Portsmouth NH – Holiday Fairs and Festivals

                   Holiday Fairs Portsmouth NH

What would the holiday season be without the awesome
holiday craft fairs, church fairs, holiday art shows, parades, and
so much more?  We’ve got plenty of  them in and
around the Portsmouth NH Seacoast areas?!?

We had a fun sampling of them just before Thanksgiving,
and we’ve got even more coming up starting this coming
weekend.   This coming weekend, Dec. 1st & 2nd, is THE
big holiday fair weekend in this area.
