The Big E

Only In Rhode

Just 3 short days until The Big E begins!! For the uninitiated among you, The Big E is short for The Eastern States Exposition, which began more than 80 years ago and is one of the largest regional fairs in the country. More than 1 million people attend over the course of 17 days and it's quite unlike anything you've ever seen!

The best part (in our opinion) is The Avenue of the States. Each of the 6 new England States participates in this event, and each State's building is a replica of its original Statehouse. The Rhode Island building, therefore, looks  just like The Colony House in Newport

RI Bldg at The Big E

In each State building, you'll find all kinds of things from that State (logical, right?) This is, of course, the ideal place for us! Only In Rhode Island has participated in the Big E since 2005, and it's always and adventure!
