EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) —Back for its 8th year “The Looff” is a summer arts festival set along the beautiful East Providence waterfront happening Saturday August 12th. “The Looff” showcases all types of art including fine paintings, photography, ceramics, sculpture, metal works, fiber, and much more. It is our goal to make art accessible to everyone and to showcase local talent. 

Also happening this weekend, and celebrating 40 years, The Black Ships Festival is taking place all weekend in Bristol, RI! The festival is a weekend of arts, culture, and fun in honor of the friendship and cultural ties between Japan and the United States.
