Open Farm Day with Rhode Island Black Storytellers


Join in the celebration of the 350th Anniversary of North Kingstown and find out how Historic New England's Casey Farm fits into the local history of the seaside village of Saunderstown with farm tours at your own pace between 8:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. See the farmhouse museum gallery, Casey family cemetery, markers honoring African American and Indigenous peoples, and barnyards, gardens, and fields on this extensive farmland. 

Arrive between 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. to shop with the Casey Farm Market in between touring. 

The highlight of the day is performances by Rhode Island Black Storytellers under the large market tent between 9:30 a.m and 12:30 p.m. Artists Marlon Carey, Sidy Maiga, Raffini, and Valerie Tutson of RIBS will make cultural connections through the power of music and storytelling.
