East Greenwich Art Festival

Though we love our football and our food, we love our community, too. Oddly, you might not know that this Cowboys Papa and Eagles lovin’ Daughter-in-Law hail from Rhode Island (Texas family) and Philadelphia, PA- respectively… but here we are in ‘Lil Rhody and our families are gearing up to spend an amazing weekend at Festival Fete’s East Greenwich Art Festival on August 31 and September 1.

From the site, which you can find HERE:

Festival Fete creates a one-of-a-kind community art festival featuring 100+ contemporary American craft artisans, local “festive food,” strolling entertainment, live music, free children’s crafts, and a specially-designed community art project. Our mission is to offer a platform for local artists — of various mediums and levels — to show their work. In collaboration with community talent, volunteers and sponsors, we create profitable platforms that celebrate locally grown art, food and merriment.

The festival is from 10-5pm at New England Tech in East Greenwich RI.  Featuring over 140 Contemporary American Artisans, Festive Food, Live Music and Strolling Entertainment to (YES, Big Nazo will be there), this weekend is surely not an event to miss! Come out to the East Greenwich Art Festival to bid a lasting farewell to Summer!  Best part for all the families out there? It’s FREE!

  1. We love Festival Fete, too! I just wrote about some of the local artists from the June Festival – but they all have sites so you can get their cute and clever creations from anywhere! http://motherscircle.net/festival-fete-local-art-anywhere/
    Have fun at your wedding! (I’m from Newtown, CT and my family and husband are Giants fans!) :-)

  2. What a great event! I won’t hold being an Eagles fan against you-I’m married to one. Plus, I’m a Giants fan, so that makes for some interesting Sundays!
