Freecoast Festival Schedule Filling Out

PORTSMOUTH - The Freecoast.org, which fosters the growing liberty movement in the Seacoast region of New Hampshire, has released new details about the upcoming first annual Freecoast Festival.

The event takes place Sept. 19-20, 2014 in the towns of Portsmouth, Newmarket and Lee, New Hampshire.

The weekend's festivities kick off with a private screening of Hori Smoku: The Life of Norman K. Collins at the Hotel Portsmouth. This feature-length documentary explores the life of iconoclast Norman "Sailor Jerry" Collins. Collins is the father of modern-day tattooing, whose uncompromising lifestyle and larger-than-life persona made him an American legend. Through rare interviews, photographs, and archival footage, Hori Smoku tells the story of this radical entrepreneur who built an underground movement that eventually went mainstream. Complementary rum-soaked Holy Donuts will be served. Coffee, beer & wine will be available at a cash bar.

Following the screening, there will be a pub crawl through four of Portsmouth’s famed night spots, in the tradition of the Ron Paul pub crawl held by supporters before his record showing in the 2012 NH primary. Pubs to be "crawled" include The Coat of Arms, Ri Ra Irish Pub, The Red Door, and D Street Tavern.

Stone Church Meeting HouseSaturday morning, the festival convenes at Newmarket’s Stone Church Meeting House, one of New England's most unique live music venues and brewpubs. Attendees will hear a series of short talks on the theme of Radical Entrepreneurship.
