Join us for a day filled with everything wonderful from our Rhode Island community: food, farms, produce, gardens, crafts, history, music, dance and fun outdoor physical activity.  Watch bees make honey, artists make jewelry, worms make compost and Cabot make cheese. Your kids can learn bike safety skills at the Bike Rodeo. Learn to plant high-yield native produce, see a solar powered bubble maker and strip a bicycle down for parts.

Recycle a Bike will be on hand to accept used bikes, which they refurbish and donate to folks who need reliable transportation. Eat fabulous food from Cabot's very own chef Jimmy Kennedy as he whips up his famous Cheddar S'mores and Grilled Fish Tacos! And listen to amazing music from all the cultures that are part of our vibrant community.

This event will be held rain or shine!
