Since 1965, the Gaspee Days Committee has committed to providing the community with a fun, free, and family-friendly Arts & Crafts Festival that offers its neighbors, visitors, and friends an opportunity to enjoy a day outside shopping, eating, and spending time with friends. Today, the Gaspee Days Arts & Crafts Festival brings together over 100 fine artisans as well as a number of community groups and non-profits from which patrons may purchase one-of-a-kind items that they may only find on this one weekend each year. Over the course of three days, the food court is full of craft fair eats and goodies and Pawtuxet Park fills with music being performed live by our hand-picked bands and performers. Children enjoy the many amusements and games available in the park as well. Over 50,000 people will walk up and down Narragansett Parkway on Memorial Day Weekend, enjoying the atmosphere of this long-time Warwick tradition. Never been? Maybe its time you joined us, too; we’re here every year!
