About the Festival
The 13th annual URI East Farm Spring Festival is a fundraiser organized and hosted by the URI Outreach Center & the URI Master Gardeners. The event, started in 2002 by a group of URI Master Gardeners who volunteered at the farm, has grown into the biggest public showcase for URI drawing close to 3,000 visitors to the 79-acre research facility. The festival's main goal is to educate the public on sound environmental practices through workshops and informational exhibits.
