The Essential Fall Bushel List

100+ must-do’s to enjoy the Ocean State’s most colorful time of year


Once the calendar flips to September, many of us are eager for all things autumn. Sure, it’s still 80 degrees through October, but the nights are chilly and the leaves are falling (which explains why you’re likely to spot someone picking apples in a sweater and shorts). Like all seasons in New England, fall is fleeting, so we’ve combed the entire state assembling this field guide to keep handy so you don’t miss a trick – or a treat. Divided by region, easily discover events both ongoing and one-off. Whether it’s a pond paddle, a main street stroll, a fest, or a feast, it’s in here. Savor it all and be sure to tag your favorite snaps using #HeyRhodyPhotos and we may use them next year.

For all events we strongly advise checking with each location prior to visiting for the latest updates. Whether or not you’re vaccinated, you’re still required to wear a mask in some settings. If you’re not fully vaccinated, the Rhode Island Department of Health also recommends that you continue to wear a mask indoors near anyone you don’t live with and outdoors in crowded places or during activities where you’re in close contact with other people who are not fully vaccinated.
