There is always something interesting to do and see in Rhode Island and not just in the summer. Special events, fairs, festivals and concerts are happening year-round throughout the state.
You’ll enjoy world-famous music festivals … fine seafood eateries and casual outdoor clambakes … triple-A baseball … Christmas pageants … the world’s largest collection of cookbooks … galleries and a distinguished art museum where students’ works hang next to those of the masters … dramatic, expansive gardens surrounding the countless great estates built during the 19th century… Narragansett Bay, one of the country’s great waterways … busy harbors filled with fishing boats … Warwick’s miracle mile of shopping.
No matter when you plan your visit, you will find something fun to do. From historic tours to WaterFire, performing arts to food festivals, and everything in between, there are events for every season.
The Providence area plays host to a wide range of nightlife events, including karaoke and trivia nights, comedy shows and more. And for those looking for something more food-focused, there are also a variety of dining specials and events.
