LANCASTER – Today is day five of PorcFest, the Free State Project‘s premier annual event designed to showcase the liberty community in New Hampshire. This year’s event is the largest yet, featuring four tents plus the pavilion at Roger’s Campground holding a nonstop array of lectures, panel discussions, hands-on workshops, live music and after-hours parties.

Here’s just a small sampling of the over 100 scheduled events (these are ones I’ve attended myself!): on Monday, rising star Vera Kichanova, a 23-year-old libertarian activist and elected official from Moscow, gave an inspiring talk on what it’s like fighting for liberty in the former Soviet Union. FSP President Carla Gericke led a class on how to make biltong, a dried meat delicacy from her native South Africa, and attendees got to sample some biltong at the end. Second Amendment Sisters volunteer and self-described “community prepper” Alicia Lekas demonstrated how to make mozzarella cheese from scratch. AltExpo hosted a provocative panel discussion on the Nonaggression Principle and when is violence against state agents justified, with Larken Rose, Carla Gericke, Josie Wales and Varrin Swearingen.
