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.

Festival of Historic Houses

This year, we are excited to be partnering with our friends at the West Broadway Neighborhood Association on their West Side House Tour, taking place on Saturday, October 6. More information will be available soon on the WBNA website. Our traditional June Festival will resume in 2019!
