Join the Rhode Island Historical Society on Saturday, Dec. 4, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the John Brown House Lawn for a day of winter festivities at the free RIHS Winter Market and Festival. The event will highlight local artisans, musical performers, storytellers, and food vendors, as well as “A Rhode Island Winter’s Tale,” a new winter-themed exhibit on display inside of the John Brown House Museum.
This event will allow patrons to come together as a community in a safe and welcoming outdoor setting to celebrate the winter season and all of the diverse traditions that come along with it.
Local storytellers and community groups will share their favorite winter-themed stories on the half-hour and guide participants through winter-themed crafts. There will be free entertainment every hour with groups including the Rhode Island Kung Fu Club Lion Dancers, the Voices of Christmas, Saunderstown Weaving School and the Pawtuxet Rangers. Shop local artisans offering pottery, paper jewelry, hand-dyed yarn, prints, cutlery, clothing, and even hot sauce, all in time for the holiday season. Stay warm with food from our highlighted vendors Lulu’s Little Pancakes and heart-shaped empanadas from Matilda’s RI. Visitors can also take advantage of free museum admission for the day at the John Brown House Museum.
The public can learn more about this event by visiting bit.ly/RIHSWinterFestival.
