Coming for a visit is the best way to see what the Free State Project is all about. Here you can explore the different areas of the state and experience “porcupine” hospitality. We can even connect you with friendly people to talk to and interesting things to do during your stay.
Many people choose to visit during an event so that they can easily meet and interact with Free Staters from around New Hampshire. Our annual summer event, the Porcupine Freedom Festival, is coming up in June 2018. It will offer the unique opportunity of enjoying the beauty of the White Mountains while attending discussions, parties, and more with Free Staters.
My first visit was only for three days this past June, and I was overwhelmed that everything was so lush and green – so beautiful! When I flew back to San Diego, everything looked so brown and dry, even the leaves on the trees. And…I moved just 45 days later. I’m still loving my decision, even after my first snowy winter.Kara, Mover from California

Crosby Peck, the owner of Rodgers Campground, likes Free Staters because they shake things up and because they’re an enjoyable bunch to host. He said they are fantastic, fastidious people who leave the campground “even nicer than when they came in.”
What Is it Like to Visit PorcFest?
This video explores what first-timer experiences of the Porcupine Freedom Festival. Though filmed in 2011, the descriptions hold true today.
I came here wanting to find reasons to stay put. But my negativity was totally disarmed with the warm welcome we got. We met awesome Free Staters at a meetup they specifically created for us, ate amazing seafood, and met the Budweiser horses in Nashua!Tiffany
