Portsmouth Victorian Christmas

Portsmouth Victorian Christmas

Get in the holiday spirit in Portsmouth with tax free holiday shopping and Candlelight Stroll

Portsmouth's Victorian Christmas

Sunday, December 10


Every year the coastal town of Portsmouth, NH turns back the clock to celebrate a traditional Victorian Christmas.  Enjoy some free time downtown to have an early dinner on your own and some wonderful tax-free shopping in the unique local shops.  The downtown area is alive with holiday décor and sales! 


Then as dusk approaches we will attend the Candlelight Stroll at Strawbery Banke Museum.  Strawbery Banke is a living history museum showcasing 300 years of coastal life history with dozens of historic buildings and costumed role players.  During their annual Candlelight Stroll is when the museum grounds truly shine. The furnished historic houses are adorned with handmade decorations created from greens and dried flowers from the Museum’s heirloom gardens. While traveling from house to historic house, the glow of hundreds of lighted candle lanterns light the way and guests enjoy seasonal greetings from costumed roleplayers and performers who recreate the traditions of times past. Be sure to catch Ice Dance International’s Currier and Ives Vintage Skaters as they perform at Puddle Dock Pond. Stroll the Grove of Holiday Trees, numerous holiday trees decorated by members of the community and local businesses and organizations. Please dress for outdoor holiday fun!
