Celebrate Portsmouth is Main Street's only event that is purely fundraiser. The program depends on this fun evening of friends and neighbors over food and an open bar, a silent auction, and good company to continue its work for downtown Portsmouth. The event is also the group's annual meeting, where updates are given by the director and the Annual Ellen Vetter Memorial Award is given. Dinner is often provided by the Portsmouth Brewing Company, cake is provided by Union Mills Confectionery, and music is performed by Mr. Andy Russell.
