There are several great events that happen here in New Hampshire each year. These events not only make for a great vacation, they are also a great place to meet and network with hundreds of other Liberty-minded people. You can participate in any of the many (un)organized activities or just spend your time meeting and talking with people from all over the country. Make sure that when you attend these events that you take the opportunity to explore the rest of the state. The Free State Project currently hosts two annual events each year.
The Porcupine Festival is a week-long camping trip here in New Hampshire. It is usually held in June of each year. This is an informal event with a wide variety of events ranging from spontaneous campsite celebrations of Liberty to organized question and answer sessions with well-known Liberty activists. Enjoy cookouts, competitions, raffles, arts and crafts, and Liberty vendor wares. Usually features tours of various regions of New Hampshire complete with tour buses and New Hampshire natives as guides, as well as off-site events like hiking trips and marksmanship training at local gun ranges. There is something for everyone. If camping isn't your style there are local Inn's you can stay at in the area.
The Liberty Forum is a more formal hotel-style convention held each winter. Speakers and vendors from every area of the Liberty movement attend and work on "Moving Liberty Forward." This event is usually more politically oriented than the Porcupine Festival, complete with tours of the State House and observation of the various political committees. A full weekend of speakers, panels and workshops will help you keep informed about the latest issues and organizations in the fight for Liberty in our Lifetime, and features evening dinners with nationally recognized keynote speakers. Informally organized social functions are usually hosted well into the evening by Porcupines and friends of the FSP in their own private hospitality suites.
Porcfest and Liberty Forum are the only two events that are officially put on by the FSP. However, each year, various events are held throughout New Hampshire by other people or organizations. For example, often times in both the Spring and Fall there is a Free Keene Fest held at Railroad Square in Keene, NH. 2012 marks the forth year for the Spring event titled Bardo Farm Fest in Croydon, NH. The Live Free or Die Rally happens in Jaffrey, NH every August. Various events have happened in Grafton, NH over the years.
