It’s that time of year again. No, not time to rake those leaves to the curb (well, yes that too), but it’s time for N.H. Open Doors.

Open Doors is an annual event where crafters and artisans open their studios (or join forces with another location) to show off their work and demostrate their craft for visitors. This year’s event will be held on Nov. 2 and 3.

There are locations across the state from the North Country to the state’s southern border, but we’ve just rounded up the spots in the greater Concord area. For the full list of participants, visit nhopendoors.com.

Oh, and if you print out the “passport” and get signatures from artists at five or more spots, you can be entered in a drawing for the 2019 ornament or tickets to the 2020 League of N.H. Craftsmen’s Fair.

  1. I would love a list of area events for craft people I do multiple crafts and would like to know when these events occur and if possible who to contact to set up a table to show my crafts Thank Karen Doran

    • Hi Karen,

      I would recommend contacting NH Open Doors by going to nhopendoors.com. The event takes place Nov. 2 and 3. Most of the listings here are places that will be open for visitors on those two days. The NH Open Doors folks would probably have more specific information for you.
