Winter Bash

The Winter Bash, a three-time Best of RI award winner, began in 2003 as a way to highlight large, underutilized historic spaces. Held in February or March each year, it is now one of the best-themed fundraisers in Rhode Island, attracting hundreds of people of all ages. Learn more about this event here.
