Sixth annual Burning Porcupine • June 10–30, 2013

If you’ve ever wanted to check out the town in New Hampshire with the highest concentration of liberty activists, now’s your chance. Liberty folk will be holding the sixth annual Burning Porcupine festival, this year from June 10–30, at the Hoyt Farm in beautiful rural Grafton.

The main events will be the first few days right after PorcFest (June 24–26), but you can come check out Grafton before or during PorcFest, too.

We’ll be holding tours of Grafton and all the liberty hotspots, showing available real estate in Grafton, and more.

Semi-dry camping is available at the Hoyt Farm. Bring a tent or your RV. There are outdoor bathrooms and a shower but no electricity or water hookups available. Camping, tours, and all events are FREE (however donations are appreciated)!

And if you’re at PorcFest, don’t forget to stop by RV site #59, where we’ll be bringing Grafton to you!

What is Burning Porcupine?

Burning Porcupine Festival began as both a protest of the FSP holding Porcfest at Gunstock and an introduction to Grafton.
As Porcfest has moved back to Rogers and Burning Porcupine Festival's sponsor returned to P'fest, Burning Porcupine Festival is now an introduction to Grafton and an opportunity for folks that didn't make it to P'fest to get together and, for folks who went to P'fest and wished it (the hanging out part) didn't end. --LloydBob

The name is a parody of an event called Burning Man, with the vague intention for it to be a really wild party kind of like that. Instead it actually tends to be really laid back and not that freaky at all other than there are a shitload of anarchists hanging out by a campfire, hatin' on the gooberment, eating, drinking, smoking and generally having a good time. There are events, but one similarity is that Burning Porcupine is largely not a regimented and scheduled event. The participants bring to it whatever they want and that's what shapes it. --Dalebert

Dale from AnarchyInYourHead.Com has donated the use of his "Flame On" design for our T-shirts this year.
Shirts will be available for purchase at site #21 Agora Alley during Porcfest.
