Come sample our food, our lodgings, our beaches, our activities, our shopping, and our hospitality. And take advantage of the many discounts offered on this very special weekend! This remarkable event is organized with one main objective in mind: to offer our guests a taste of what Block Island is really about and make you fall in love with it! We want you to make it your island, too.
Our pilot weekend last year was so enjoyed by our visitors that we've decided to make it an annual affair. This incredible three day event showcases the many different events and activities island visitors can enjoy - from gallery openings, nature walks and cooking classes to shopping discounts, hotel packages, restaurant specials and wine tastings.
There will be a wide range of events taking place all around the island among which everyone will find something that caters to their interests. The nature lovers will be able to enjoy kayak tours, nature walks, night sky viewings and twilight walks, as well as take advantage of many discounts offered by bike and moped rentals. The art connoisseurs will have a chance to participate in various art shows held by local art galleries. The food and cooking enthusiasts will have an opportunity to brush up on their skills during cooking classes and to experience the actual tastes of Block Island's eclectic cuisine in many restaurants offering discounts for this unique weekend. Shopping fans are invited to explore the local stores and take advantage of discounts offered only during this weekend.
Taste of Block Island Buttons will be available for purchase at the Block Island Chamber of Commerce or aboard any Interstate Navigation Block Island Ferry for $5 per button.
