Hey Rhody Summer Beach Bucket List 2024

200+ must-dos for June, July, and August


Once those ice cream shop windows lift up for the first time for that coveted cone of coffee-Oreo, you feel safe putting the ice scraper away, and the sound of a random firework blast startles your pet, all the signs confirm: summer is here. Being nicknamed the “Ocean State,” Rhode Islanders rightly revel this time of year. Beaches officially open, lobster rolls are on almost every menu, and the scents of flowers, cook-outs, and suntan lotion permeate the air.

But with the longer days and warmer temps come expectations. “Summer is awful! There’s so much pressure to enjoy yourself. It’s like New Year’s Eve for kids,” says Gene Belcher of the animated sitcom Bob’s Burgers. To avoid feeling like Gene, back when it was still sock-wearing weather, we scoured our sources to provide readers with the most comprehensive calendar for June, July, and August we could assemble.

With every corner of our beautiful state hosting some kind of activity, we’re sure to have missed some, and many events hadn’t posted 2024 updates at press time, so please let us know by emailing Marketing@HeyRhody.com so there’s no FOMO or hard feelings!

To avoid summer heartbreak, please always check all information with host venues.
