Mini 'Street Fair'

PORTSMOUTH — The Dorks in Dungeons cast and crew will hold a Mini Portsmouth “Street Fair” as a fundraiser for their touring needs. The all-day event will be held on Sat., May 18, from 10:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. at 58 State Street (in the lot across from the Rosa where Station used to be). Expect to find gently used yard sale items, handmade crafts, bake sale goodies, gift certificates and merchandise donated from local establishments, live music featuring Jamie Bradley and Old Saw (with more to come), the Kitchen Deli & Catering food truck, face painting, children’s games, and more!

The show Dorks in Dungeons is going to Gen Con, the largest gaming convention in the entire Universe! All proceeds from the Street Fair will go into their Kickstarter fund.
