The Made In NH “Try It & Buy It” Expo is dedicated to showcasing the impressive variety of quality products and services made in the Granite State. It hosts about 150 exhibitors and thousands of attendees every year; the shopping is amazing! There is a little bit of everything: jewelry, crafts, lawn and home care, pottery, bath and beauty products, pets, kids, and of course food, wine, and desserts.
All active GSAs and Future Leaders of NH are eligible to volunteer.

Parking is available in the garage ($6 validated rate) and on nearby streets (the side streets are free on weekends, Elm St. is only free on Sunday).
The Expo has offered to pay for our parking while we’re volunteering, but we encourage you to park on the street when it’s free (Saturday and Sunday) and carpool whenever possible, because $6 each for 50 plus volunteers can add up very quickly!
