Taste of The Bay

Taste of The Bay 2020:
Reimagined For Our Partners

Save The Bay’s annual Taste of The Bay fundraiser has always been a celebration of the flavors, sights and sounds of Narragansett Bay. For years, our guests have convened at our beautiful Providence Bay Center to enjoy delicious samplings of local food and drink—all donated by local restaurants, shellfishermen, bakeries, breweries and wineries. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the ticket sales supported Save The Bay’s efforts to protect and improve Narragansett Bay.

Since we were unable to hold Taste of The Bay in-person this year, we transformed the event into a fundraiser to support our partners in the local food and beverage industry, instead!

Thank you to all who purchased a virtual ticket!
We are thrilled to announce that we raised $4,175 for our partners!

All proceeds will be evenly distributed among our loyal Taste of The Bay vendors who have been impacted by the ongoing pandemic.

Remember, you can still support our beneficiaries with your business directly, using the links below!

Taste of The Bay is an annual showcase of some of the best food our state has to offer. Although Save The Bay has had to change the event to accommodate for COVID-19, they continue to support Rhode Island's small businesses, its local food and beverage community, as well as its ecological health. Save the Bay is an extraordinary organization that has been helping to clean and educate people about Narragansett Bay for 50 years. We are honored to partner with them.
