampshire Fish and Lobster Festival
New England is known for its seafood, but did you ever wonder where it comes from?
On Saturday, September 14, from noon until 4pm at Prescott Park in Portsmouth, you can get the answer to just that question at the 5th Annual New Hampshire Fish and Lobster Festival, more commonly called the Fishtival. Admission is free, and it’s only $4 to sample seafood from renowned local chefs. The festival will feature games, activities and live music with a performance by Sharks Come Cruisin’. This event is meant to be super interactive so you can learn everything you’ve ever wanted to know and more about New Hampshire’s fishing life. So stop by and see what’s so great about New England seafood.
1st Annual Scarecrow Contest
I used to build scarecrows every Halloween when I was a kid, so I had to give this event a shout out.
Register today for the 1st Annual Scarecrow Contest at Alyson’s Orchard in Walpole for your chance to win prizes at the Apple Festival held there on September 29. The deadline for entries is September 20, so download your entry forms today. Entries are due on September 26 in time for judging before the Apple Festival. Pull out your old flannel shirts and scrounge up some straw, because this contest looks like it might get a little scary! (I’m sorry. I really couldn’t help myself.)
New Hampshire Coffee Festival
With so many other great reasons to visit Laconia, why not throw coffee into the mix?
On September 14 from 1pm until 5pm, the streets of Laconia will be abuzz with coffee at the New Hampshire Coffee Festival. Stroll down Main Street to learn about different brewing methods, sample great food, and even take in a little latte art. And you’ll want to stock up on your caffeine to participate in the Java Games! So find a fellow coffee lover to indulge in this great excuse to visit beautiful Laconia.
