Earth Day Birthday

A community Earth Day celebration

First held in 2019 to kick off our 50th-anniversary celebration, our annual Earth Day Birthday Party is a free, family-friendly community event connecting Bay-lovers of all ages to fun near Narragansett Bay.

The celebration features both indoor and outdoor games and activities; performances by musicians and other performers, our “Old School Art Contest,” refreshments and more.

Stay tuned for the return of our Earth Day Birthday Party in 2023!
