The 40th Annual Market Square Day

Jun 10, 2017 @ 9:00 am  —  Jun 10, 2017 @ 4:00pm

Market Square Day was the first event produced by the non-profit, Pro Portsmouth.

Created to celebrate the renovation and beautification of Downtown Portsmouth and, in particular, Market Square, the Festival has grown in size along with the growth and popularity of Portsmouth. It is estimated that between 60,000 – 80,000 people walk through Downtown Portsmouth on that one day enjoying the entertainment, products and food offered by artists, cratfters and merchants – many from the Seacoast area.

On average, 150+ vendor applications are approved/accepted for inclusion in the festival. Two performance stages feature local and regional musicians. The day ‘kicks off’ with the Market Square Day 10K Road Race. Most of Downtown Portsmouth is vehicle-free and pedestrian-friendly from 9am ’til 4pm on the second Saturday in June each year.

The first Market Square Day took place in 1978; Pro Portsmouth marks its’ anniversary each year on Market Square Day.
