East Farm Spring Festival

Saturday, May 6 at 9:00am to 1:00pm

URI East Farm Route 108, Kingston, RI

The East Farm Spring Festival, hosted annually by the URI Cooperative Extension, seeks to bring juried, science-based University research and knowledge out to public at large. The festival, now in its 16th year, has grown into the largest outreach event at URI since its inception, with close to 3,000 visitors to the 79-acre research facility in the span of four hours.

Our Mission

The mission of the festival is twofold: 1) to provide a forum for education, information sharing and networking amongst URI, partner organizations and the general public, and 2) to highlight URI research, outreach and Extension efforts through demonstrations, workshops, exhibits and tours.

The 2017 East Farm Spring Festival will showcase the breadth and public value of the URI Master Gardener Program, whose mission is to disseminate research-based horticultural information to the public.

Specific event details coming soon!
