Virtual NH Maker & Food Fest
Saturday, August 29

Because of the special challenges 2020 is presenting us all, The Children's Museum of NH decided this year the Fest will be virtual! So here is what it will look like:
  1. The Fest will still take place on Saturday, August 29th, but instead of anything in-person at the museum, all content will be online, and will remain online for one week only.
  2. The Children's Museum of New Hampshire will be providing 150 free Maker Fest Activity kits that people can reserve online beginning August 4th, on a first-come, first-served basis, that will include all sorts of fun activities and projects that can be done at home. Kits must be picked up in person at the museum on Wednesday, August 26 between 3-5pm, so please be sure you are available to pick them up during that time before reserving your kit. Because we have a limited number of kits, we ask that you only reserve one kit per family.
