Learn 25+ things in 5 hours

for FREE!

RSVP on our Facebook Event Page!

 

Saturday August 2 | 10 AM – 3 PM | Rain or Shine!

Ever wondered how to do the dance from Michael Jackson’s Thriller? Or kick a field goal? Or make kombucha? Or play hundreds of songs with only three guitar chords? Or open a bee hive? Or build your own rotocopter, self-watering garden container, or LED reading light? Or play chess? Or swing dance?


We could go on! There’s only one place to learn all these things and more: Portsmouth Public Library’s very first How-To Festival. This event is completely free and open to the public.


Supporting the local community is a big part of our mission at PPL. The How-To Festival is a celebration of all the skills and talents the Seacoast area has to offer – and a place for community members to connect and share their knowledge and passion with each other! Our community partners include:

 

 

 

There will be something for everyone at the How-To Festival – bring the whole family and all your friends! All you need is a picnic lunch. The rest is on us! So mark your calendars for August 2nd, and get ready to learn!
