Come join the festivities throughout the weekend as the Whit hosts the annual Home and Garden show! Over 100 vendors gather at the Whit to fulfill all your Home and Garden needs, featuring exhibitors of home and landscape related products and services. Don't miss out on the special offers and giveaways!
Each year the Seacoast Show runs concurrently on Friday and Saturday with the Annual UNH Greenhouse Open House. The Open House is sponsored by the Thompson School of Applied Science, the Plant Biology Department, the Cooperative Extension and the College of Life Science and Agriculture. The event features educational lectures, guided and self-guided tours of the greenhouses, plant sales, informative displays, the Plant Doctor and even a children's scavenger hunt. The Open House and greenhouse tours are free and open to the general public from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. both days. The Open House does not run on Sunday.
Returning again this year is the popular Meet the Chefs cooking series, now in its fourth year. This event attracts standing room only audiences and highlights some of the top chefs in the Seacoast region, who will share their culinary secrets and recipes in a specially designed kitchen with state of the art appliances. At the end of each cooking session, samples and recipes are passed out to the audience. Several of the chefs are authors and will be booksigning after their presentations. Please see the complete Meet the Chefs schedule on our website (you can also download their recipes!).
Exceptional traffic management, free parking, handicap accessible parking and continuous free shuttle bus service are provided for patrons of the Seacoast Home and Garden Show and the UNH Greenhouse Open House. Please observe all traffic and parking signs and watch for directions to designated parking areas to take advantage of the shuttle service.
