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.
