The event is scheduled to begin at 12:20 this afternoon.
President Obama is making the stop just hours after delivering his speech at the Democratic National Convention and he hopes to keep the energy and momentum rolling.
Fresh off his speech at the convention, president Obama heads to New Hampshire Friday.
He’ll be in Portsmouth with Vice President Joe Biden to meet with supporters.
Thursday night, while officially accepting his party's nomination again, the president energized Democrats while also reaching out to undecided voters.
"I'm asking you to rally around a set of goals for your country - goals in manufacturing, energy, education, national security, and the deficit; a real, achievable plan that will lead to new jobs, more opportunity, and rebuild this economy on a stronger foundation.”
The president stressed the recent positive steps made by the American auto industry.
"I’ve met workers in Detroit and Toledo who feared they'd never build another American car. Today, they can't build them fast enough, because we reinvented a dying auto industry that's back on top of the world."
Looking forward, he wants to keep education and green energy programs as well as keeping Medicare the way it is now.
"Yes, our path is harder but it leads to a better place. Yes our road is longer but we travel it together. We don't turn back. We leave no one behind."
Following Friday afternoon's event in Portsmouth, the president will then to Iowa for a rally.
Republican candidate Mitt Romney is visiting the same two states today.
He will be in Iowa later today before hosting a rally in Nashua, New Hampshire this evening.
