    Portsmouth, New Hampshire - The Music Hall is proud to present its 27th Annual Kitchen Tour, this year returning to Portsmouth’s walking-friendly Little Harbor neighborhood, boasting newly renovated kitchens on every block. A perfect get-together for Mother’s Day weekend, this is the tour for people considering a renovation project or for those just curious about the area’s top kitchen designs and trends. See how local turn-of-the century abodes have been renovated to showcase dream kitchens of all shapes and sizes. Be inspired by contemporary and classic styles created by the Seacoast’s top designers and builders. If you are looking to turn your own kitchen goals into reality, the craftsmen, artisans, designers, and architects involved will be on-site throughout the day of the tour to help you with design questions and inspiration.

    “The Kitchen Tour is a perfect way to enjoy a spring Saturday on the Seacoast while supporting The Music Hall. We can't wait to welcome our guests this year- the perfect Mother's Day treat!," says Ashleigh Tucker, tour Special Events Manager.
