Food & Drink

Rhode Island has a culinary scene second-to-none. The New York Times, Gourmet and Travel + Leisure and other pubs have applauded the state for everything from deluxe farm-to-table restaurants to classic iconic comfort food. With the Atlantic Ocean as our backyard, it's not surprising that visitors come from near and far to enjoy the absolute freshest seafood. But don't stop at our scrumptious food. We're also home to inventive and award-winning breweries, distilleries, and wineries!

For all you foodies be on the lookout for several delicious food events and festivals like the Providence Restaurants Weeks, The Charlestown Seafood Festival, and the Bowen's Wharf Seafood Festival. For more annual events throughout the year please see here.
