Socially Distanced Performance, Culinary Arts and Retail
Our community can enjoy theater, music, and performances arts in the Bridge Street lot, or simply shop from some of our local retailers while enjoying a meal & a drink from a local restaurant and brewery.
We are asking for your help to fund this. The City of Portsmouth has issued a $50K matching challenge, which we matched, but there is still a funding gap. Please consider a tax-deductible donation today.
For $250, you can adopt-a-spot of your own on one of our fence barriers. These barriers are seen by thousands of cars a day, right in Downtown Portsmouth.
Line it with ivy and your logo, make an artistic statement, or give it over to an artist in your life. It's your spot to decide what to do with, as long as it's positive, family friendly, and non-political.
This spot does not include any printing of signs or materials, sponsor will be responsible for that.

Hadley Barndollar from seacoastonline followed up with some questions and here's a wonderful write up! Read it here.
We thank the city staff and Hadley for your time and interest in our proposal. Good things are happening. Stay tuned for more updates.
The Portsmouth Citizen Response Task Force met today at 2pm to discuss various proposals. The Foundry Garage Pop Up Rooftop proposal was mentioned and presented. There seemed to be positive reaction to the proposal, so the committee decided to create a sub-group, with Russ Grazier as the Chair.
We will be visiting the site on the 11th to look at some possible problem areas and see what progress we can make.
We posted our applications on our website earlier today and have received some interest from some great businesses so we're really excited!
Stay tuned for an update after the site visit tomorrow - Kathleen
