Blithewold: Music at Sunset

{ Wednesdays through August 30 } Enjoy a picnic, watch the sunset over Narragansett Bay, and hear great music at Blithewold.

Nothing says summer in Rhode Island like watching a concert at sunset on the grounds of a historic mansion. Thankfully, the fine folks behind the Blithewold Mansions, Gardens & Arboretum happen to agree. Music at Sunset: Summer Concert Series invites guests to spread out a blanket, enjoy a picnic, and bask in the setting summer sun over Narragansett Bay. Upcoming performances include the James Taylor tribute band October Road on August 16, dance party band Superchief Trio on August 23, and reggae-rock party crew The Ravers on August 30 to round out the series.

Bringing your own booze, food, chairs or blankets is highly encouraged. If you forget those finger sandwiches, fear not. Blithewold has partnered with two tremendous food trucks to ensure you get the provisions you crave: Castaway Gourmet will drop by on August 16, and The Z Truck will serve up saladz, wrapz, and more on August 23 and 30. This year, visitors who want to get a jump on the chow down can also pre-order picnic boxes prepared by The Kitchen at Blithewold for $15. These include a house-made sandwich, pasta salad, freshly baked chocolate chip cookie, Utz chips and a bottle of water.
