Although small geographically, New Hampshire is fertile ground for the architects, designers and builders working here. Our annual Design Awards celebrate and recognize this talented community.
Nearly 50 selected artists and artisans will be displaying their work at the New Castle Congregational Church Guild’s Arts and Crafts Fair on the church lawn in the center of historic New Castle. Some of New England’s finest artists and craftsmen will be showing their oils, watercolors, photographs, jewelry, pottery and other creative items. Delicious home baked goods will be offered in the Parish Hall. Be sure to have a serving of homemade strawberry shortcake at the Strawberry Social from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Make a day of it! The Great Island Common and the New Castle beach with views of the Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse, Whaleback Lighthouse, the Wood Island Lifesaving Station and glimpses of the Isles of Shoals are always a popular stop. Come spend the day in historic and beautiful New Castle.
