The Portsmouth Fairy House Tour usually takes place each fall in the historic South End Neighborhood of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, with more than 250 fairy houses built by creative professionals, community members, and students to be displayed on the grounds of Strawbery Banke, Historic New England's Governor John Langdon House, and Prescott Park.
This year, the Portsmouth Fairy House Tour has been modified to a virtual tour in order to keep all of our fairy house builders and admirers safe and healthy. Builders are hard at work creating beautiful homes to entice fairy friends and they are eager to share their whimsical creations with you! Register nowfor your virtual ticket to gain fairy ring-side access to this beloved community event from the safety and comfort of your living room!
This Portsmouth Fairy House Tour is produced by the Friends of the South End and all of the proceeds benefit the organizations, schools, and community groups who participate in the event. Since the Fairy House Tour began, more than $325,000 has been reinvested directly to the Portsmouth community.
