It’s finally, suddenly summer. Hot and humid, crowded, and undeniably, August. The upside to cluttered roads and beaches? There’s just SO much to do! Indoors and out. Here are a few spots we’re headed to this month…
Saturday, August 9th: The Greater Westerly-Pawcatuck Area Chamber of Commerce present Riverglow, Westerly’s take on waterfire. A community event with music, food, family activities and more, centered around a beautiful, watery spectacle starting at 7 pm.
Sunday, August 10th: The 3rd annual Green Market Festival in South Kingstown. We’ll find any excuse to head to The Farmer’s Daughter, so an outdoor festival at the acclaimed nursery and garden center makes this one a no-brainer. And Big Nazo will be there, even better!
Saturday, Aug. 16th – Sunday Aug. 17th: Wet Paint 2014 at the Newport Art Museum. Participate as an artist, or watch as artists ply their craft at locations around Newport on Saturday and then bid on works you love in silent and live auctions on Sunday.
Thursday, August 14 (And every remaining Thursday this month): Wellfleet Artisan Market. Local artists from the Cape and surrounding areas show off and sell their various crafts. We love every vendor there!
August 5th-10th: Catch the last half of FLICKERS: Rhode Island International Film Festival 2014 screening of more than 200 films this year at various venues including PPAC and (our favorite!) the Jamestown Arts Center.
Saturday, August 16th: The Greenway Open Market, part of Sowa, Boston’s string of outdoor markets. This one sets up on the new Rose Kennedy Greenway and features a weekly crop of the city’s arts and crafts vendors.
And finally, back in East Greenwich, RI!
Saturday, Aug. 23rd – Sunday, Aug. 24th: Festival Fete’s 4th annual East Greenwich Art Festival. We’re excited to welcome a whole lot of vendors past as well as a string of newcomers to this stop on our circuit. Live music, activities for the family, food trucks galore and more. This will be THE festival to close the month. See you there!
Thanks for reading and get out there this month! Stay tuned and see you soon…
