Strawbery Banke Museum hosts several unforgettable signature events throughout the year. From the dozen heirloom breeds of baby animals (and their moms) featured at Baby Animals: Heritage Breeds at the Banke to fine wines, savory foods, delectable desserts, and the many one-of-a-kind silent auction items at Vintage & Vine.
Seasonal and holiday signature events are time-honored traditions that help make Portsmouth the vibrant destination it is including the annual Candlelight Stroll, anchoring Vintage Christmas in Portsmouth.
Special programs, performances, gallery exhibits, and tours accent thematic occasions such as NH Archaeology Month, Preservation Month, and Native American Heritage Month.
