Children’s Museum Maker & Food Fest! Saturday September 18th.

The 9th annual NH Maker & Food Fest is back this year and will happen Saturday, September 18th from 10am-3pm.

The NH Maker & Food Fest, hosted and organized by The Children’s Museum of New Hampshire in Dover, is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists, to chefs, the Maker & Food Fest is a venue for these “makers” to show hobbies, experiments, projects, and for all of us to enjoy fantastic food!

We call it the Greatest Show & Tell (& Taste) on Earth – a family friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness.

This year, the Makers have the option of participating not only in-person at the Fest, but also virtually, so look for even more great inspiration, either online or at the Fest!

New this year, we’re offering “Pay-what-you-can” admission! Everyone is welcome, regardless of the ability to pay (suggested donation of $5 per person). No tickets or online reservations are necessary on the 18th. “It’s a really fun day full of hands-on activities both inside and outside the museum,” shared Cole. “Families won’t want to miss it!”

The Cochecho Arts Festival is collaborating with the Maker & Food Fest this year! The Fest ends at 3pm so we can all enjoy a performance by the Kenny Brothers Band as part of the Cochecho Arts Festival. Also happening on the same day and in the lower park is Magic Fred and the 2021 Ukulele Festival!

It’s SHOWTIME! Magic Fred is a local children’s magician. This show is perfect for all ages, and the kids will have crazy fun. Magic Fred offers lots of age-appropriate comedy to keep everyone laughing, while the amazing high-quality magical illusions will leave you in awe!
