Warwick, RI – The Gaspee Days Arts and Crafts Festival will treat crowds to the food and wares of more than 100 art, craft and food vendors for its 53rd annual celebration along Narragansett Parkway this coming Memorial Day weekend.

About 60,000 people are expected to stroll Narragansett Parkway throughout the long weekend starting Saturday, May 26, lasting through Monday.

The three days also feature a food court full of craft-fair fare, Pawtuxet Park filled with live music and children’s amusements and games.

The fair usually helps raise about half of the approximately $40,000 the Gaspee Days Committee needs to fund the Gaspee Days Parade, scheduled for June 9 this year. The Committee runs several other fundraisers for the event from May through June 15.

The festival begins at 10 a.m. each day:
