WARWICK, RI — The Warwick Police Department’s Rocky Point Spring Festival begins at 10 a.m. Saturday with 200 vendors including food trucks, music K-9 demonstrations, movie cars and face painting.

Warwick Police Department, co-sponsoring the event with We Be Jammin’ Events and Ocean State Food Truck Festivals, have arranged for a fun-filled day of food, events and entertainment. The inaugural event will run at the park until 3:30 p.m.

Also featured at the Rocky Point Spring Festival will be WOW FaceArt Facepainting, Starzz Entertainment – Steven Quirini/Lisa D’Ambra, Jumpalooza Inflatables, Liberty Farm hay rides, llamas and alpacas.

Scores of craft vendors will also be on hand for shoppers looking a unique gift for Mother’s Day, or to treat themselves.

Among the vendors is We Be Jammin’ itself, selling Jams at $10 each with all proceeds going to the Warwick Police K-9 unit. The jams can purchased at We Be Jammin’s table. Candles sold by We Be Jammin’ are available at Sandy Paws. The candles are $20 each with $10 donated to the Warwick Police Department K-9 unit.

The partnership with the Warwick Police Department on the spring event is the latest in a recent flurry of positive developments for We Be Jammin’, seller of jams, BBQ sauces, marinades, salsas, salad dressings, ketchups, and more.

 The shop, run by Jason Wood, with the help of his mother Debbie Wood, opened its first brick and mortar location in August 2020. The business, begun with the support of the Rhode Island Developmental Disabilities Council (RIDCC) and its small business classes, has been a leading sales magnet during the annual Small Business Saturday expo at Crowne Plaza in Warwick. It has since branched out into production for local small business and craft vendor events and large-scale expos, recently partnering with food truck event organizers Ocean State Food Truck Festivals.

Where to park and other details

  • Due to recent heavy rain the event will not utilize the field at Rocky Point. The regular entrance and parking lot will be used and vendors will be located on the “old road” to the Shore Dinner Hall.
  • The K9 demonstration and other displays will be on grass above.
  • Also, DO NOT PARK any vehicle in front of the entrance located at the bottom of Rocky Point Avenue. This is a emergency entrance and violators will be ticketed and towed.
