Warwick Weekend Events Friday:

Artist Lunch & Learn All are invited to a free artists talk in our gallery this Friday at WCFA, 3259 Post Rd, Warwick, RI at noon. Talkin’ Trash Exhibit prize winner Blanche Milligan will share her experience with weaving and in particular answer questions her up-cycled piece that is woven with discarded items and tech!

Roger Williams Food Truck Fridays The Carousel campus at Roger Wiliams Park Zoo has a lot of open space and rolling hills shaded by trees, the perfect spot to grab dinner from a food truck and listen to music and entertainment during the park’s Food Truck Fridays event. The outdoor food truck festival at Carousel Village starts at 5 pm. Attendance is free, just pay for what you eat and drink from an ever changing rotation of more than 15 food trucks each week.

If you miss this one, don’t worry. They’re going on every Friday till the fall.
