New Hampshire’s Annual Lilac Festival Belongs On Your Springtime Bucket List

While we might be experiencing a bit more cold weather and snow than we’d like, there’s no denying that spring has to be on the horizon. Right? We’re saying yes and with that yes comes our commitment to adding new things to our list of must-sees in the Granite State. Among them is this annual lilac festival. To make your spring bright and beautiful, make plans to visit and take time to smell the roses. And by “roses” we mean lilacs.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

The Annual Lilac Festival takes place on Saturday May 25, 2019, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Wentworth-Coolidge Mansion, located at 375 Little Harbor Rd., Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Learn more about the house on their website or give them a call on 603-436-6607.

For more springtime fun, book a stay at one of these lovely New Hampshire yurts. It’s like camping, but without having to sleep on the ground outside!
