Summer is well on its way in the Live Free or Die State. An abundance of events and festivals are popping up around the state as locals and tourists alike take advantage of the gorgeous scenery and cooperative weather. If you are looking for fun outdoor activities or in the mood for liberty-themed activism, the Freecoast has you covered. Read on to plan your trip to New Hampshire.
Meetup for Freedom
Throughout summer, the Freecoast hosts several gatherings. Weekly outreach meetups take place at rotating locations throughout the Seacoast region every Thursday from 6pm-9pm. Don’t miss the chance to pay your bill in crypto while engaging in digital currency discussion that takes place at Dash meetups that occur bi-weekly on Wednesdays from 6pm-10pm at Liar’s Bench in Portsmouth (June 12, June 26 and so on ). Also, every second Saturday of the month, The Freecoast Market takes place at the Liberty Community Center in Dover. Shop, trade, and socialize while enjoying the thriving free market of the Freecoast!
Along with the continuous activities throughout the state, The Free State Project hosts PorcFest, their flagship event, which runs this year from June 18-23. The family-friendly event features a week long camping excursion in the White Mountains of New Hampshire where you will find no shortage of liberty-themed talks and presentations, panels, vendors, campfires, music, food and parties.
Towards the end of summer, the Freecoast hosts its own liberty event, the annual Freecoast Festival which takes place this year from September 3-8. This event offers panels and speakers, a beautiful scenic cruise along the Atlantic that departs from Portsmouth, and a glimpse of the day to day life in the Freecoast community. Tickets are available now for this event.
If you plan to visit other regions of New Hampshire, the Free State Project calendar has a very helpful list of varying activities happening all around the state. These include the Libertarian Party meetup every third Wednesday of the month in Nashua, the Shire Bitcoin Meetup in Manchester every Sunday, the Upper Valley Porcupine Liberty meetup in West Lebanon on the last Tuesday of every month, and several other gatherings with liberty-minded individuals across the state.
