Visiting Rhode Island
You don’t have to be a Brown University student to enjoy the sense of freedom summer brings to the Ocean State. This season, warm, sunny weather invites visitors of Rhode Island communities like Providence, Seekonk, Warwick, and West Greenwich to join locals in a variety of special events, festivals, and activities.
Music lovers know it’s almost time for one of the biggest events of the year. July 24th through 26th, the 2015 Newport Folk Festival brings big-name talent to venues throughout Newport. Warwick and Providence-area visitors are less than an hour drive away from seeing performances by the likes of the Decemberists, Sujan Stevens, and Hozier.
Then, the very next week, it’s jazz fans’ turn. The 2015 Newport Jazz Festival is July 31st through August 2nd, boasting headliners like Chris Botti and Jamie Cullum.
Just under a half an hour west of Warwick and the Providence area, West Greenwich is an ideal stop for summer road trippers traveling along the I-95 corridor. The town’s picturesque landscapes are the perfect setting for a summer drive and offer a great way to extend a tour of the Maritime Trail.
Filmmakers and movie buffs gather in Providence for the 2015 Rhode Island International Film Festival, August 4th through 9th. In addition to showcasing independent feature-length films, documentaries, and shorts, the event pays special tribute to Anthony Quinn with the Anthony Quinn Centennial Celebration.
Watercraft enthusiasts from all over the Ocean State descend upon Newport for the 2015 Newport International Boat Show, September 17th through 20th. See what’s new as Newport's famed waterfront becomes packed with the latest boat models and marine products.
