As Strawbery Banke celebrates Portsmouth NH’s quadricentennial, Candlelight Stroll invites visitors to step into the past and experience 400 years of seasonal and holiday traditions in the Puddle Dock neighborhood.

The Museum’s furnished historic houses are adorned with handmade decorations created from greens and dried flowers from the Museum’s heirloom gardens. Visitors call upon the many families who once lived in the waterfront neighborhood – portrayed by costumed roleplayers – who share stories, customs, and seasonal traditions. While traveling from house to historic house, the glow of hundreds of lighted candle lanterns light the way as guests enjoy seasonal greetings from wandering musicians and performers who recreate the traditions of times past.

Additionally enjoy hot apple cider, a warming bonfire, an old-fashioned holiday shopping experience at Pickwick’s at the Banke, and Ice Dance International’s Currier and Ives Vintage Skaters for several performances each night (Fridays and Saturdays at 6:00 & 7:30 PM & Sundays at 5:00 & 6:30 PM) of this treasured event.
